Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies with Peanut Butter and pecans-the perfect way to start off your day!
My kids are up before I am. My son and older daughter are out of the house to catch the bus for school before I’m out of bed. Now don’t go thinking I’m a horrible mother. My son catches the bus at 6:10 and my daughter at 6:15. My hubby is the morning person. He’s the one up at 4 am, without an alarm clock. He makes sure they’re up and showered in time. I’m awake, I’m just sitting in bed drinking my coffee and watching the morning news. It’s one of my quiet times. The youngest will usually come in and sit with me (a little cuddle time) before she heads off to catch the bus at 7:10.
Needless to say, they don’t get eggs and bacon for breakfast on school days. We do breakfast for dinner and on weekends we’ll make something special like Cinnamon Rolls or Monkey Bread. No, breakfast on school days needs to be grab and run. I usually have muffins in the freezer for them to grab or granola they can put in a baggie to munch on.
Sometimes you need to change things up a little. And when that change includes a little chocolate? You know it’s a change for the better.
Theses cookies are full of good stuff. Oatmeal, pecans, coconut, bittersweet chocolate, peanut butter. Not overly sweet, full of flavor and they’re sturdy. They won’t crumble up from a little toss in the book bag. Much better than a silly Rice Krispie Treat.
