Blueberry Granola Breakfast Cookies

Whether you are in a hurry to get out the door or lounging around on a Saturday, an easy simple breakfast is always nice!  I tend to wake up too early everyday because I need some time to myself before everyone else awakes to process the new day and get back on my feet!  Me time...if you will!  I usually keep actual cooked breakfast for the weekend because there is just so much to do in the mornings.  Awake the kids, get them dressed, hair and teeth brushed, shoes on the right feet, papers signed, lunches packed...you get the point!  This family eats more than their fair share of cold cereal during the week and I wanted to find some breakfast ideas that are still easy and fast, but warm and a little healthier!

I found a recipe on the side of a Krusteaz Blueberry muffin box and with some major modifications I have invented the tastiest little warm morsels you could ask for!!  First off I will say I love Krusteaz!  I am not getting paid to say that, and this is not a sponsored post, I just really love the price and simplicity of their products!  I understand it's not Gluten free and maybe overly processed Yada Yada Yada, but I really don't give a hoot when it comes to their products!  They are affordable and yummy to my tummy!  There I said it...whew!  Now back to my super fabulous, super easy, Breakfast cookies!

Here is what I did

  • Preheated the oven to 350
I then added these ingredients to a bowl

  • Krusteaz blueberry muffin mix
  • 1 1/4 cup honey almond granola
  • 1/2 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 organic free range dog egg (Dog is the name of our chicken)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
I mashed all the ingredients together with my hands (the coconut oil made my hands nice and soft!)
rolled the dough into 2 inch balls and placed on a cookie sheet on parchment paper!

cooked for 10 minutes and  DONE!! (throws hands up in the air, like on master chef)

As you can see the whole process took less than twenty minutes and we had warm, tummy filling, delicious COOKIES for breakfast!

What is your go to breakfast during the week??
