Breakfast Cookies ~ Recipe from wife~mama~foodie

“What are you making over there?” my husband asks as he saunters into the kitchen as bowls and cupboard doors are clanking and clanging.

“Breakfast cookies. They are healthy ones. You won’t like ‘em,” I reply.

“Now. . . you don’t need to stereotype me like that,” he kids, “What’s in ‘em?”

“Oatmeal, oat flour, flaxseeds, chia seeds, pumpkins seeds, bananas and dried cranberries.”

He scrunches up his face and hunches his shoulders like Richard Nixon.

“Well, there’s the dough. You can taste a bit if you want.”

“Nah. . . I think I’ll wait till they’re done.”

“You mean until they’re gone?”

“Yeah, that sounds better.”

He leaves the kitchen and saunters back to his chair to continue being a golf spectator.

Note to Self: Here’s the recipe for healthy breakfast cookies. 🙂

I am participating in the 14th Annual SOL 2021 March challenge. For 31 days, I will attempt to write and share a small slice of life from my days. If you’d like to read more of today’s slices from other teacher-writers, please head over to twowritingteachers, who have also committed to this challenge.

  1. THANK YOU! I am so excited to try these delicious healthy cookies! It took me years to get my husband to try chick pea pasta and make the switch from white flour pasta. Your husband will come around. In the meantime, keep baking healthy cookies and keep posting the recipes!


  2. The recipe looks good, so I might have to give it a try. Thanks for passing it along. The cookies look like the kind of thing that gets picked up and eaten if they’re just sitting there. Good luck with that!


  3. Amen! Don’t you love how interested and curious those husbands are until they find out our intentions behind our recipes. Just this week I tried a new White Vegetable Lasagna with zucchini and yellow squash and Jonathan kept saying, “so, you mean there is no meat in here?” “No meat.” I would respond. “Hun, we watched the same documentary on what meat does to your arteries,” I reminded him. He responds, “I know, I know, but seriously, no meat? It’s lasagna.” I am still trying to figure out how I can get our family leader, an avid hunter, to cut down on meat.
