Mom, can I have…

cookies for breakfast?

You remember those days. When you would desperately ask for a cookie before you have eaten your meal. Now, we have grown into adults that know cookies is not part of a balanced breakfast. But when we were children, we always asked for what we really wanted.

I channeled my inner child and my wannabe grown-up this morning with sugar cookie oatmeal.

1/2 cup oatmeal
1 cup water
1/2 banana
1 tsp maple syrup
splash of vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp white chocolate peanut butter

Topped with one of my mom’s freshly baked sugar cookies.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. And dessert. Do you see a trend here?

My holiday bowl of oats were satisfying and delicious. However, they were too sweet, even for me. So next time I make sugar cookie oatmeal, I will omit the maple syrup. Give it a try! You won’t be disappointed. My oatmeal put me in a good mood for the rest of the morning!

What was your favorite food while you were a child? Mine was tuna casserole and anything brownie related ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I think mine was probably spaghetti. I did (and still do) love a good sugar cookie though. I love the idea of sugar cookie oats.
