Why does summer have to be nearing its end? Waaaahhhhhh! That’s me throwing an adult tantrum. I don’t even know why. It’s not like I go to school in the fall even though I still get that beginning-of-semester anxiety. Anyone else still experience that? Maybe it’s because I’ve been playing around with the idea of going back to school to get my Master’s degree. I might be a little insane. I just like piling it on.
One thing I will always make time for, though, is ensuring my little guy has wholesome, healthy, home made meals and snacks. I’ve said this many times before – meal prepping on Sundays is a must to making that happen. I’ve also been pretty fortunate to have a child who will pretty much eat anything. Fruit, veg, mushrooms, spicy, sour – you name it, he’ll consume it. At his day care, as a fun opportunity to get some hilarious photos of the babies, the teachers gave them limes to taste. All of the littles made the most hilarious, scrunched up faces except my child. He sat there and happily ate his ENTIRE lime. His teachers told me that they’ve never seen that happen before. Sometimes I question whether or not that kid has taste buds. Of course, he’s just like his father whom I’ve seen eat burnt cake out of the trash. Like father – like son, I guess.
However, you don’t need a child who eats everything to eat these breakfast cookies. Shoot, you don’t even need to be a child to eat and enjoy these. They are deliciously simple, easy to make ahead of time, and good for you. Oh and just 4 ingredients. These cookies are perfect for busy mornings. I always grab a couple on my way out of the door when I’ve forgotten to eat along with the rest of the family.
These cookies are also very versatile as you can add and swap things out making them perfect for your munchkin. Peanut allergy? Use another nut butter like almond or cashew. Doesn’t like raisins? Use some dried cranberries or chocolate chips.
ZERO WASTE TALK | How are these cookies “zero waste”? All ingredients can be purchased in the bulk bins with your own containers or can be found in the produce section. You could even make your own peanut butter like my SIMPLE recipe Here! If you don’t have bulk, look for food packaged in something other than plastic like paper, glass, or metal.
