I don't know how things are in your household, but we are always looking for quick and easy breakfast and snack foods for our kids. I have one kiddo who plays basketball and travel soccer. I have one kiddo who is super picky and plays soccer and basketball, and then the youngest will only eat what the picky one eats.
Finding recipes to meet the needs of all three kids can be challenging. Finding one that the entire family can enjoy while we are running to a million different places is even more important. That is why these delicious breakfast cookies are so great for our family.
As a mom, I know that they are eating something healthy that is packed full of energy for them. I am not feeding them a heavy breakfast like McDonald's or something sugary like doughnuts. Instead, they are eating these healthy breakfast cookies that are packed full of nuts to help them feel satisfied, full, and ready to go.
Whenever I know we are going to have a busy weekend, I will whip up a batch or two of these to take on the road for the whole family. Now, 1 batch will only make 16 cookies. There are five people in my house. I, typically, will make 2 batches or more of these delicious cookies on busy weekends.
To save me time, I use our Recipe Remote calculator to quickly change the yield of my recipe. With this tool, I put in my desired yield and the Recipe Remote will calculate the amount of ingredients I will need for my new recipe. I do not have to do any of the math. It is all done for me.

Simple and easy. That is how I like my recipes. I don't have time for complicated recipes when I have to a mom taxi on the weekends. That is why I love this recipe. As a family, we travel pretty frequently to Disney. To help reduce the cost of food while at the parks, you better believe I will make these breakfast cookies.
I mean, seriously, who would complain about getting to eat cookies for breakfast. My kids think it is great. If you have dietary restrictions, these cookies are great for those with a gluten allergy as they are made with gluten-friendly ingredients.
