Breakfast foods are a family favorite. On Saturday mornings we always try our best to make a fun and special breakfast. It's a great way to start our weekend off. But let's talk about that week day. I know our week days consist of running around like crazy, trying to get everyone out the door. Insert Soft and Chewy Breakfast Power Cookies.
These "cookies" are a great way to start your day. Soft and Chewy Breakfast Power Cookies are great for grab and go while still capitalizing on high proteins to get you through the morning. It taste like peanut butter cinnamon oatmeal in cookie form. Yum, two of my favorite flavors!
What to look forward to!
- Peanut Butter
- Walnuts-optional, but delicious
- Ground flaxseed- a protein power food!
How to assemble Healthy Breakfast Cookies
First mix your wet ingredients in a stand mixer. Once fully incorporated, mix in your dry ingredients leaving the nuts and craisins for last. Saving the nuts and craisins for last helps
The batter comes out thick. These are drop cookies, so don't plan on rolling them out like tradition cookies. Drop about ¼ cup, unpacked, dough on a parchment lined cookie sheet. I love my silicone mat pan liners that act as reusable parchment paper. They are easy to use and best of all, easy to clean!
Again, unlike tradition cookies, these Soft and Chewy Breakfast Power Cookies, aren't going to spread across your cookie sheet. They are drop cookies.
I love that everyone in the family can enjoy this breakfast cookie. You can easily double or triple this recipe as needed. I know our family needs to! Substitute craisins with another dried fruit, or substitute walnuts for another nut such as almonds.
Great for camping and other adventures!
Our family is always looking for good camping and adventure breakfasts that get us through the day. These cookies are great just for that! They don't need to be refrigerated and are a great source of protein and nutrients.Print
