I saw my sister make these and couldn't believe how easy it was to make such a great snack/breakfast. So, I asked for the recipe so I could share it with Mr Breakfast!

FYI - You can substitute agave syrup for the corn syrup.

Corn Syrup and high fructose corn syrup are not particularly healthful for people. But American's are addicted to it. It makes my 5 year old son mean, so we've taken all of us off it. I wish we could find a breakfast bar that did not have it in the ingredients. One things to know... steer clear of Kellogg's brands breakfast cereal, if you are trying to avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup. General Mills is pretty great! And, my 13 year old daughter pointed out that almost anything with the Quaker man is pretty healthful.

This is not a breakfast item... this is a cookie. But it was a good cookie. Way too sweet for breakfast.
