So my youngest, Tucker, is 20 months old and has never been a good breakfast eater. He still LOVES, seriously LOVES, his milk and will drink that but it is a challenge for me to get him to eat pancake, eggs, toast, grits, or cereal. He loves fruit but I have been trying to find something more filling than just milk and fruit. Also trying to find something with little to no sugar is a challenge. He used to eat cereal bars but has since stopped so I am brain storming trying to find something else.
|Left: Fresh blueberries, Right: Dried cranberries|
Here's my recipe:
Makes 6 3 inch cookies.
2 tsp vegetable oil
2 TBSP ap flour
1/2 cup oats (I used old fashioned but I think quick serve would work fine too.)
2 TBSP ground flax seeds
1/2 tsp baking soda*
2-4 TBSP honey**
*The recipes I saw used baking powder but I was out so I substituted baking soda. It worked just fine so I will continue to just use baking soda.
**Add honey if you want a sweetened cookie. I would be fine eating the dried cranberry version without much honey but the fresh blueberry needed more to me. Add your desired amount.
