Maybe my kids are the only cookie monsters on the planet, but when they wake up and see cookies sitting on the table for breakfast they get a dazed grin on their faces. There’s even been a few times when my kiddos spied the breakfast cookies and turned around and yelled up the stairs, “It’s not eggs this morning!” That special announcement invoked a small stampede from the other kids who came romping down the stairs.

But here’s a secret for parents: most breakfast cookie recipe are healthy! Sure, your kids are getting cookies, but breakfast cookies are not your regular sugar cookie recipe. They are often packed full of fruit and protein.

Oooh! And don’t forget this: most breakfast cookies are freezer-friendly. That means you can have a baking day and bake them ahead, sleep in and still serve a crazy-awesome breakfast to your family. Breakfast troubles solved!
