I don’t know about you but I’m a huge savory breakfast eater. Eggs and some sort of protein is perfection ….with greens or veggies. I LOVE eggs so I have no problem eating them daily but every now and again, I like to switch things up. More often than not, it’s because I’m craving a little sweetness or what have you but it’s rarely because I’m bored of my “usual”.
There are the days however, that a quick grab of a muffin or even a bar is all I have time or the appetite for. And when I do have the time, a warmed treat with ghee or butter and a hot cup of coffee is sometimes just what the doctor ordered.
These Breakfast Cookies were perfect to have on hand this week! There wasn’t a lot of time spent in the kitchen with spending so much time with our family in a time of need (there’s more on that subject in the previous post). But it was definitely nice to be able to eat a couple of these as we ran out the door. They are technically cookies but they are filled with all the good stuff to satiate and keep you energized for quite a while.
I took a bag of these along with me one day and someone said, “Whoa, these are filling. I thought they were just a cookie.” Music to my ears as they are intended to keep you satisfied until lunch. I certainly wouldn’t eat these on the daily but they are great to have on hand in a pinch or for when you just aren’t feeling eggs and bacon!
