Have I ever told you that I never drank coffee until I had my third child (E)? That says a lot about his personality, doesn’t it? I sort of resorted to coffee to be able to function the first year of his life and have continued since then. I’m sure many of you parents can relate.
And yes, cookies for breakfast. How can it get much better than that?! Seriously, I love coming up with a variety of breakfast options for myself and my family. Most of the time I eat my homemade granola as do my kids (or some kind of whole grain cereal). I branched out a bit this time and made these simple almond breakfast cookies made with Simply Pure® Creamer. And they turned out amazing! And although I change up breakfast on occasion, one thing that stays the same for me is coffee, coffee and coffee every morning. And it’s a must to include creamer.
Since I started drinking coffee I have experimented a ton with different creamers and sugar combinations. Recently I discovered the Simply Pure® Creamer brand that contains only 5 ingredients and is made with real milk, cream, and sugar. At times, especially when I first started drinking coffee, I’ve been known to put way too much creamer in my coffee (ask my husband, he often ask whether I’d like some coffee with my creamer). However, with Simply Pure® Creamer both the vanilla and caramel flavors are strong enough that they don’t require as much creamer to make the coffee taste delicious.
How fun is it to eat “cookies” for breakfast?! Seriously, even as an adult I love the thought of eating cookies for breakfast, even when I know they are full of nutritious ingredients. And when using oats (whole grains), almond or peanut butter (protein) and flaxseed (healthy fats), you can’t go wrong! And these cookies are super simple to make, literally a 2-step process. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and add to a baking sheet to bake. Then time to enjoy!
Hope you enjoy these nutritious yet delicious breakfast cookies. I’d love to know what got you to start drinking coffee? Maybe late-night study sessions in college, first job demands or children!?
I found the Simply Pure® Creamers at my local Walmart in the dairy aisle.
