Breakfast Cookies

I strive to start my kid’s day with a hearty breakfast, a high calorie love note to send them on their way to school or at least give me a few hour’s respite from the kitchen. But it takes creaticity – breakfast cereal is not nutritious enough (my opinion) and frankly some mornings I just can’t get myself to do a pop-up Cracker Barrel-style spread.

What we have agreed upon is smoothies,  chock-full of frozen fruit,  yogurt,  sometimes wheatgerm and honey.  I chuckle inwardly,  knowing they have little inkling how good it is for them.  Still,  I try to put eggs or waffles alongside. Recently I dusted off a recipe I had tried a few years ago and realized it was a pretty good compliment to the smoothie,  while adding a novelty bent to breakfast.

There is some work involved here,  but the payoff is a great tasting cookie that,  when paired with a smoothie or glass of milk leaves you feeling the good and the kids thinking they’ve scored!

Recipe Notes

It's tempting to eat them all in a week, but don't!  Freeze between sheets of waxed paper and dole out sparingly.  You're family will think you've lost your marbles the first time you offer them.  They'll quickly get over any misgivings when they get a taste!
