Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies with Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate

We love cereal in our house.  My family can eat it all day long.  I remember before I met my husband I ate cereal as my dinner.  Cereal is a quick easy meal.  Sometimes when the kiddos don't want to eat anything else, they will have a bowl of cereal.
Our day gets started pretty early.  It is not everyday that we can sit down to eat breakfast.  Breakfast is a very important meal not to be missed.  Post has a new cereal in it's Honey Bunches of Oats line.  {This is a sponsored post but all opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.}  We were very excited to try the New Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate.  It is Gluten-Free and chocolate.  Did I mention it is chocolate? 
Honey Bunches of Oats is already a favorite in our household.  Something about the good ole honey that got us hooked.  This new flavor is made with real cocoa.  It has the perfect crunch we like. 

I like making breakfast on the go easier for my family.  On Sundays, I meal prep for our week.  Sometimes everyone gets involve.  Breakfast is a meal that is prep.  I have being trying different recipes that we can grab and go, like these Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies.  Breakfast can be a treat.  Who wouldn't love to eat cookies for Breakfast?  These also make a great snack.
