Are you tired of cookie recipes yet?
I know you’ve been inundated with Christmas cookie recipes, but I promise these easy breakfast cookies are different. You’ll feel energized and ready to go, not headed for a sugar crash.
I bought this Dr. Cookie book in my Weight Watchers days, and it’s been on my cookbook shelf ever since. As I’ve said before, I don’t bake often, so when I do, it’s Dr. Cookie I turn to for inspiration.
With one can of pumpkin left in the pantry after Thanksgiving, and little time to spare the week before Christmas, I decided to add to my breakfast cookie recipe collection and bake these sweet, fiber-packed cookies for a quick morning meal.
As you can see, you don’t need to feel any guilt enjoying these sweet morning treats. Containing a mere 160 calories per cookie, you can save much needed calories for New Year’s gatherings.
Enjoy the next few days until the New Year celebrations begin. It’s nice to have a break, isn’t it?
