I love creating recipes that let me serve up breakfast, but be ahead of the game. Let’s be honest…I AM NOT BAKING BREAKFAST COOKIES during the busy chaos of school/work mornings, but I will make them on a Sunday & serve them up throughout the week…My guys are picky, but these were a hit so I wanted to share.
Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies by Jodie Fitz
1 large egg
3/4 cup honey
½ cup cinnamon applesauce
½ cup low fat vanilla yogurt
2 Tablespoons light olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¼ cup flour, all-purpose
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
¾ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups old fashioned oats
1 large apple*
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Wash the apple. Peel and core the apple. Chop the apple into fine pieces in either a mini chopper or food processor.
Whip the egg by hand. Stir in the honey, applesauce, yogurt, olive oil and vanilla extract together. Add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir the ingredients together well. Pour in the oats and cut apples; stir thoroughly until the oats and apples are evenly distributed.
Using a large spoon or cookie scoop, create 12 -18 large cookies on two non-stick baking sheet. Bake for approximately 15 minutes; until the bottoms are slightly browned. Let cool, store in a storage container and serve for breakfast.
This recipe makes 12 – 18 cookies; depending on the size of the scoop used.
Breakfast Suggestions: Serve with yogurt or a glass of milk and fruit.
*You can use your favorite type of apple in this recipe. I typically make mine with a golden delicious or gala; two of my favorites.
