Its probably just me, but I would not eat those for breakfast. The only sugars I let my kids or me have for breakfast would be from fruits or on the rare occasion, syrup.

What do you think?

By the way nice forum redesign.
there are plenty of healthy muffin recipes out there. i use splenda instead of sugar, sub some oil for applesauce, add some sort of fruit. blueberries, or what ever. even thinly sliced apples. they taste very good and i think are good for you

You're kidding right? No sugar at all? What kind of monster are you????

Each cookie has about 16 calories from sugar (thats on the high end) took me a while to find the nutritional breakdown. We used to make these for a breakfast snack when I worked in before school care.

lol you guys are funny.
Yes I wanted to make healthy breakfast cookies with oatmeal and some edible grain. I just wanted some opinion if this is actaully healthy. I would rather go this root then eat nothing at all in the mornings. I wasn't sure if a cookie could actually be healthy. In any case I have given up sugar so I won't mind the taste. After years of not eatting sugar everyday, everything taste sweet. I don't evern use the sugar substitutes that would be cheating. LoL.
Thanks I gonna give this a try and see how it works out.

I usually go for cereals in the morning. But if were to choose cookies or muffin, I'd choose the latter. :)

Lightbulb It really depends...

Yah they were all right..it really depends there are some cookies that are baked from nutritious ingredients while other muffins are not and vise versa.. however for me it is muffins that is much healthier than the cookies...
You can consider either of the following:
1. peanut butter muffins (one of my favorite )
2. banana muffins (the smell was so great i love this)
3. Bran muffins

hohoho i really love all of these...

but cookies are easier on the go... you can stash them in a bag and they hold up well.
How about a cracker recipe with whole grains and seeds?
