It is important to start the day with a nutritious breakfast for both grown-ups and kids. These oatmeal breakfast cookies are a better for you breakfast, disguised as a cookie. Perfect for a quick breakfast on-the-go or an after lunch treat.
These cookies could not be easier to make and you can make them in large batches and keep them in an airtight container for the week. Butter and sugar are creamed in a bowl and sweetened with honey, egg and cinnamon are mixed in.
The dry ingredients are mixed in a separate bowl, then the dry mixture is added to the wet. Mounds are dropped onto a parchment covered baking sheet and they are baked for 12 minutes. That’s all there is to it.
