If I could, I'd kick off every morning with something sweet. In my college days, I occasionally snacked on a brownie instead of oatmeal before class. Thankfully, I'm wiser -- and healthier -- now. But now I've got this dessert! Ellie Krieger dubs these her "breakfast cookies" -- thanks to the added rolled oats and bran flakes. Try one as a mid-morning snack, paired up with a cup of tea or milk, or as a breakfast on the go.

Watch Ellie prep them in this how-to video. I love how she sneaks in pureed carrot baby food.
