Do you typically think of cookies as a breakfast food?
If you’ve been following us for a while than you most definitely should. We’ve got a plethora of breakfast cookie recipes such as:
Well here’s another one to add to the list – Coconut Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies.
Why shouldn’t we think of cookies as a breakfast food? They are delicious and satisfying and if that is what you are craving for breakfast, you should enjoy it. My only beef with traditional cookies is that they can lack in the fullness factor. So for me, what I look for in a cookie I want to eat for breakfast is some staying power. And these Coconut Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies are loaded with oats, peanut butter, sunflower seeds, an egg and coconut. The trifecta of fat, fibre and protein will help keep you full and satisfied and of course, there’s chocolate.
Another thing that differentiates the dessert cookie from a breakfast cookie is the sweetness. When I’m craving a chocolate chip cookie, I want it to be chewy and sweet. But for breakfast, I usually don’t want something overly sweet. Hence, I’ve kept the sweetness down a bit. That being said, if you like your brekkie sweeter, feel free to up the amount of honey.
Now, if you want to eat a standard chocolate chip cookie for breakfast, you go for it. Heck, I’ll join you! But when you want something a little different, give these Coconut Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies a try.0
