Healthy Breakfast Cookies

I’ve had this Breakfast Cookie recipe in a photocopied hand-out for years. When my husband & I started riding the bus at 6:15 every morning, I started looking for fast and healthy breakfast recipes. I pulled this one out, made some changes to lower the fat and raise the fiber and this is what I got. In addition to a healthier recipe, the cookies turned out to be more moist and tastier than ever! They still don’t quite keep us full until lunch so next time I think I will make them a little smaller & sandwich some peanut butter between two, enjoy these healthy breakfast cookies!

Because let’s be honest, peanut butter totally makes everything better and it sticks to you a little more to help you feel full. I feel like there are a few breakfasts that I love, but I know aren’t good for me and they wont keep me satisfied in a healthy way which means I’ll be making poor decisions all day. I try to choose better breakfast choices all week, like these breakfast cookies and then save a pancakes morning for Saturday. One day a week doesn’t kill ya, especially if you’re still smart about what you eat for your other meals.
