Coming up with healthy snacks and breakfast choices can be challenging in a house with growing teenage boys. Every chance I can get them to eat their vegetables, I do.

They’re paying attention to what foods they are putting in their bodies and how healthy choices can boost their performance in school and in their athletics.

The soft batch of oatmeal carrot cake cookies are the perfect on the go on the go breakfast choice.
