I’m always on the hunt for good breakfast foods that I can make ahead for the kiddos. Since we have to get up at the butt-crack of dawn to send them on their way for school, it’s super important to me that they eat something decent for breakfast – not just a quick sugary cereal. But since I resemble something like a kind-of drunk, very cranky Shreck first thing in the morning, cooking can be a tricky feat. Making stuff the night before helps with that, a ton. (So does coffee. Loads of the stuff.)
These brekkie cookies are a fantastic solution to my brain-dead before six a.m. problem. Not only are they full of good-for-you fat, protein, and whole grains, but they taste amazing. And since they keep super-well, I can make them the day before (as long as I’m clever enough to hide them from the family, otherwise they tend to disappear). Hear me when I say: YOU NEED THESE COOKIES IN YOUR LIFE.
I’m posting a link to this recipe since I pretty much use it as-is. I only made a couple changes to the recipe (see below), and they were minimal, so it’s hardly fair to call this recipe mine.
*I use raw honey instead of brown sugar.
*I bake the cookies in a mini-muffin tray instead of on a cookie sheet.
*This isn’t really a modification, but I used coconut oil for my oil source.

I had to modify your recipe a little as I can’t eat cranberries (they interfere with my meds) and don’t particularly like chocolate chips, but they’re in the oven now and smelling fantastic! Thanks for the suggestion, but I doubt they’ll survive until breakfast. 🙂
That’s one of the great things about this recipe – you can totally modify the mix-ins to taste. I hope they turned out great!
Yum – will have to try these, especially for my college sons who are often late getting up!
I hope you love them! Ours sure disappear quickly… 🙂
My cookies never had a chance to get fully cool, being scoffed almost as soon as they came out of the oven. Must make more next time, they’re really delicious! Thanks Myndi! 🙂
*high five* Awesome cookies for the win!
