honey nut oatmeal breakfast cookies

It's no doubt morning is my absolute favorite time of the day. I guess that would make me a, uhh, morning person? Weird.

I'm crazy and am usually in bed by 9:30 every night WHICH means I'm up and ready to conquer the day before 6.

I totally love it.
Being up before the rest of town, no dogs barking {yet}, no cars. Just birds, trees, and breeze.

Every morning, I walk out to the kitchen in my pajamas and turn on the hot water for my first cup of coffee. {… I drink instant. Is that wrong?}

Then I sit down on the couch and start my morning off the right way with some Jesus before things get busy and stressful.

While I was making my coffee this morning, the idea for breakfast cookies came upon me. 

Yah, I know there's like a zillion billion and one recipes for breakfast cookies out there. Not to toot my own horn errrr anything, buuuuuut… Mine are the best. 

The texture of these cookies is more like a muffin than an actual cookie. In fact… you could totally make this dough, throw it in a muffin tin, and you're cool. 

The honey nut flavor in these cookies reminded me of those granola bars I made awhile back. Sweet, nutty, flavorful, and warm.

The best thing about these cookies? They're hearty and healthy enough to eat for breakfast! They're great with your morning coffee and a side of fresh fruit. 

Breakfast just got awesome. 

… AAAAND I just realized this is my third cookie recipe in a row.

  1. Aaaaaaaaaand, I just fell in love with these cookies! :) YUM. I'm going to go shopping and make sure we have all the ingredients for these cookies because who wouldn't like cookies for breakfast?!

  2. These look super awesome! I love cookies for breakfast. I also love mornings, but I didn't when i had to get up at six. Good for you that you love mornings so much!

  3. These look great, but since I'm allergic to nuts, would these work without them? Thanks!

    1. Yup, that should be fine! But since nuts are part of the dry ingredients, you may need to add a little more flour or oats. Hope you enjoy :)

  4. Do you have to use soymilk or could you use 2%?


Thanks so much for taking a moment or two of your time to leave a comment! I love 'em!
