Breakfast Cookies or Muffins?

I find that I am either too lazy or in too much of a rush to eat breakfast in the morning. I usually buy something on the way. However, I want to try to eat a bit healthier. I was wondering if breakfast oatmeal cookies are actaully healthy to eat everyday or maybe some sort of breakfast muffin? I would like to find something I can make on Sunday night and last me through the week.

What do you think?

By the way nice forum redesign.

Cookies are not healthy, even if they are oatmeal cookies. They are a snack and one that you should limit at that. For muffins it depends on what kind. Some are not horrible for you while others are loaded with sugar.

Depends on what is in your "cookies." Another thread was looking at home made protein bars...
Drastically limit the sugar, use not just oatmeal, but put in wheat germ, use whole grain flour, nuts, seeds, etc. You end up with a dense, chewy "cookie."

I was thinking of trying this with scones, making a goodness loaded breakfast scone to grab and go. Of course scones have a lot of butter. Maybe biscuits.

I would look at home made granola bars with dried fruits or muffins, there are a lot of recipes for muffins, they are fairly easy to make and you can vary the ingredients so you do get bored with same one every week.

There are specific Breakfast cookie recipes. They often use applesauce and oatmeal or crushed cornflakes in them. I have a couple that I can try to find for you if you like.

Please do post those. This is the first I have heard of anything like that. That could make breakfast time easier around here
