cookies for breakfast (plus recipe)


Opal, "you know mom, lots of people have cookies & milk for breakfast!" 

Me, "oh really?  are you trying to tell me that you'd like to have cookies & milk for breakfast?"

Opal, "sure!!!"

So this morning, I made some breakfast cookies for my little girl...

...and she liked them, so I thought I'd share the recipe with you in case you feel like having cookies for breakfast too.

Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

4 ounces butter (room temperature)


1/2 dark brown sugar

1 large egg

1/4 honey

1/3 apple sauce

1 tsp vanilla

Dry ingredients ~

1 1/4 ground oats (I pulsed mine in food processor until the consistency was like flour)

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/3 cup ground walnuts (they can also just be chopped, Opal just doesn't like "chunks" in her cookies unless it's chocolate)

1/4 whole oats

*  cream butter and brown sugar together

*  in a seperate bowl whisk egg, honey, applesauce, & vanilla together and then add to butter / sugar mixture and combine

*  in another bowl combine all dry ingredients and then add to "wet" mixture and stir until combined.

Scoop batter onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper.  Will make 12 large cookies or 24 small cookies.

Bake at 325 for 7 minutes, rotate pan and bake for approx 5-7 more minutes.
