Bacon Cheese Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies are the perfect option for the coming busy mornings, as you prepare for the kids to go back to school and on the bus!
One of the most difficult things for us this time of year is getting a good breakfast. Now that school has started, I need to make sure the kids have something to keep them full and satisfied but that is easy to eat during the busy morning rush to make it to the bus stop.
Everyone in my family loves breakfast cookies so I decided to make some savory Bacon Cheese Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies as the perfect start to the morning.
This breakfast cookie recipe is delicious and can easily be made at the beginning of the week and enjoyed all week long. They also make perfect additions to a school lunch box for the kids. I love using oats too because they are rich in dietary fiber and an incredibly versatile whole grain. Bob’s Red Mill oats are kiln roasted to give them a wholesome flavor.
This healthy cookie recipe uses rolled oats which are rolled flat to produce the flakes most people recognize. Steel cut oats tend to be used more for breakfast cereals than baking but they are still a great source of fiber.
Everyone in the family loves these and I get requests for them a few times a week. Even though the ingredient list looks a little long, they are so simple to make and we can enjoy them all week long with just one batch.
Mathlete loves grabbing them on his way out to the door too. That is, if the kids left any when they left for the bus.
