When I lived in Switzerland it was common to have muesli for breakfast. Muesli seemingly is a Swiss invention, which was introduced around 1900 by doctor Maximilian Bircher-Benner as a healthy meal for patients of his hospital. The idea was simple mix rolled oats with dried fruits, fresh fruits and add some dairy – this meal gives an energy boost and provides quite healthy start into day, without to much sugery goodness.
Today when I needed a comfort and energy boost I decided to give muesli a brand new twist. And do tell what is better that cookies for breakfast? Especially healthy cookies – no sugar, no fat just healthy
So I reached to my old trusty method of grinding rolled oats to get nice oat flour which I use as base for pancakes just to skip on white flour which seem not to be very nutritious. Skipped on fat as well, as seriously no need of fat in the cookies and added a handful of chopped dried fruits and some dark chocolate.
Recipe as always is simple and straight forward, using ingredients most of us have handy home. From begining till serving recipe is ready in about 25 minutes, which isn’t bad at all for brekkie.
So what do you reckon? Cookies for brekkie? you are worth it 😉
Morning Glory Muesli Cookies
1/2 cup rolled oats, grinded (I use old coffee grinder)
1 spoon brown sugar
1/2 tea spoon baking soda
1/2 small cup of natural yogurt
handful of dry fruits, chopped
30g dark chocolate, chopped
In a bowl mix together oats, egg, yogurt, sugar and soda. If batter’s too loose add more oats or flour. Add chopped fruits and chocolate. Mix well. Spoon out on the baking tray. Bake until nice and golden in 200C (probably about 15 mins, but it’s depending from the oven)
