I love breakfast.
Our normal breakfast rotation includes yogurt bowls and bagel sandwiches.
These are great breakfast options for us because they are fast and filling!
As far as the yogurt bowl goes, it is as easy as dumping plain Greek yogurt, granola/trail mix, and a drizzle of honey into a bowl.
Bagel sandwiches are a WEE more labor intensive, but so worth it.
Breakfast Bagel Sandwich
- 1 bagel, sliced (I prefer cinnamon-raisin, but any flavor will do!)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 slices thick cut bacon
- 1 slice cheddar or American cheese
- 1 Tbsp butter
- Fry up 2 slices of bacon.
- In a small bowl, whisk two eggs together and season with salt and pepper.
- Once bacon and tender crisp, place on a paper towel to dry.
- Toast bagel.
- Turn the stove top heat down to low and scramble eggs, but try to keep them in the shape of a circle.
- Once eggs are almost done, place cheese slice on top of the eggs, turn the heat off, and cover skillet for 1 minute or so.
- While cheese is melting, butter toasted bagel.
- Place cheesy eggs and bacon on bagel half and top with remaining bagel half to make a sandwich.
- Serve warm with a big cuppa joe!
Oh, and try to not burn your bagel like me :(
Now on to the cookies!
I felt it appropriate to post these in a breakfast-themed post because my mom used to make these for us for breakfast growing up.
She claims it was the only way we would eat oatmeal :)
These cookies are easy, fast, and SO delicious. I have tweaked my mom's recipe just a tad, but they are still the perfect breakfast treat! Pour a tall glass of milk and enjoy!
Chocolate Oatmeal No-Bakies
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 3 1/2 cups whole rolled oats
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Place 1 large sheet of foil on the counter top.
- In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat.
- Add sugar, milk, cocoa powder, and cinnamon to pot and bring to a boil.
- Let mixture boil, while whisking, for 2 minutes.
- Remove pot from heat and whisk in peanut butter. Stir until smooth.
- Stir in oats and vanilla extract.
- Working quickly, drop spoonfuls of the oat mixture onto foil sheet.

YOU ARE LOVED!!!
