I love oatmeal cookies for breakfast so when I discovered this recipe for Oatmeal Ice Box Cookies I knew I had a winner. Perfect to have a warm cookie for breakfast because the dough is ready to go!
Yes, I believe cookies, especially oatmeal cookies are legit breakfast food!
Confession time – I buy the break apart cookies at the grocery store in the refrigerator section. They are so good and so easy. No mess to make the dough, make only as many as you want…..which is kind of funny for me to say because I ALWAYS bake all of them. But I suppose if you were a person with will power you could only bake a few.
This recipe is super easy like that because you roll the dough, put it in wax paper and pop it in the fridge. Then when ready to bake you slice off the cookies!
