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.
(If you're curious, 2003, 2006, 2008, 2010, and yes, it's a busy house)
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/
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!
