Cookies for Breakfast? Yes, Please! How can you go wrong with a breakfast like that? These little Oatmeal breakfast cookies are full of oatmeal, apple and cinnamon so they really pack some great flavor. Plus, they’re sweetened with maple syrup so they are a little bit healthier cookie option for a snack too!
You could also add walnuts to add some protein into the cookies. We loved them! My boys ended up taking them as snacks to school all week! They were the perfect little snack that really filled them up!
