This one is for the healthy-gourmet moms who have winter break coming soon. Weeks on end with kids at home are imminent. Soon they will be clogging up the kitchen with their adorable faces and empty bellies. For you, you wicked-cool Mom... Breakfast cookies. You read that right. Breakfast. Cookies. Don't worry though, nobody will be calling CPS because of lax nutrition habits with the young ones...in fact, they might be praising your ever-loving-name for being so drop-dead-awesome! Side note: How many adjectives about Mom can we hyphenate together before it gets ridiculous?
Texas Pure Milling 7-Grain and Seed Baking Mix and our All-Purpose Flour join forces with Whole Rolled Oats in these breakfast cookies. We also used a combination of sugar-free stevia baking blend and coconut sugar, to reduce the sugar, but still give a good sweet taste to these delicious treats. That is coupled with pure fruit spread instead of sugar-filled jam! So grab the little munchkins, and all your magic grain goodness to start baking up some love!
