Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies Recipe
Cookies for breakfast!? Yes! They are made with quinoa, flax, oats, and naturally sweetened with honey, so they are packed with good stuff!
Disclaimer: I think they are ideal for a quick breakfast bite or as a snack. The texture is almost a cross between a scone and cookie, so depending on you and/or your family’s sweet tooth, they might not quite hit the spot for dessert.
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 6 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
