We are having some real challenges getting to church on time lately. …. we’re not getting there a few minutes after it starts …we’re barely getting there before it’s over.
Last weekend, we tried getting up earlier… but with all the last minute stuff we needed to do… pottying, drink, dirty diaper, nursing…. all of a sudden, late again.
This week, I want to try dressing the kids before breakfast, and having a no-mess breakfast. The answer: breakfast cookies.
We test drove the recipe today, and evidently, a bunch were gone before I could even take a picture.
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 c rolled oats (we used quick oats)
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c applesauce
3 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp of butter (softened)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a cookie sheet (we used parchment paper instead). Whisk dry ingredients, except pecans. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to mix wet ingredients. While mixing on a low speed, add dry to the wet. Use a spatula to blend in pecans. Drop onto prepped cookie sheet, and bake for 8-9 minutes, until golden.
These cookies were delicious! It was also easy enough to let the kids help.
