A quick and healthy make ahead start of your morning. Great taste, soft texture with a flexibility of components. And oh so easy to make.
It started when my wife went to a grade school breakfast this week and loved something call a “breakfast cookie.” Call me out of touch but what is this? So Google time again, there’s a recipe for everything. Yep, way too many recipes. So I let my physician training kick in to pick one.
I wanted no white flour, no white sugar, and lower fat if possible. I want it all, low glycemic and low fat. Well just using those criteria, I eliminated about 90% of the recipes. Many labeled “healthy” were a lot of sugar, butter, and flour. NOT Healthy. I ended up with two good recipes, one from Food.com and the other from WebMD. I went with Food.com and added some nuts. Otherwise, I mostly followed the recipe
Rating: 9 Taste 9 Texture 9 Ease 9.5 This is not a “cookie” in a dessert sense of the word. This with a piece of fruit or low-fat milk will make a good healthy relatively low glycemic breakfast.
Total time: Very quick. 10 minutes prep and 16-18 minutes times two for baking.
Notes: add any nuts and dried fruit you want. I got 18 cookies out of this recipe. That makes them about 110 calories and the fat about 1 gram per cookie. You must bake these on parchment paper or a baking mat. If you don’t, it is going to stick horribly. Stand mixer is not required but just makes this easier.
powder. Turn on mixer and mix well. Add baking powder and soda and again mix well. With the mixer on medium, slowly add the bran flake mixer to the yogurt mixture. After well mixed, add chopped walnuts and raisins.
