I swear I have not fallen off the face of the planet. I know the blog has been neglected for a few weeks now and in my last post I had mentioned that I would be back to blogging, but time has just gotten away from me. I’m now 1 day away from the kids starting school! I can’t believe I have a Fourth and a Ninth Grader!! What in the world?!
With the kids starting school tomorrow I have spent most of this week making some breakfast items I like to keep on hand/in the freezer, for a quick and easy breakfast. Breakfast cookies are something that I can make and then keep in the freezer until we’re ready to eat them. There are just those mornings where we do not have time for me to stand and cook them breakfast, so having a nutritious but quick alternative is helpful. Plus, who doesn’t want cookies for breakfast?
The breakfast cookie thing started because the Boy wouldn’t eat breakfast when he was around 3-is; so I had to bribe him to eat by making these cookies. At 3, he used to think it was the coolest thing ever that I let him have cookies for breakfast! Little did he know that they are jam packed with things that are good for him and I was getting him to eat breakfast! Win, win, right?
The recipe below makes 4 dozen cookies and a lot of the mix-ins are optional, so if there’s something you think your family would prefer, by all means switch stuff out. That’s what I did and how I have the combination of what goes into our cookies now. If you chose to add in something different, let me know what you add so I can give it a try myself.
I will warn you, they are VERY filling! I would say a serving size is 2 cookies. I know.. you’re probably thinking I’m crazy, only 2 cookies, trust me.. you can’t eat more than 2!
