Little John asked for cookies for breakfast this morning. So momma made cookies.
Goes into pantry. Gathers healthy, fall colored ingredients. Mixes together. Hopes for best. With a little inspiration from Pinterest of course.
Honey & coconut oil looks gross mixed together.
I decided to double the recipe so I would have extra for Wine & Wellness tonight. But I didn’t think to use a bigger bowl…..
Much better. And the fairy dust of basics: pumpkin pie spice.
It saddens me to report that I had to use 2 bowls for this recipe. Unbeaten eggs in cookies = gross.
Beaten eggs + dry ingredients + coconut oil honey mixture + pumpkin puree = this pretty, fall looking cookie “dough.”
me: buys all organic & obsesses about kids’ diets
also me: lets them eat cookie mix with raw eggs.
drop onto cookie sheet in spoonfuls and shape by hand.
Bake for 16 minutes at 350 degrees F. Why 16? Because I set the timer for 15, but was changing Hank’s diaper when it went off. An extra minute passed before I took them out of the oven and they were perfect. So I’m sticking with 16.
Healthy breakfast cookies that will keep in the freezer for the mornings we are running late for school. (every morning)
