Carrot Cherry Breakfast Cookies

 

I love the idea of a cookie for breakfast Рand so do my kids.  Offering them a nutritional vitamin packed breakfast in a convenient to eat cookie is very appealing.  These cookies use whole wheat flour, oats, carrots and dried cherries along with maple syrup for some added sweetness to make this a delicious and handy breakfast all in one.
