It has been a while since I shared a recipe here! Beckett and I love to bake together and cookies are always a favourite. Oddly, he really prefers the dough over the actual cookie… but hey, more cookies for me! This particular recipe is great because it’s packed with more nutrients (and you can easily make it gluten free!). It’s a pretty forgiving recipe… which is important when you’re cooking with a kid because your measuring will never be exact! haha I really like adding mini chocolate chips to this for just a hint of dark chocolate- just enough to appease my addiction, you know.
These cookies do have some added sugar but it is optional. Coconut sugar works great as does brown sugar. Feel free to omit it if you want more of a healthier breakfast cookie. You can always add more applesauce to sweeten or a little maple syrup. Just make sure to add more oats if the dough starts to feel too wet!
