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 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 😉
