Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast? Why not! These easy Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies are perfect for a sweet and satisfying morning munch. One of my kids favorite breakfast cookies!

You read that right.

Breakfast cookies.

 

I am not above eating desserts for breakfast.  It’s basically the American way.  I mean hello Pop Tarts and Cookie Crisp.

Actually I think it’s a proven fact that a slice of cake tastes best with a cup of coffee at 8 a.m…am I right or am I right?

Don’t answer, I’m right.

 

So today I am not only making it ok to eat cookies for breakfast, I am encouraging it.

Don’t let labels keep you boxed it.

“Breakfast” doesn’t mean “eggs and bacon” or “Cheerios”…I’m pretty sure the literal translation means “eat cookies in the morning”

…don’t argue.

 

So let’s do this.

Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Breakfast Cookies for everyone!

How to Make these Easy Breakfast Cookies

You’ll only need a few ingredients for these yummies.  Which is kinda great because no one needs complicated at 7:00 in the morning.

I love Crescent Rolls and that’s where these cookies begin.  They are available now “seamless” so the possibilities are huge…

If you can’t find the seamless, no worries, just roll out a regular can and don’t separate them.

Unroll the sheet of dough and stretch it out so it’s evenly rectangular.

Mix up some softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and then spread it over your dough.

Sprinkle some mini chocolate chips on top of the cream cheese…

and roll it up.

Wrap your crescent log in cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Or make them the night before…

When you’re ready to bake your cookies, preheat your oven and slice into 1/4″ pieces.

Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet.

When they are done they will be golden brown…

Serve them warm or room temperature.

Good morning to ya!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. Oh my goodness, these are sort of genius!!! Don’t know if I would eat this for breakfast (I think I would end up just eating sweets all day, then!) but these would be perfect for an afternoon snack. Great recipe 😀

  2. Renee

    I’m thinking add some jam/preserves to make it more ‘acceptable’ for bfast and another batch w that new chocolate cream cheese for dessert!

  3. Michelle

    Yum. These look great! I’m wondering if a cinnamon/sugar sprinkle on the cream cheese mixture would be good, since they kind of have the look of a cinnamon roll…may have to try! 🙂

  4. Tracey L

    Great idea; why didn’t I think of this? Recently read about spreading Nutella on crescent rolls then dusting w/ powdered sugar for dessert and that’s been a big hit with the kids. I know this recipe will be too!

  5. I KNEW there was a reason for having chocolate in my breakfast and here it is. My excuse from now on and I have to make these. They look delicious. I imagine they’d all be gone within one breakfast in my household, lol!

    Thanks for sharing,
