Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast cookies| Suzanne www.you-made-that.comCookies for breakfast... too good to be true right? I’ve got a lot of reasons to eat cookies for breakfast but none of them are good for you except these cookies. I’ve been seeing a lot of breakfast cookies on Pinterest but when I saw this recipe from Crazy for Crust and I had all the ingredients handy, I had to try them out. I’m not sure if they are cookies or a paperless muffins or both but they are tasty. The texture is cakey, slightly sweet, and definitely oaty. I added flax meal to the batter for some extra goodness, and some macadamia nuts since they are my favorite nut lately. I made a crucial mistake when explaining these to my family I used the word healthy! They didn’t touch them but that’s okay because that just meant more for me, I ate them all, little by little since I froze them and just reheated in the microwave when I wanted some. I never felt guilty eating these cookies for breakfast and that is reason enough for me to make them again and again. I may try to eliminate the coconut oil and replace with applesauce to lighten them up on fat and calories. I hope you give these healthy breakfast cookies a try if you want to eat your cookies for breakfast and not feel one bit guilty!

I’ve always seen healthy and cookies in the same sentence to be an oxymoron. Seriously healthy? I salute you! They look delicious.
