Anyone who claims that they never, ever leave the house in the morning without first enjoying a wholesome breakfast is either wearing their superhero cape under their regular-person work clothes or is lying. Of this, I am completely convinced. In many homes, if everyone makes it out the door with brushed teeth and two shoes, that’s a victory. Breakfast? That’s a bonus…
…but not anymore! This recipe is fast and easy, tastes great, freezes well, and offers a complete, portable, low sugar, high fiber breakfast. Tomorrow morning, grab one or two of these as you race out the door. Have a great day!
Ingredients (makes 16 large cookies)
1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup whole oats
1/2 cup high fiber breakfast cereal
1/3 cup raisins
1 tablespoon quinoa
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
2 tablespoons softened butter
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup all natural applesauce
1 teaspoon almond extract
Step 1) Combine first 11 ingredients (all dry ingredients except sugar) in a large mixing bowl. Blend well.
Step 2) Combine last 7 ingredients (all wet ingredients plus sugar) in a small mixing bowl. Blend well, and add to dry ingredients. Stir until just combined.
Step 3) Drop heaping tablespoons of cookie dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Step 4) Bake in preheated, 350 degree oven for 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Parchment paper may be reused once or twice before discarding. Enjoy!

Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
Any suggestions? Appreciate it!
WordPress is a great place to start – user friendly, with plenty of available support. Most importantly, have fun!
