Monday Morning Cookies

Just as a little pre-note before the biscuiting commences please Follow my blog with Bloglovin (but be warned Bloglovin' is a place that will steal hours of your life, even more so than Pinterest...)

On Thursday evening I made some butter biscuits so I could play with my new cutters. I then proceeded to eat at least one biscuit with every meal, breakfast included. This got me thinking about making some breakfast biscuits or something I could scoff in the morning and still feel wholesome. And lo these ridiculously easy breakfast biscuit/cookie/cakey type things were created.

This recipe is loosely based on Vicki's recipe but I've made a few little additions.

To make six pretty sizeable cookies I used:

1/2 cup apple sauce

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 ripe banana

3/4 cup of oats

a small handful of raisins

a small handful of almonds (any nuts would work, chopped into little pieces)

3 dates (chopped in to smallish pieces)

a large teaspoon of desiccated coconut

a large teaspoon of milled linseed (I used this stuff, mostly cause it's yummy but also because it's crazy good value in Lidl!)

1) Preheat your oven to 180°c
2) Mix together the vanilla extract, cinnamon and applesauce
3) Mix in all the other ingredients and let it sit for ten minutes
4) Drop the mixture on to a lined baking try and make a thick flat cookie shape

5) Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden (kinda hard to tell due to the colour of the mix but just poke it and if it feels done grab them out!)
6) Cool for 5 minutes then move to a cooling rack.

Warning: these will fill your kitchen with a seriously yummy smell and your house/flat mates will likely come and investigate.

This way you can have biscuits for breakfast everyday and still have it in your head that you're being healthy. 

You're welcome!

(Please let me know if you have any other quick and yummy breakfast bake ideas!)
