Healthy Breakfast Cookies

 

Looking for something yummy, quick and healthy first thing in the morning, how about a breakfast cookie. A friend of mine gave me this recipe, which I so love because it’s kind of a throw whatever you have on hand, kind of recipe.

Today we made pumpkin, peanut butter, oatmeal, coconut, raisin, and flax seed cookies.

You can substitute almost anything for anything else. If you’re not a pumpkin fan, you could have 1 cup of peanut butter instead of 1/2 a cup, if you don’t like peanut butter, any nut butter will do.

Not a fan of maple syrup, try honey. 1 egg or 2 eggs, it depends how chewy you like your cookies. I use two eggs because I love soft chewy cookies.

After adding in the pumpkin, nut butter, eggs, maple syrup or honey, baking soda and salt, you need to add about 3 cups of whatever.



A Whatever Suggestions List:

  • Oats
  • Raisins
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Hemp Hearts
  • Walnut pieces
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Any nuts or seeds
  • Coconut
  • Ground flax
  • Cocao
  • Dried cranberries
  • Ground chia

On a be careful note, these little baby cookies, with all their real food goodness, pack a calorie punch. I could easily down 10 cookies at a time and today I think I did. That's 1370 calories. So just a warning, be careful nut butter = very high in calories.
