Cranapple Breakfast Cookies 3

I’m a big girl, with no kids in the house anymore so I could have gotten away with eating a cookie and no one knowing.

Then I had a thought… What about making a breakfast cookie that would be quite healthy and completely┬álegitimate to eat first thing in the morning… Filled with healthy fats, oats, flax and fruit.

Alas a new cookie and breakfast was created! If you have a child that just doesn’t like eating breakfast or doesn’t have time, just pop a few of these into them ­čÖé
