Sometimes they can even take the edge off a Monday morning. Seriously! I just grab one of out of the fridge, pop one in the office kitchen microwave, whip up my little latte, and I’m ready for the work day.
When I see the last couple lonely cookies in the freezer bag, it’s time to start baking breakfast cookies again! Luckily, they only take about 35 minutes start to finish to replenish.
Take the edge off the week
They’re perfect for busy mornings, and for those who don’t like making a big deal out of breakfast. Also, for those who love sweets with coffee but want to avoid white sugar and flour, this is the cookie for you.
That’s me all the way! I love sitting down with a good cuppa and biting into something freshly baked that is actually pretty good for my body. And your kids and office mates will love these little treats during the week.
These little breakfast cookies can totally brighten up your work week – this is why I’m sharing the recipe with you. Have at it!
