Healthy oatmeal breakfast cookies(Read article summary)
That's right. Cookies for breakfast!
Naturally, I had to adapt them for my own. I added coconut for a little more sweetness, and nuts for crunch, but this recipe is easily altered to satisfy your tastes.
Iâ€™m going to add peanut butter to mine next time. And you don't have to just eat them for breakfast, they make a healthy dessert cookie, too.
