Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast Cookies | TheMarathonMom.com

 

I’m hesitant to label these as “healthy breakfast cookies”.  Because it sounds like a joke.  But really?

They’re not all that bad at all as far as sugar content goes!  And who wouldn’t love to get away with eating a cookie for breakfast, right?

And seriously, with as many hungry, active boys-on-the-go as I have, I need something they can grab quickly on their way out the door sometimes that’s better than a pop tart.  Wait, I don’t buy those.  And actually, these cookies are healthier than most cereals you would pour into a bowl.  So there.   Cookies for breakfast justified.  😉

This recipe is pretty friendly and adaptable so, feel free to experiment with different add-ins for your family.  I, of course, used chocolate chips, and when our 17-year-old ate a cookie, he said he’d prefer raisins.  Alrighty then.

Here’s the handy dandy printable recipe for you.

    I just made these today. They are really good! I used regular flour but am thinking I’ll use whole wheat flour next time. My kids devoured them for snack 🙂

  6. A fast recipe I’ve used for several years…all my kids love them !
    Breakfast Cookies:
    2 C flour
    2 C oatmeal
    1/2 C oil
    1 C (or less) brown sugar
    1 1/2 C milk
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt ( if you want)
    1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    Mix, spoon onto greased cookie sheet, bake 350* 12-15 minutes.

    They freeze great for Sunday morning on the go. I make a triple batch, I like to add a small handful of mini chocolate chips ( I mean fruit & nuts) .
