Autumn Harvest Breakfast Cookies

Blah, blah, blah, bloom, blah, blah, blah.

That about sums up how I’m feeling on this glorious day.


Have y’all ever had one of those days where you are so exhausted you can barely keep your eyes open and all you want to do is curl up in your bed and fall asleep with your kittles cattles?

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh…I’m so feeling that way today.

I hate when days like these come about…but then again I love them…but then again I hate them…but then again I love them and the flip flopping goes on and on and on. I love them because it really does give me the best excuse to do nothing but stuff my face full of air popped popcorn sprinkled in yummy seasonings all the while watching Supernatural and wishing I could shake the hand of Dean Winchester’s mom for bringing such a beautiful creature into this world.

Then I hate these days because I feel so doggone worthless, and I’ve got a zillion and one things on my to do list yet our king size bed is just so coooomfy, and I can’t seem to muster up the energy to uncurl myself from the sheets, let alone crawl out of bed and brush my teeth and act like a civilized adult who is going out of town for the weekend.

When I finally was able to crawl out of bed, I couldn’t stay awake, and I’m not even kidding you I have fallen asleep no less than three times this morning all while trying to accomplish the simplest of mundane tasks…which really consisted of nothing more than walking down the stairs so my Keurig could make me a cup of pumpkin spice coffee and shoving one of these autumn harvest breakfast cookies down my throat.

Ugh, sometimes I can’t even deal with myself and how annoying I am. I really can’t imagine what my husband sees in me sometimes, especially on days like this. Lucky for me though, he seems to understand my mood because he has quietly finished putting away the laundry AND vacuumed the floor while I have sat here in bed pretending to write my post when all I’ve actually been doing is stalking people on Facebook and catching up on celebrity gossip.

Hmmm…I think I could get used to this.

Another great thing about today?

It is the perfect excuse to eat cookies for breakfast.

This recipe is the fall version of the Hodge Podge Breakfast Cookies I made for y’all back in May (or June, whatever), and they are still chocked full of yummy healthy ingredients. The hubs has been begging for them for weeks and since he is absolutely amazing and humble and kind and gorgeous and without a doubt the yin to my yang, I have finally gotten around to making them for him but this time I created a flavor more suitable for fall…and what resulted was one of the most delicious and healthiest cookies you will ever eat.

And you don’t have to feel guilty about it one bit  🙂

    I love your blog, repeat, LOVE! I made your breakfast cookies last week and they were a huge hit with my little ones and now I am here getting the ingredients down to try this version! They were so delish! I had to giggle at your Dean comment, my hubby and I are big Supernatural fans and I too have a crush on Dean! Thanks for being awesome 🙂
