Cookies- what can't they do?

Happy Sunday everyone!
Now, it's sort of a known thing around the blog-o-sphere to have pancakes on Sunday, but sometimes I'm just not feeling them.
Sometimes I'm feeling cookies:
 Soft and chewy cookies with a hint of peanut butter flavour and the lovely tartness of rhubarb, sweetened perfectly by dried fruit. Yep, these were good cookies!

Ok well, bye friends!
What? You want something else? Boy, you guys are demanding! Well, I guess I could give you the recipe ;)

Soft Muesli Cookies with Rhubarb
3/4 cup muesli
1/3 stick of rhubarb, diced
1/2 cup milk (I used rice milk)
1 tablespoon peanut butter (or any nut butter of choice)
Sprinkle of chia seeds

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Place the muesli, rhubarb and chia seeds in a small bowl and mix to combine:
3. Place the rice milk and peanut butter in a small bowl and microwave for 1 minute, lightly stir (not to fully combine) then pour onto muesli and rub in with your fingers.
 4. It will probably seem quite liquidy, but if you let it sit for a few minutes it will thicken and absorb the liquid. In the meantime you could make a smoothie:

 A delicious green smoothie made with 1 chopped frozen banana, a handful of frozen mango, 2 big handfuls of spinach, 3 big spoons of greek yoghurt and 1/2 a cup of water- all whazzed up in a blender until smooth:
 Leave in freezer until required.
 5. After the 'cookie dough' has sat for a bit, form into balls (whatever size you want- I went with two big cookies) and place on baking tray:
 6. Bake for 15 mins, or until cookies are golden and hard on top:
 7. Leave to cool on a cooling rack for 5 mins so the cookies harden and stay together.
8. EAT!
 I absolutely love the bright colours of this breakfast! The rhubarb went soft and deliciously tangy and the peanut butter gave these cookies a beautiful flavour.
 Very filling, very delicious, very good for you- my three ticks of approval!

 Feeling like some cookies for brekky now?

Even if you don't have any rhubarb, sub in anything else you'd like- blueberries, apple, banana- anything will work :)

Do you ever have cookies for breakfast?
Do you celebrate pancake Sunday?
Do you like rhubarb?

That's all from me today folks! Always remember to look after your body with yummy, nutritious foods:)
Bye! :D
