Dark Chocolate Walnut Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

GOOD MORNING!

The last time I posted a cookie recipe, I was up at midnight writing. This time I’m up at six am on a Sunday morning…What has driven me to wake up at such a time? Bootcamp! I have to give myself props (everyone has to pat themselves on the back once in a while.) Lately, I don’t the hit snooze button a billion times or change my mind about getting up. I think the July Fitness Challenge has helped a lot with motivation. Speaking of (jumping offtrack)…*I should probably start planning the August one!* I like to get up about two hours before any workout. I need my time to wake up with coffee and have a little breakfast. While I sit here sipping coffee and eating my strawberries & cream oatmeal, I’ll blog about my Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies. & please excuse my morning brain and excessive blabbing.
