Yes, you guessed it.  This is another fantastic recipe from the Lose Weight by Eating Cookbook.  These cookies make me happy.  Why?  Because cookies for breakfast.  That’s why.  This batch made their way to work with me everyday until they were gone.

These Giant Breakfast Cookies are packed wholesome treats and the perfect on-the-go alternative to granola--no bowl, spoon, or milk required.These types of breakfast or snack cookies are perfect for any busy schedule.  Even for an emptynester like me.  The hubby and I just attended my nephew’s wedding last weekend and in a couple of month’s my niece will be tying the knot as well.  We’ve been busy attending weddings, showers, and other family functions lately and I haven’t had as much time to spend in the kitchen as I usually do on the weekends.

These Giant Breakfast Cookies are packed wholesome treats and the perfect on-the-go alternative to granola--no bowl, spoon, or milk required.I am so happy to see young love and watch all my nieces and nephews achieve their goals as well as my own children.

Let’s hope all these recipes will serve as a place they can go to and make memories with my recipes and stay healthy at the same time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
