Hola, mi amigas … how is everyone doing today?!?!
I’ve been in a mood lately – - a cookie kind of mood ( when am I not in a cookie kind of mood)
And when I’m in a mood … I gotta gotta gootttaaa do something about it.
So I did.
Back on track … remember how I was telling you about Sarah. Well I sent her these … as well as some gourmet chocolate… a cute cupcake change purse and I also sent her these cookies.
And now I want to share them with you
I don’t mean to be bossy … but make them.
They’re yummy ….
They’re relatively healthy … relatively … or so I told myself.
I’ve actually been able to convince myself that these are so healthy I need to have them for breakfast
Cookies for breakfast.
Ohhh what a concept – what an idea – - what a dream come true!!
Besides taking over the world, my other ambition in life is to completely satisfy the cookie monster.
Now that I think about it, it’s possible that we were probably meant to be best friends – he’s cute, cuddly, eats cookies 24-7… what else do you need in a BFF?!?!
Go ahead … have a cookie or two
(dozen) for breakfast!!
Triple Grain Trail Mix Breakfast Cookie
1/2 cup Butter, room temperature
¼ Cup Brown Sugar
½ Tsp Vanilla
¾ Cup Flour
½ Tsp Baking Soda
½ Tsp Cinnamon
½ Tsp Nutmeg
½ Tsp Sea Salt
1 Cup Oats
¼ Cup Barley + ¼ cup boiling water (allow to sit until the water is absorbed and barley puffs)
¼ Cup Quinoa + ¼ cup boiling water (allow to sit until the water is absorbed)
½ Cup water
1 Cup Trail Mix dried fruit and nut mix
Preheat oven to 350 oc. Prepare Cookie sheet ( I used a muffin top pan … )
Over low heat, in a small pot add puffed barley and quinoa – add ½ cup of water and allow to simmer until all of the water is absorbed ~ approximately 15 minutes. When finished, remove from heat and allow to cool.
In the meantime, cream butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
Mix’er up!! Add your dry mixture to the wet stuff. Next, add the oats. Then the cooled barley/quinoa mixture
And last but not least … the trail mix.
Fill your pan/ form into 12 large cookies.
Bake 15 minuets.
Allow to cool (well… at least don’t chomp them when they are still hot enough to burn the roof of your mouth :))
Breakfast is served.
Have a great weekend my loves, I’ll be back on Sunday – brining a little joy to your life
