@JTWINS98--glad you liked the recipe. And recommitting is good! Reevaluating goals and your overall plan periodically is a good way to make sure things are working and identifying anything that isn't working.

It's not about how bad you want it...it's about how hard you're willing to work for it

Just found a few more yummy breakfast ideas, including another breakfast cookie. Ok--I may be fixating on cookies--but if I can eat one for breakfast and not feel guilty, I'm happy!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies

Ingredients

2 medium ripe Bananas, mashed
1 cup of uncooked Quick Oats (certified gluten-free if necessary)
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips (certified gluten-free if necessary)
Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a non-stick cookie sheet with cooking spray or use a non-stick silicone baking sheet.

Combine the mashed bananas and oats in a bowl. Fold in the chocolate chips and place a tablespoon of each on the cookie sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes. Cool and enjoy!

I came across this recipe today for "breakfast cookies". Of course, I only saw the word cookie..then when I read it again, I saw the word breakfast.

Surprisingly these are healthy cookies. Lots of fiber and hopefully flavor!

I am a fan of Ellie Krieger and her recipes. She does wonderful recipe make-overs to make our favorites, lighter and healthier.

Her cookies are worth a try, I'm sure. I'm posting the recipe and the link to the video:

Ingredients
3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup (1 small jar) strained carrot baby food
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup bran cereal flakes
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup walnut pieces, lightly toasted in a dry skillet for 2 minutes, until fragrant and chopped


Directions

Place rack in center of oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Whisk together flours, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Combine butter, oil and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on high speed, scraping down sides if necessary, until sugars have dissolved and mixture is light in color, about 1 minute. Add egg, carrot puree and vanilla and beat an additional 30 seconds. Add flour mixture and beat an additional 30 seconds. Add oats, flakes, raisins and walnuts and mix over low speed just until incorporated. Dough will be slightly sticky and less cohesive than traditional cookie dough. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using between 3 to 4 tablespoons of batter, form a ball and place on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining batter, leaving about 3 inches between cookies. Wet hands and use palm of hand to flatten cookies until about 1/4-inch thick. Bake for 12 minutes, until cookies are fragrant but still soft. Let cookies cool slightly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
