Breakfast Cookies

In an effort to appeal to Greg’s nephews and my sweet tooth, I came up with the idea of breakfast cookies. My mom is a baker and used to say we could have homemade cookies for breakfast around the holidays, which I loved and I still do.

Thinking of a way I could sell this to Greg’s family I created breakfast cookies. What makes them OK for breakfast? Well the lack of preservatives and other stuff you get in store bought cookies, and the oatmeal…its mostly the oatmeal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3 cups flour (white, AP or Wheat)
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, room temp
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 large or extra large egg
  • 2 1/4 cups old fashioned dry oats
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used mini)
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 bake. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In your mixer or a large bowl mix your butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, honey, vanilla, and egg together.
  3. In a separate bowl mix your dry ingredients: Flour, baking soda, salt, oats.
  4. Slowly incorporate dry into wet ingredients.
  5. Once fully incorporated add chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.
  6. Refrigerate dough for 2 hours or over night.
  7. Scoop dough into 3-4 tbsp size balls, place on cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 11-14 minutes.
  9. Rest on cookie sheet for 1 minute.
  10. Put on cooling rack for 2-3 minutes.
  11. Serve and enjoy!

These cookies were a hit with everyone! Breakfast cookies for everyone!!!
