COOKIES FOR BREAKFAST ??
Hi All, hope you have been able to take advantage of the beautiful fall
weather we, in New England, have been having. Wherever you are, know it
is the time of year to finish outside work, be it the yard, getting the garden
cleaned up, or pruning shrubs, the weather has been perfect.
The recipes I have for you today are loved by most everyone. The first is a
cookie that can be eaten for breakfast. The ingredients are good for you ,
your child or grandchild, and includes PROTEIN, which we need for energy.
Double Oat Breakfast Cookie
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup peanut butter, creamy
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. baking SODA
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup of water
1 Tbsp. vanilla
In a large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter.
Add sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat to combine, scrapping
sides of bowl. Beat in water, egg, and vanilla till combined.
1 1/2 cups flour [ I put 3/4 white wheat, 3/4 all-purpose flour]
1 cup ROLLED Oats [ not quick]
1 cup raisins and 1/2 cup milk choc bits [ 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts can be
added in place of raisins if raisins are not to the child's liking]
3 cups oat cereal [ Cheerios]
Add flour to wet ingredients. Beat in as much of the rolled oats
as you can with the mixer. Stir in remaining oats by hand. Stir in raisins
choc. bits, nuts, and oat cereal.
Drop by 1/4 cup size, 3 inches apart onto UN GREASED cookie
sheet. Flatten slightly. Bake at 375* for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool 5 minutes.[ Kids like these with milk ]
This recipe is published in a 2008 issue of BHG.
