I have always been an early bird. I love waking up to the smell of fresh coffee. There is something deeply comforting about the mornings for me.
During the winter, I set myself up by the window as the gray light streams in, with my coffee and a bowl of oatmeal. I have been watching for my 'little red bird' all winter, but I have not seen him lately. Perhaps it is even too cold out there for him. Maybe he went away for a little while...packed his bags and headed down south!
In the quiet hours of the morning, I gather my thoughts together; map out my plans for the day.
The best days I feel are started with a light, simple breakfast. I save my indulging for the weekends, when the days start a little later...
Flahavan's Irish Oatmeal is a delicious brand of oats. They are so creamy! I add a drizzle of honey and a few slices of fresh berries, but I think these oats would be just as delicious on their own...or mixed in a crunchy cookie batter!!! And so, while I was sitting there that morning enjoying a nice, hot bowl of Irish oatmeal, I developed this recipe for Cornflakes & Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies.Print 13
