This Raisin Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies Recipe is the best way to jump-start your day on the right foot. You will love having these ready to grab when you’re heading out the door. Oh, and did I mention that they are kid-friendly to0!? If you are looking for more Breakfast Recipes, here are some of my favorites!
When it comes to breakfast, I’m always looking for recipes that are quick. When I say quick I actually mean fast enough that we can just grab and head out of the door in 2 seconds flat. Have you tried to make kids move fast in the mornings? So difficult, am I right?
So anything that reduces the amount of time we spend in the mornings is welcomed, appreciated, and encouraged around here. These cookies have been a lifesaver for us, they are incredibly delicious (picky eater approved!). They are healthy and filling (mom-approved) and they are quick and batchable so you can make a huge batch on Sunday and then have enough breakfast for the week, so the time saver and money saver in me also approves.
Actually, I usually make a double batch and freeze one-half, and then just defrost the number of cookies I need each morning in the microwave once we are ready to eat them. In my opinion, it doesn’t get any easier and faster.
And can we please talk about the fact that they are really filling. Because they totally are! I mean they are really jam-packed with oatmeal so it’s kind of like porridge but way more fun. For me, the secret is not over baking them because they are really delicious when they are slightly soft in the middle.
And while I went with raisins because everyone loves them around here you can also swap them for peanuts, almonds, or even cranberries. Chocolate chips may also be a great option as well, although not quite as healthy.
