Cranberry Almond Breakfast Cookies

Last week I complained told you about my energy crisis
I am the first one to tell you that I am not always the best at follow through especially when it comes to stuff about me. 

Well. I actually followed through. 

I had recipe that I wanted to share with you.

I have seen several versions of breakfast cookies on pinterest but none of them hit me quite right. So I decided to take bits and pieces from each and mash them up together to create these little beauties...

Cranberry Almond Breakfast Cookies 


1/2 c applesauce
1/2 c of peanut butter
1/2 c of rolled oats
1/4 tsp cinnamon 
1 tsp of vanilla 
1/4 c dried cranberries 
1/4 chopped raw almonds 
pinch of salt
1 packet of splenda 

Preheat oven to 350.
Combine apple sauce and peanut butter. 
Add oats and all other ingredients. 
Mix until combined. Shape into cookies on a foil lined baking sheet. 
Bake for 12-14 minutes. 

yep, that easy. yep, that yummy. 

I also wanted to show yall two of the other quick after school snacks I am trying … with heavy influence from miss jess and her Hungry Girl post
