Recipe: Breakfast cookies

I made these cookies a few weeks ago for my son’s birthday party and they were a huge hit with everyone there, no one could believe how (relatively) healthy they were.  I modified it a little more for using at breakfast time.  This is a much better option than conventional granola bars!  These of course would be yummy for snacks, packing in a lunch, etc.

Preheat your oven to 375 F.

  • 1/2 c butter (softened)
  • 1/2 c peanut butter
  • 3/4 c honey
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 c whole wheat flour
  • 2 c oats
  • 1 cup (or more) of add ins of your choice.  I used 1/2 c mini chocolate chips and 1/2 c dried berry mix (cranberries, blueberries and cherries).  You could also add nuts.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, peanut butter, honey, baking powder, baking soda, eggs and vanilla until combined well.  Beat in the flour.  Add the oats and the mix-ins with a spatula.  Drop the dough onto an ungreased baking sheet for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.  Yields roughly 3 dozen cookies.

These cookies don’t spread as they bake, so if you like them more “cookie” shaped and not like a ball, just use a spoon to flatten before cooking.
