Breakfast Cookies

Introduction

My sister told me about these. The recipe is easy and easily modified to fit what you have in the pantry. The ingredients listed here are what I used. I'm sure it will change in the future based on what I have in the house. They make a great on-the-go breakfast.

Feel free to play around with the puree, the dried fruit, the cereal, and nuts if you like them.

Ingredients

    1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp nutmeg

    2 tbsp unsalted butter
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    3 tbsp granulated sugar
    1 egg
    1/4 cup applesauce (or any carrot puree, squash, banana, etc)
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 cup oats
    1/2 flake cereal like Bran Flakes or Honey Bunches of Oats
    1/3 cup dried cranberries

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine butter, oil and sugars with stand mixer until sugars are dissolved and mixture is like in color (about a minute). Add egg, puree/applesauce, and vanilla and beat for about 30 seconds. Add flour, baking soda, and spices, beat another 30 seconds to mix. Add oats, flakes, dried fruit (and any nuts) and mix together.

Place balls on cookie sheet (I use a 1 1/2 tbsp cookie scoop) and flatten with your hand or a spatula. This is important for them to bake right. Bake for 12 minutes. Cookies will be soft and very fragrant.

My cookie scoop made 16 cookies. The original recipe uses 3 to 4 tbsp for each cookie and makes 12.
