Healthy Breakfast Cookies – Kid-Friendly Too!

There are a few things I DO NOT like for breakfast: namely oatmeal and plain Cheerios. But if you make them into something delicious, I’ll eat all of them! Enter these healthy breakfast cookies. Yes, they have sugar and a touch of butter, but they are packed with oats, Cheerios, and ground flax – all know for recusing cholesterol. So you can sign me up for that reason alone.

Not to mention… this is a great grab-and-go breakfast for the whole family on those mornings where you don’t have a lot of time. We can eat them in the car on the way to drop off the kid at school. I know, not the best practice – don’t judge my life! Lol…
