I’m always looking for ways to pack a bunch of nutrition into my preschoolers tiny breakfast/lunch box all while keeping the mess to a minimum. It’s not easy packing whole food plant-based meals sometimes so anything in a muffin, bar or cookie form is perfect. I very rarely use flour or other processed foods so that poses a bit of a challenge when cooking such things. These breakfast “cookies” are made with leftover No-Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal and they are very good! I’m sure you could use regular leftover oatmeal but I don’t think they’d be as good as these.
Recipe from Melomeals!!! What would I do without her!?!?! She has mad skills when it comes to the recreation of leftovers!!
Leftover Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
½ batch ( around 1.5 cups ) No-Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
1 c dry rolled oats
2 carrots, pulsed really well in the food processor
½ c raisins or dried fruit
1/8 t Kal Stevia (optional)
¼ t baking powder
Around ¼ c liquid ( non dairy milk )
Mix well. Taste batter and add more spices if desired as well. Add to parchment paper.
Bake for 20 minutes at 375 – I used an ice cream scoop to make bigger cookies and I found that 20 minutes was the right amount of baking time. The original recipe calls for 11 minutes so try that first if you’re making regular sized cookies.
