Big Breakfast Cookie


This is a curl up on the couch with a hot cup of coffee or tea on a cool morning kind of breakfast. I spied this Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie on Dinners, Dishes and Desserts over the weekend and it’s been on my “to make” list ever since.

I followed the recipe almost exactly as she has it listed and used peanuts as my chopped nut of choice and full-fat plain yogurt instead of greek. The result? It’s good! Really good. It tastes a lot like a cookie, except it’s chewy and not so buttery, crumbly, or sweet. It’s sweet, but not overly so. I think I will save this one for a special weekend treat  because it’s not the most feel good thing for me to eat the first thing in the morning.

I could, however, see myself eating this after a long workout. Maybe with a little less chocolate, some mashed banana and peanut butter stirred in. The possibilities are endless!
