Hey, friends! I know we are all spending more time at home and in the kitchen these days. I’ll never complain about that… but, also… there are things like dishes (that I don’t want to do) and sleeping (that I do want to do).
So, to help you dirty less dishes and get more time resting… I bring you…
These can be made at the beginning of the week and last for several days. They are super simple and made from ingredients you may already have. By having a pre-made breakfast, you won’t have to cook each morning and may be a little more excited about lunch and dinner meals.
I got this recipe from my friend, Rebekah, when I went to visit her in Colorado a few weeks ago. We worked on a video she was making for Camp Well about Clifton Strengths. Rebekah is a Certified Strengths Coach and so so talented in her field. I can’t wait to talk about her more. But until then…
Breakfast Cookies!!!! Hope y’all stay safe and enjoy.

Ummmmm…. also, after I wrote this, I pulled out my copy of Shauna Niequist’s “Bread & Wine” to look up a recipe and realized she has a Breakfast Cookie recipe in that book!!! I love her and that book. Her recipe is very similar. The thing I love about both recipes is that you can add or omit all of the things like chocolate chips, pecans, almonds, coconut, cranberries and so on. I think it would be so good with peanut butter chips! Anyways, just wanted to update you!
