I have long been a lover of eating cookies for breakfast.
I will admit it.
Finally, I don’t have to feel guilty any longer.
Here is a breakfast option, chock full of healthy stuff.
based on Zucchini Granola Cookies
3/4 c. butter, softened
1 ½ c. packed brown sugar
1 t. orange extract
1 t. vanilla extract
1 c. whole wheat flour
2 ½ c. all-purpose flour
3 c. granola (without dried fruit)
1 t. baking soda
|1 t. sea salt
3 c. shredded zucchini
1 c. white chocolate chips
In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, orange extract and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, granola, baking soda and salt. Whisk together.
Add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in zucchini and white chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 6-1/2 dozen.
Besides needing recipes to use up zucchini right about now, don’t you think this recipe is a good rationalization to eat cookies for breakfast?
