I put the dry ingredients into baggies and store several baggies in the cupboard. All I have to do in the morning is add the wet ingredients and bake while I am doing my animal chores and I have an amazingly filling breakfast.
- 1⁄3 cup oatmeal
- 1 tablespoon raisins
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1⁄3 cup non-fat powdered milk
- 1⁄4 cup applesauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon Splenda granular
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Spray cookie sheet with baking spray.
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Spoon 1 large mound on the baking sheet.
- Bake 15-20 minutes.
A thousand thanks for this recipe. I love it! I love having the dry ingredients pre packaged. It makes the mornings a snap! The best thing about this recipe is how many easy modifications there are (try adding half a smashed banana and some walnuts. OMG) They are very hard to mess up and I eat them almost every day! Love em!
I think these are fantastic, but if you are looking for something sweet (like a normal cookie), these aren't for you. They do taste like a good bowl of oatmeal, but in cookie form. Even though I like oatmeal, it never sounds appealing to me for breakfast. Since it is healthy, I keep trying to find recipes that use oatmeal, are still healthy, and reasonably yummy. This is it!
BTW - I used brown sugar instead of Splenda and craisins instead of raisins.
These breakfast cookies were OK, but I'll probably go back to the instant oatmeal cookie instead. When they were fresh and cooled overnight, I could really taste the powdered milk (we just overcame dairy intolerance, so I can use a little, so I'm probably just very sensitive to the taste), but it got better the second day. However, that said, I think I've got some even yummier ideas to bring back to that recipe: cutting the sugar waaay back in the homemade instant oatmeal, using baking soda instead of baking powder (since I can taste that too, and it increases with age), and using more cinnamon! MmMmm ... so this recipe is a delicious start. Use this one if you like the extra protein from the powdered milk, and use the other recipe if you have issues with dairy.
