Cookies for Breakfast


My children eat chocolate chip cookies for breakfast. They have no idea I’m sneaking all this nutrition in to them, they see the scant 1/4 c. of mini-chocolate chips on top and think they are getting away with something.


1 1/2 c. Agave Syrup (roughly one small bottle’s worth)

1 c. Peanut Butter (don’t use the natural kind that separates or the cookies won’t hold together)

2 c. Grape Nuts (or if you are cheap like me … nutty nuggets, doesn’t that name sound tasty?)

2 c. Oatmeal

1/4 c. Chocolate Chips

1/2 c. Sunflower Seeds


Nuke Agave Syrup and Peanut Butter for about 30 seconds until it becomes runny. Mix everything but the chocolate chips together. Press into 9 x 13 baking dish (I like to put parchment paper down first because it comes off easier). Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Bake at 350 for 10 mins.

This past time my sunflower seeds had gone rancid so I snuck in flax seeds instead. Geez this post is making me sound crunchy. I assure you I am typing this while downing a chemical laden coke slurpee. Mmmmm, tasty tasty chemicals.
