We are completely addicted to breakfast cookies in this house. While they are very similar in ingredients to the muffins I make, there is just something totally awesome about eating a cookie for breakfast. The kids love it. And I should probably just include myself with “the kids”. This batch was inspired by my youngest daughter’s favorite oatmeal flavor, apple cinnamon.
Made with apples, cinnamon, bananas, Greek yogurt, whole wheat flour and oatmeal, these are perfect for breakfast or as a mid-day snack. To appeal to my other daughter I had to add a little extra sweetness, which white chocolate chips work perfectly for. If we didn’t have a tree nut allergy around here, I totally would have added walnuts or pecans and I highly suggest that you do if you make these – they would be incredible with them. I used our favorite variety of apples, Pink Ladies, but you can use whichever apple you prefer.
We keep our breakfast cookies in the fridge and freezer. I love having the freezer stocked with breakfast cookies and muffins to avoid the whine of “what’s for breakfast”. I’m not a fan of morning whine. Or anytime whine. These help combat that quite nicely.
