If you could eat anything for breakfast (that is healthy) without any guilt, what would it be? I am betting that Breakfast Cookies wouldn’t be on the top of the list (due to the guilt factor). Good news, Dr. Oz invited Oprah Winfrey on to the show to share some recipes from her cookbook called Food, Health and Happiness : 115 On-Point Recipes for Great Meals and a Better Life. Oprah’s Breakfast Cookies Recipe sounds wonderful because she explained to Dr. Oz that she doesn’t add any sugar to the ingredients that isn’t all natural from fruit. The only sugar in the cookies are from apple slices, raisins, mashed banana, and some apple juice. The remaining ingredients are very healthy and the recipe directions are quite easy to follow.

11. Mix both the wet and dry ingredients together. Use a large spoon or your hand. Mix the cookie dough together.
