    Did you mean for it to read 1/4C peanut butter and nuts? Seems like a lot. Curious? Also is this for one serving?

    I have made these breakfast cookies twice and they are delicious. Perfect make-ahead breakfast. I’m a BLE-er and this fits perfectly with my batch food prep.


    Katie – what’s the count on this for BLE weight loss plan for women?

  5. Do you have nutrition information?

    • Nope, sorry Sara. I’m in more of an Intuitive Eating camp these days, and trying not to care about that sort of thing. You can always put the ingredients into an app like My Fitness Pal to figure it out, the ingredients are pretty simple. Also, these cookies are versatile and it will depend on what ingredients you decide to use.

    Do you cook the quinoa and oats first? Or put in raw? Thank you for an answer.

  20. It says to make 4 rounds… but it your notes you say you eat “all” 3 for a filling breakfast….

    • Katie Gates

      ha, oops. Sometimes I make 3, sometimes I make 4. I’d say make as many as you want and eat as many as you want! I’ll edit the recipe to avoid confusion, thanks for pointing that out Jen.
