Looking for some great breakfast cookie recipes that are GOOD!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I am hoping to find some breakfast cookie or bar recipes that are tasty and inexpensive to make....Have tried a few but haven't hit anything yet that we love and would make/eat often...

My son is not a fan of nuts, but I can sneak some in if the recipe isn't overwhelmed with them. We also need a chewy or muffin-like texture instead of a crunchy granola bar feel. Thanks!

Just subbing.  Working on this one myself.  :)  It's fun being able to tell the kids we're having (breakfast) cookies or (yogurt) popsicles for breakfast.

We really like this recipe in my house - http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/01/11/oatmeal-raisin-breakfast-cookies/

 

This version of the same cookie is actually our favorite. However, the dried fruit is expensive for it around here - http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/04/16/mini-chocolate-chip-breakfast-cookies/

Have you tried baked oatmeal?

That looks great- thank you!

And I've never even heard of baked oatmeal- what do I do? Oats are perfect, too, because I forgot to mention that my son has some reflux trouble with lots of whole wheat...Thanks!

I don't know about your son, but for me it's always been a texture thing.

I don't mind raisins or nuts on their own, but in cookies and the like they squick me out.

So i'll sit and eat half a bag of pecans (not a huge fan of walnuts tho) but won't touch bread or cookies with them inside.

We make cake-y pumpkin cookies using this recipe as a base and then doubling the pumpkin and spices.

For a non-breakfast treat, I recommend adding butterscotch chips.  Yum!
