This week for New Food Friday I did another breakfast food. Both me and my husband get sick of eating the same breakfast all the time, so I am trying to find some quick, easy recipes to switch things up. This is a breakfast cookie and although it has quite a bit of sugar and butter, it still has whole grains (whole wheat flour, oats, cheerios) and protein (peanut butter). These turned out great and I will definitely make them again!!
I clipped this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens about 3 years ago.
Double Oat Breakfast Cookies-
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup raisins or chocolate chips ( I used chocolate chips)
3 cups Cheerios
1. Preheat oven to 375. In large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter. Add sugar, baking soda and salt. Beat until combined. Add water, egg and vanilla- beat until combined. Add in flour and oats, beat with mixer as long as possible. Stir in chocolate chips and Cheerios.
2. Drop dough by 1/4 cup about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until browned. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire rack. Makes 24 cookies.
These were AWESOME!! They are totally filling, delicious, and my husband will eat them for breakfast. I am keeping this one in my file for cook again!
Thanks for stopping by!
