Mix and Match Breakfast Cookies
Cookies for breakfast? You know I am all about that business. But let me do you one better. How about some mix and match breakfast cookies? Or better yet, my husband has jokingly started to call them “choose your own adventure” breakfast cookies. Remember those books? Yup, me too.
But before we talk about our own adventures, let’s first get down with the fact that these cookies are nice and nutritious. And a great way to start the day. Packed with good-for-you ingredients like oats, flaxseed and banana, they certainly help fill you up and keep away that early morning hunger.
Added bonus? They are super simple to whip up. Take out two bowls and a spatula and you are on your way to some awesome cookies. How’s that for easy? Now, do these taste like full of butter ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies? Nope. But they are soft and more cake-like in texture with a light sweetness. Perfect for breakfast.
And now for the fun. So many possible mix-in combinations. So many ways to make them your own.
Do you keep it simple with a classic combo like pecans and dried cranberries? Or are you feeling like you need a little chocolate fix … so maybe some chopped dark chocolate and hazelnuts? Or what about pistachios and dried cherries? Oh the choices!
Dramatic much? What can I say, I get excited about cookies.
