1/2 Photos of Bakery-Style Breakfast Cookies
Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:
These cookies will make your mouth sing! If you love the flavor thar toasted nuts have, you will love these cookies. They are not a doctored up oatmeal cookie, but like a really good energy bar/cookie. These have been adapted from a bakery called "Tutti's" in Montecito, CA.
