Why Should You Include Cookies in Your Breakfast Menu?

Want a quick and tasty breakfast? I would suggest giving cookies a go! Do you want to know why? Then stick to the end of this article to find out.

It is said by almost everyone that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That’s why we should have something full of all the necessary nutrients like carbs, proteins, vitamins, etc. This is why, whenever we talk about breakfast, the typical breakfast items like toast, eggs, bacon, waffles, and pancakes with syrup come to our mind. Any of us wouldn’t think of cookies as an ideal breakfast item.

Now many of you might debate that cookies, a sugary concoction as breakfast, are an unhealthy option. But I want to remind you all the “healthy” options we have are not that healthy. Just think about how much sugar we usually consume in our regular breakfast items like pancakes and syrup, waffles, cereals, etc. Let me tell you why cookies can be a healthy and quick breakfast option for you. Just read until the end to find out your answers.

#1. Cookies Can Also Be a Healthy Option

Just because cookies are made of sugar, wheat, butter, and other such ingredients, which can be deemed unhealthy, doesn’t make them unhealthy. They become much healthier if I can make them at home. And those who are vegetarian or have some sort of allergy to dairy can opt for Vegan Shortbread Cookies. They can be found in any superstore, or there are tons of recipes on the internet. Do check them out. Moreover, there are many combinations of cookies with a beverage that can make them healthier and tastier at the same time.

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with a Cup of Brewed Coffee

My first suggested combo is browned butter chocolate chip cookies with a cup of brewed coffee. It’s a simple combo that can be both bought at a cafe or made at home too. Because chocolate chip cookies are such a classic dessert that is begging forever to be a member of our breakfast menu. Yes, there is sugar in them, but there is also sugar in that bowl of cereal that you devour without any guilt every morning. And it not only just has chocolate and sugar; it also has some traditional breakfast elements like eggs, butter, and wheat. I don’t think after this, I need to convince you any more of the fact it’s a power-packed breakfast item.

However, do you want to elevate the flavor of your cookie to the next level? Then pour a cup of hot brewed coffee. Dunk that chocolate deliciousness in the pool of bitterness, then take a bite. I can assure you, you`ll taste heaven. Or you can try another trick after pouring that hot cup of coffee: keep the cookie over the rim of your cup for 30 seconds. Then the steam from your coffee will warm and soften your cookie while infusing it with a small kick of coffee flavor.

Lemon Bar Cookies with Cappuccino made with Oat Milk

This one might be a bit hard to make at home. So I would suggest that you get them from a bakery and check on time if they are available or not in the bakery. As it’s a specialty in many bakeries, they tend to run out. And if going to talk about the taste, I can’t emphasize how amazing the citrus and sweet flavor with a tender crust tastes! You’ll have to taste it to believe it!

And the perfect drink for this to go with this sweet and sour cookie deliciousness would be an oaty cappuccino. The cappuccino should be prepared traditionally with 8 oz. portion because that is the perfect amount of coffee to complete your meal. Moreover, unlike the traditional cow milk, oat milk doesn’t give the heaviness. Rather it provides a pleasant flavor and an incredible texture.

#2. Cookies Can Be a Quick Breakfast option

In the morning, while having breakfast, we’re generally in a hurry. Either we’re leaving for work or our classes. And in this moment of rush, we don’t want to do anything that will take a lot of time to prepare, a lot of time to eat, or can be messy.

That’s where cookies can come into the picture. Because cookies are easy to make and can be stored for a long period, you can have them every morning without the hassle of making them. Also, as cookies are almost bite-size, you can take them on the go, which will be easy and save a lot of time.

#3. Cookies Can Be Made Easily and Stored for a Longer period

Typical breakfast such as pancakes, waffles, bacon and egg, even cereal and milk takes time and effort to prepare. But when it comes to cookies, they can be prepared with some basic ingredients pretty easily. Yes, the day you’ll make them, it will take a lot of effort, but it will be a weekly or monthly affair. Because after making them once, you can store them in a container and have them every morning. Long storage life is one of the biggest advantages of cookies. Other breakfast items like pancakes, waffles, bacon, eggs, etc., can be stored or frozen for a day or two, but cookies can be stored for months.

So, in the end, I would say cookies as breakfast every day might be a little bit unhealthy, especially for the children, but for adults who have a really busy life, cookies can be a really quick, tasty, and near healthy breakfast option. I hope this article will encourage you to ignore all the preset rules regarding what you should have for breakfast and what you should not have. Let the child within you live again who’s trapped in there somewhere!
