Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Just calling it a breakfast cookie makes me feel like I’m breaking the rules. But then I remember what these “cookies” are actually made up of and the guilt diminishes when I realize they’re an awesomely nutritious breakfast! I kind of like living on the wild side, so I try not to remember that when I’m eating my breakfast cookie.
