Rise and Shine Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Total Time

These are relatively healthy for a cookie...not too sweet and with some extra fiber they make a nice breakfast treat. They are best eaten fresh and hot out of the oven but still taste good the next day. Craisins or raisins can be added for variety.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine brown sugar, egg and vegetable oil. Stir until well combined. Stir in flour mixture, oats and wheat germ (or flax seed).
  3. Drop by tablespoonfuls on baking sheet. Flatten slightly with glass (not too much if you like the centers a little soft). Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

I make these all the time. It's a healthy treat for my kids. The only thing is I add a bit of water or extra oil(about a tbsp) as I find them a bit dry.

These can easily become addicting. After the first one, I had to eat 2 more!! The downside is that they were too dry and hard to roll into a ball to drop on cookie sheet. I guess it needs a little more fluid, as jennythecook said in her review. I used the bottom of a glass to flatten them out. Made for PAC Spring 2011.

These are the best and we enjoy them for breakfast. I would like to try using applesauce in place of some of the oil and will report the results when I do. Also, I would recommend cutting back on the salt, especially if you are using sea salt.
