Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

Posted on

Okay, to be honest, I’ve never eaten these for breakfast.  Maybe a mid-morning snack a time or two, but not actually as the only thing eaten for breakfast.  These are probably every bit as nutritious as pancakes or waffles, but something about the thought of eating a cookie for breakfast just doesn’t work for me.  Just had to be straight up with you.

I went ahead & called these breakfast cookies because they are sweetened only with honey & are made entirely with whole grains.  If you were to compare them with almost any breakfast cereal that you pick up at the grocery store, I’d pick these any day due to nutrition & taste.  And, if you have kiddos, you could be the super cool mom that feeds them cookies for breakfast {maybe for a special occasion or treat, a more protein packed breakfast with eggs or the like would probably be better most days}.  We love having these around for afternoon snacks or something to grab on the go.  Maybe someday I’ll even eat one for breakfast :).

Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

1/2 c. butter, softened

3/4 c. honey

2 eggs

1/2 t. vanilla extract

3 c. whole wheat pastry flour

2 c. rolled oats

1 t. sea salt

1 t. baking soda

1 t. cinnamon

1/2 c. whole milk

1 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°.

Blend together butter & honey.  Add eggs & vanilla, mix well.  Mix in all the dry ingredients, stir until combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets.  Bake for 14-18 minutes.

Enjoy!!

    • I order our whole wheat pastry flour through Azure Standard, a co-op that delivers locally. Let me know if you’d ever like to try ordering through them. They have a lot of other great stuff too!
