Breakfast cookies for busy mornings and busy students

For many McGill students, weekday breakfasts do not exist; mornings entail waking up and heading right out the door to class. Students might dream of bacon, eggs, and luscious stacks of pancakes, but sadly, often wind up settling for a packaged and processed bar from the bottom of their backpacks.
