you guys up for another recipe? i hope so because we go crazy for these breakfast cookies at our house and devour them so quickly that i recommend making 2 batches at a time. they are perfect for a quick breakfast or after school snack on the go and you can freeze the extras for later. i also thought i would share the stickers i made for those crazy mornings when everyone is running in different directions. download, print and cut so you have them handy…. links and recipe are below!
PEANUT BUTTER BREKKIE COOKIES: makes 24 , 10 minutes prep, 11 minutes to bake each batch
- 1 cup favorite all natural peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (good fat = good for the brain on a school day!)
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 1-1/2 cup quick oats
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour (or whatever you have on hand)
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (less sugar than other types)
preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
in a large bowl mix peanut butter, brown sugar and coconut oil until combined and smooth. mix in eggs. add rest of ingredients and stir until combined.
using your hands (or a cookie scoop) make 2-inch balls, place on prepared baking sheet and press down slightly. cookies won’t expand while baking so you can place them closer together – i usually fit 18 or so. bake for 11 minutes.
let cool before serving. great for breakfast, lunch or snack time! freeze leftovers and thaw for busy days!
what do you usually hand the kids on their way out the door when you didn’t have time to sit down for breakfast?
