Multigrain Breakfast Cookies
But first, let me ask you how was your long weekend if it was your case? Did you enjoy the lovely weather and outside activities? Did you catch enough chocolate bunnies? Or perhaps you were that smart cookie having taken a few additional days off resulted in a very long weekend? Please don’t answer this question. I still want us to be friends, but your answer might change everything.
Talking about cookies, these Multigrain Breakfast Cookies are the smart way to enjoy a dessert. Besides, a cookie for breakfast? Isn’t it what you’ve been dreaming of?
One friend of us, while stopping by our place, always brings some multigrain biscuits which we like. They are indeed delicious. However, when last time I finally read the ingredients, not everything could be considered healthy like using margarine or granulated sugar. So I decided to recreate them. But only better and healthier.
The first batch turned out delicious but too sweet and crisp (I overbaked them).
Better Than Just a Dessert!
Though, next time I altered the recipe, and these Multigrain Breakfast Cookies turned out perfect. Being a humble person it’s hard to say this kind of things, but honestly, the result was much better than the original. Instead of butter (I never use margarine in baking) I used coconut oil, and instead of sugar (First time I used brown sugar), I used a little of coconut sugar. It’s not an obligatory ingredient (Dried cranberries or you can also use raisins or other dried fruit give enough sweetness), but I think coconut sugar adds a subtle caramel flavor which is nice.
As you see, these Multigrain Breakfast Cookies are packed with fats and carbs, and they are also high in calories. On the other hand, we’re talking about good fats from the seeds and nuts (Plus, coconut oil is a good alternative to butter).
Practically, one or two cookies for a breakfast will be enough to feel full for a couple of hours. They are nice after workout snack too.
Seriously, who would reject a dessert for breakfast when it’s also a healthy one? I’m telling you guys – you need these Multigrain Breakfast Cookies in your life like you need a bowl of oatmeal or granola.
