Tonight I made Granola Breakfast Cookies. I love these cookies! I had to restock my supply. LOL Most mornings I eat two cookies and a banana. These cookies keep me full through the morning. I’m not full where I can’t stand it. I’m full enough where I don’t snack throughout the morning. I came across this recipe in a vegetarian cookbook that I have. I went to a vegetarian cooking class with one of my good friends from my old job and we were given this book. Since the first time I made them I haven’t stopped. My husband and I became vegetarians this year so I’ll be using this cookbook more often.

*Add to mixture. Shape into cookies. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes.

***Mixture is a little wet/sticky so flour your hands if forming cookies.
