Breakfast Cookie Dough Morning Oatmeal ~ quick 'n' easy, no cooking required!


When I make a batch of my breakfast cookies, I always like eat some of the 'dough', straight from the bowl.  It tastes so good and since it has to sit there 10 minutes before going into the oven, I just have to sneak a bite...or two.  When I was making a batch the other morning, I kept eating it because I hadn't had any breakfast yet.  That's when it hit me ~ why not just make it like that for a quick, no-cook breakfast??  Sometimes, I can't see the forest for the trees.  :)

Breakfast Cookie Dough Morning Oatmeal ~ no cooking required!
serves one

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal (old fashioned or quick, not instant)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 banana, diced
  • 1 Tbsp raisins (or dried cranberries)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped walnuts (or nut of choice)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
 Optional add-ins ~
  • chia or flax seeds ~ to sprinkle on
  • carob or chocolate chips ~ for a special treat
  • cocoa powder ~ to stir in for a hit of chocolate flavor (use with a sweetener)
  • maple syrup or honey ~ to drizzle on
  • milk of choice ~ for pouring over when serving
  • sliced fruit of choice ~ for extra fruitiness
Directions 
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and let the breakfast cookie dough sit for 10 minutes while you go about your morning routine.  Enjoy as is or get creative with the optional add-ins.  Some days I add milk, other days I add more fruit ~ all depends on my mood.  :)

    1. Hi Katherine!

      Don't know why I never really thought about it before. Now I can knock off breakfast cookie baking & eating breakfast at the same time & right out of the same bowl. Less washing up - yeah!! teehee :)
