Hodge Podge Breakfast Cookies

There is nothing I despise more than paying good money for an ingredient that disappears into the depths of my pantry never to be seen again.

If you are anything like me (flat broke) then you can understand what I’m talking about here and really can’t afford to buy expensive ingredients for just one recipe.

So today, I grabbed a hodge podge of ingredients leftover from my other recipes, threw them into a bowl, added a dash of this, a smidgen of that, and made a delicious breakfast cookie that is super soft and chewy, gargantuan, and is lower in calories and will fill you up more than your standard bowl of cereal and skim milk.

So now, you have no excuse not to make my other recipes 😉

Here’s a rundown of the recipes I used some of the ingredients from:

Pumpkin Pie Parfait = Whole Wheat Oats

Citrus-Seed Shortbread Cookie Cups=Poppy Seeds

Nuts, Berries, Bubbles, and Truffles =Dried Cranberries

Pig Pickin’ Cake Balls=Dried Pineapple

Fig-nomenal Cheese Date Thumbprint Crackers=
Pitted Dates

Egg White Rockefeller=Nutmeg

Cinnamon & Coriander Spiced
Steak & Spinach Salad=

Peach & Proscuitto Flatbread=Whole Wheat Flour

Cadbury CHOCOLATE Creme Egg Martini=
Unsweetened (Vanilla) Almond Milk

Low Calorie Strawberry Limeades=Liquid Stevia Drops

This is the perfect recipe to use for any leftover ingredients you have in your pantry…got nuts? Throw them in! Unsweetened coconut? Sure! Chocolate chips? Absolutely!

Not only will your kids absolutely devour these *healthy* breakfast cookies, but they are super easy to make for them ahead of time as well. I made two batches so now the hubs and I have breakfast made for the rest of the week!

A to the men.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Add all ingredients except chocolate chips to a bowl and stir thoroughly until well combined and oats slightly soak up the liquid ingredients.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and, using the tip of your spatula or spoon, separate the dough into four equal sections.
  • Scoop out each section and drop onto a non-stick or parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Gently press and smooth the dough until it is in the desired shape.
  • Bake for 20-25 mins or until golden brown.
  • Let cool, but these are best when eaten a little warm.
  • Enjoy!

    These look so good AND super Healthy! I have been on the hunt for a breakfast cookie – granola bar type recipe for some time and might just have to give these a try! Can you sub the stevia for agave? Prob, right?

      Thanks! These are so good, I’ve eaten two and a half today. *So glad* they are healthy! Yes, you could absolutely sub with more agave for sure, but it would add calories to it. I still haven’t tried Kale chips…they scare me :/

  • Hodgepodge recipes are the best! This one sounds SUPER – I am all about cookies so if you give me one that’s HUGE and healthy enough to eat at breakfast I will be a happy girl alllll day long :).

I’ve been known to read christmas cookie magazines in the summer for inspiration! I’ve spent the last half a hour reading your posts and recipes! I love your blog! I also similar to you have this weird pumpkin obsession haha! I cant wait to try the pumpkin parfait (sorry thats unrelated to the above post). Can’t wait to keep reading your blog in the future! 🙂
