Hello April! You sure came quick.
I woke up this morning thinking about breakfast cookies. What are “breakfast” cookies anyway?
Well, most breakfast cookie recipes I have seen are usually made without flour, sugar and butter making them a healthier option than traditional cookies.
Really though, maybe it’s just a mental or marketing thing. Adding the word breakfast in front of the word cookie just makes it okay to eat cookies for breakfast.
No matter what we call them, these healthier, satisfying cookies can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Awhile back I made these Healthy Oatmeal Cookies that use mashed bananas instead of flour and butter.
I revisited this recipe and decided to add some new flavors to my breakfast cookies: chocolate, almond and coconut. I mixed up a batch this morning and had chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies for breakfast!
