These breakfast cookies are just as good as a big bowl of oatmeal, just as healthy, and much quicker. They can be taken with you to have with coffee mid-morning if you're not a breakfast person. Children like the idea of having a big cookie for breakfast to go with milk or hot chocolate. They are super-easy to make too.

Ingredients:

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and add corn oil and melted butter. Mix until nice and thick. Add applesauce, cinnamon, and half the cake mix. Stir the cake mix in well, then add the other half box of cake mix and stir that in. Add raisins and nuts, if using. Mix everything together. Stir in the oatmeal. The dough is going to be very thick.

If it seems too thick to work with, add 2 Tbsp. applesauce or more. Some oatmeal takes up a lot more moisture than others. Cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about an hour.

I love using parchment paper, and I can use it over and over while I'm baking in one session. That's usually about 8 pans of cookies, then I throw it away. It's done its job very well.

For these breakfast cookies, I use about 2/3 cup of dough for each and with lightly floured hands, pat them out to almost an inch thick and 4 inches around or a little more.

They don't spread much. I bake them at 350 degrees F for about 15-20 minutes. The cookies are going to still be pretty soft even after they've cooled on a wire rack. Do not allow them to over-brown. When completely cool, place them in an airtight container and refrigerate.

When ready to eat or wrap to take with you, place one in the microwave for about 30 seconds at full power. I wrap it in a paper towel, and it's ready to eat right from the paper or pop it into a little plastic bag.

The same dough works just fine for regular-sized cookies. Make them whatever size you like, bake them on parchment at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Servings: Lots
Time:Less than 10 Minutes Preparation Time
15-20 Minutes Cooking Time

Source: I was in a hurry to get all the cookies baked one day, and decided to make some extra-large ones. The children loved them for breakfast and told me it was the same thing as eating a bowl of oatmeal. I had to agree. We've been making Oatmeal-Raisin Breakfast Cookies ever since.
