I’m on a roll this month! This is another guest spot from my friend living in Germany. She has been experimenting with recipes, especially those that incorporate cookies into breakfast! This is recipe is especially nice because it is flexible. She provided me with a base recipe, but you can add any other tasty ingredients you would like. There are all sorts of different things you can add: craisins, raisins, or other dried fruit, chocolate chips, chopped almonds or walnuts, flax seeds, or sesame seeds. (Personally, I think dried cherries, flax, and walnuts sound fabulous!) You can also substitute half of the flour with whole wheat flour for a slightly less guilty indulgence.
Thanks for the great recipe! These cookies are sure to make breakfast much more exciting. After all, who can’t use a little dessert in the morning? 🙂
The base recipe is:
1 ½ cups brown sugar
2 ½ cups rolled oats
4 cups of flour
1 tsp. Baking soda
1 tsp baking powder together in a bowl
Add 5 eggs and ¼ cup of vegetable oil and mix well.
(You can add small amounts of water to reach the correct consistency.)
These cookies will be baked on a greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about eight to ten minutes.
Mix brown sugar with egg and oil mixture. In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to sugar, egg and oil mixture.
Lastly, add in any other yummy ingredients. My friend used chopped almonds, 1/2 package of craisins, and 1/2 package of chocolate chips. They turn out kind of like granola bar and a muffin mixed together; quite tasty 🙂
Drop cookies onto greased cookie sheet and bake. Then ENJOY!
