Cookies for Breakfast - Why Not! #BrunchWeek

Cookies for Breakfast - Why Not! #BrunchWeek

Ahhh – Brunch Week is hitting the home stretch – we’ve got only a couple days until the #BrunchWeek giveaway (have you entered yet?  Do you remember these prizes?? Hurry!!!) and I’ve got a recipe that will have you going “Aly – have you gone mad??”

Yes – you heard me right – I said cookies for breakfast.  Now – before you bite my head off – hear me out on the Breakfast Cookie argument.  Ever have a morning when you are racing around like mad with a bizillion things to do and remember “Shoot – I forgot to get breakfast!” and you stop at the local fast food place or D&D or ‘bucks and grab one of their breakfast items.  Do you know how many calories are in that item?
