You say cookies for breakfast….
And the kids says… “You are the best mom in the universe and no one is better than you and I think I will obey your every command and clean your house today!”
Said no kid ever:-)
But I got pretty stinking close to that response when I told the kids I was going to be making cookies for breakfast…
And it helped that they made them themselves (this makes them so proud and willing to eat whatever it is they made:-)
Add to all this: THIS IS THE HEALTHIEST COOKIE EVER INVENTED!!!
And they taste amazing!!!
They are also very very versatile!! So whatever you have on hand WORKS and just changes the taste slightly.
So for all of you interested in cookies for breakfast…. Here you go!
