FALL is finally here! Well, it has already begun a few days ago, but today is officially the day so, let’s celebrate!
As I am so excited to finally begin the Fall season -way too short for me- I can’t resist to post a picture of the beautiful pumpkins of the garden: so big and beautiful!
I am so happy to see and read how people love Fall, it feels good that everyone doesn’t prefer Summer to any other season. Summer was great, it was the occasion for me to work with fruits (something I didn’t love to do) and to really enjoy that! I was so pleased with every cake -Low-Fat Blueberry Cake for example-, scones, and bars that even if I couldn’t wait for Fall, Summer wasn’t that bad.
But who could resist to these beautiful pumpkins, chestnuts and walnuts 🙂 (from the garden again)
I already have so many ideas about what I want to bake! I really hope I will make everything on my baking list. I don’t know about you but I am so pleased when I checked everything and that turned out even better than expected. And, something I didn’t achieve before, I am now able to do everything on that list AND to do other things unplanned. Such a great feeling. I really don’t face failure well (exclusively baking speaking I think…) so that really means a lot to me.
Anyway, these cookies are directly inspired from my first version of Best Breakfast Cookies, but I made them with applesauce instead of bananas, added some spices and boom! Greater cookies (because I like banana but not as much as applesauce in my cookies). They were so full of Fall flavors, healthy and chewy that I couldn’t turn my back on them.
So good with some melted cookie butter… Wait? I didn’t even have to melt it: just put a spoonful on the cookies while cooling.
What’s Great About Them
Biscoff!! -Cookie spread, but you can use any nut butter or spread that fits you better-
Can be made ahead, that way you just have to wait 15 minutes top to enjoy a warm and healthy cookie
OATS, love love oats
Perfect for breakfast
I am not gonna lie, the recipe is basically like the other, but I would rather enhance a recipe that I love and post it, than posting a recipe I don’t think is worthy enough. And while the first version is more a Summer version, this one is definitely for Fall!
Best breakfast cookies
Biscoff spread, oats and applesauce, this breakfast cookie has everything to warm you up on a cold day!
- 100 g flour 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp
- 87 g oats 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 25 g brown sugar 1 tbsp + 2 tsp
- 25 g granulated sugar 1 tbsp + 2 tsp
- 35 g yogurt 2 tbsp + 2 tsp
- 25 ml milk 1 tbsp + 3 tsp
- 67 g biscoff spread -melted and slightly cooled- 1/4 cup
- 60 g applesauce -homemade if possible- a little less than 1/4 cup or 4 full tbsp
Preheat the oven at 350°F (180°C) and prepare a silicon mat, a parchment paper in a baking mat, or grease a pan if you don’t have any of them.
Whisk the flour, oats, baking powder and cinnamon together. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix the egg, brown and granulated sugars until light and pale.
Add the milk and yogurt and mix slowly, just until incorporated.
Just mix in the Biscoff spread and vanilla.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until just combined.
Add the homemade applesauce and mix with a rubber spatula until just incorporated.
At this step you can put the batter 30 minutes in the fridge to firm it up a little. They will spread enough during baking.
Bake for 12 minutes and let cool before enjoying.
*You definitely should spoon some Biscoff spread while the cookies are cooling!
