Gotta tell you – these Oats & Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies is plain amazing.
T and I are back in Austin! It’s been crazy ever since we have been back. We have experienced almost every type of rain one can imagine, 60% to 70% percent humidity is somehow now dry to us, and we have nearly overdosed on beer, tequila, and brisket.
We have both managed to gain the Texas 5 (much like the freshman 15 only the Texas 5 only takes a week to gain) and are happily exhausted from too much imbibing in all things good. It’s good to be back. That being said….I need a break. I need a break from brisket and cocktails and cookies and pizza and donuts. I need some spinach and oats and kale.
Before we left Penang, I was doing all I could to make some sort of cookie that would be more healthy than a cookie but still felt like a cookie. You want to know something? A cookie shouldn’t be healthy. It just shouldn’t! It should unapologetically have lots of butter and refined sugar. Yeah, that’s what I think.
However…I found a way to trick my mind into making a healthy cookie!!
It’s a breakfast cookie!!!
These cookies are naturally gluten/refined sugar/butter free. They are exactly the kind of cookie I need in my life right now while I take a break from all the meat and all the butter-filled pastries. They are perfect for breakfast but also great for when you need a snack and you can’t possibly eat another donut.
