When you have three little ones to feed, get ready for school, prep lunches, and fit your own shower in there then you might feel the same way! Sure, I am thankful for another day on this beautiful earth, but my hectic schedules sometimes get the best of me, and I skip breakfast and sub in my some coffee.
Not the breakfast of champions by any means!
Lately, I have been trying to sit down by 8 am with a bowl of cereal and my vitamins. I like a crunchy, and not so sweet breakfast cereal that actual has some nutrition benefits. I guess you could say I am really enjoying the box of Kellogg’s Origins® Cereal I received…so much so that I need to buy another!
I really love this cereal because it has all the crunch I love with a touch of honey. It is made with ancient grains like wheat, brown rice, barley, KAMUT® brand Khorasan wheat, spelt, and quinoa. That sure is a mouthful in both senses but trust me when I say it is really tasty, and a great way to start the day!
The Kellogg’s Origins line also has an all new granola which is called Kellogg’s Origins Raisin Apple Granola. It too contains ancient grains, and is a great option alone or in my Breakfast Cookies recipe.
Yep, that’s right, the foodie in me could not resist creating a Breakfast Cookie recipe which is basically granola cookies. They have a crunchy outer and a softer middle and are jam-packed with flavor! The tender raisins, and apple made these cookies irresistible and the perfect on the go breakfast idea!
Here is how to make these Breakfast Cookies (makes 24 cookies):
3/4 cups softened butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tablespoon water
2 cups flour
2 cups granola-I used Kellogg’s Origins Raisin Apple Granola
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper
Cream together the softened butter, sugar, and extract. Mix in the egg, and water.
Fold in the flour, baking soda, salt, and grains
Mix until well combined and dough is a large ball
Pluck generous tablespoons and place them two inches apart on the baking sheet
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until slightly golden brown
Cookies will be crunchy and totally delicious! I really need to get more Kellogg’s Origins Raisin Apple Granola because it was one of the best granolas I have had! Jam-packed with fruit, and ancients grains it was truly awesome! These would even be a great option to leave for Santa…let’s get him eating a little healthier!
