GBBO inspired breakfast cookies recipe week 1

Healthy vegan cookie recipe to celebrate GBBO

In honour of last night’s Biscuit Week on the Great British Bake Off, here’s a healthy vegan breakfast cookie recipe 

So we are all jumping for joy and celebrating the start of a new series of the Great British Bake Off. And to get you inspired to get your oven mits on, Daniela Fischer, yoga teacher and plant-based recipe developer, shares a super yummy oaty cookie recipe.

And it gets a healthy thumbs up from Healthista’s Nutritional Director Rick Hay. ‘It has the oats to help with feelings of fullness so they make a delicious breakfast with a cup of tea. The spices will boost your metabolism and the cinnamon will help you keep those fingers away from the cookie jar. Well, after you have these.’
