Easy Breakfasts for Busy Mornings: Breakfast Cookies

I’m not going to lie, mornings are hard. Especially when you have toddlers you have to get to school, and dance, and music lessons — and whatever other extracurricular activities they’re in. Getting out the door on time is a daily struggle for many families. I try to get as much done as possible the night before — picking out clothes backpacks and lunches, stocking the diaper bag, and even preparing breakfast when I can. Which is one of the reasons I LOVE this recipe. I can whip up these easy breakfast cookies on a lazy Sunday afternoon, and then Monday morning we are ready to rock-and-roll. Plus, my kids are crazy about them — and that’s saying a lot.

  • Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Flatten the tops slightly — the cookies won’t rise or spread when they bake.
  • Bake for 15 to 16 minutes until slightly browned. Allow to cool completely, then store in an airtight container or freezer bag.

Trust me, your kiddos will think you are the coolest mom ever! Want extra credit? Serve these “strawberry milkshakes” (strawberry-banana smoothies) alongside the cookies. Yum!
