    Hi Ruth,

    This sounds delicious! If only I didn’t give up sweets for Lent! Haha.

    I wanted to let you know that I signed up for EBA 3.0 yesterday and I’m incredibly excited. I already watched the Welcome Video and Unit 1. Working through my assignments at night after my wife and I put our 16-month-old son to bed. I look forward to doing the work and being successful. I appreciate the opportunity.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    These cookies sound amazing! I’m thinking even better for a grab and go snack with some vanilla yogurt as a nice compliment. I could probably exchange the wheat flour for oat and then I’d be set. Thanks and love the decrease in sugar too!

    These look delicious and would be great to have on hand on our busy mornings. Especially when it becomes lunch time and I realize I still haven’t fed myself breakfast.
    I will give this recipe a try in our house, thank you for the post.

    Oh my gosh we LOVE cookies and obviously as a good mom I probably shouldn’t serve up regular ones for breakfast..these are awesome!

    Cookies for breakfast? Yes, please! With a GF daughter, I’d swap out the wheat flour for oat flour, but I’m planning to try these.

    Ruth:
    These look so delicious. I could eat a dozen no problem. I can’t wait to make them.

    Lol, I love oatmeal cookies with raisins and walnuts or pecans. I’ve often eaten these for breakfast, very similar to my mom’s recipe!

    These look yummy! I’m wondering if you’ve ever tried swapping out the butter for applesauce and or the sugar for stevia? My body seems to over-react to sugar so may give it a whirl and see how it goes 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration!

      Hi Tori,
      I haven’t tried to make those modifications with this recipe but I’m sure you could cut the sugar out totally if you wanted and replace the butter with coconut oil. 🙂

    I’m not very good at baking but your recipe does not look difficult at all. I should give it a try this weekend.
