Nutritious breakfast cookie recipes can be hit or miss on the flavor front. This one is simple and tastes mildly of bran. It’s a very flexible base to work with. Add in chopped apples or ripe pears for little bites of flavor. Make it more of a meal by adding a few tablespoons of chopped nuts. For a special treat, add a few tablespoons of dark chocolate chips.
