the breakfast cookie.

i love a good cookie with my morning coffee. the breakfast cookie is something that my mom passed down, through the ages, if you will. my mom is not a fan of breakfast (although she does love a nice 2 mimosa brunch from time to time), she’s more of a coffee only gal. that is, except when a good breakfast cookie comes her way. a breakfast cookie is a very special thing. it can’t just be any old cookie. the cookie can’t be too sweet, it has to go well with a strong cup of coffee and if at all possible, it should be dunk-able. today i whipped these ones up and i feel like my mom will totes approve. they also happen to be gluten, dairy and sugar free. and they totally do not taste like paste or cardboard. thumbs up.
