Early Bird Breakfast Cookie

This cookie, loosely based on Milk Bar's "Compost Cookie," sounds crazy at first, but it somehow just works - the coffee adds depth, while the corn flakes give a wonderful crunch, and the oats lend a hearty texture.  The sea salt flakes on top brings everything together.  It's the perfect breakfast - hearty and satiating, with just enough fiber, protein, good fats and of course, a hit of caffeine to get you going!
