Fall Breakfast Cookies
I know this may sound weird to say Breakfast and cookies in the same sentence but my thought on this is why not? I started making breakfast cookies years ago because I wanted something that I could quickly grab that was full of lots of good stuff that would hold me over to lunch. I like granola but I get tired of it sometimes.
A long time ago I was at a French restaurant for their small bites with coffee and tea service. They served these amazing cookies that I am sure had at least triple the butter of this recipe but it was loaded with nuts and dried fruit which is healthy and full of nutrients. At first, I didn’t think I would like them because they reminded me of fruitcake (which I am not a big fan of). After my first bite I was in heaven! They were soooo delicious and so full of flavor. So as I always do, I went home to recreate this and this is where my recipe came from. Just as delicious but I am sure with much less butter. Now, because they are made with sugar, butter and flour which needs to be eaten in moderation. However, my theory is the other good stuff in the cookie negates all of the bad stuff 🙂 You can substitute your favorite sweeteners if you do not want to use sugar and make this cookie your own creation. I usually use nuts in it as well (almonds, walnuts or pecans) but I just threw this together with what I had on hand that day.
Go ahead and give this a try and add it to your morning routine and give yourself something to look forward to at the start of your day!
