We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Meal, cornmeal, oatmeal…it makes sense. So, I came up with an easy breakfast cookie using these ingredients to help jump start your day.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour (or all-purpose if you don’t have ww)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon/nutmeg mixture (or whichever one you have)
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with some parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, cornmeal, spices and baking powder and set aside.
