My Life of Travels and Adventures: Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast Cookies
These cookies grew from Neil's need to pretty much have breakfast on the go.  Seeing that he can't get up in the morning the first 3/4 times his alarm goes off... There is no time for him to sit down and eat breakfast. 

These cookies are full of oats to help get the day off to a decent start.
I make a double batch and then freeze them in pairs.  Then I pull a couple baggies out each week and breakfast is ready. 

Ingredients:
5 C oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 C sugar
1/4 C butter
1/3 C maple syrup
1/4 C milk
1/2 C dried cranberries (or raisins)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Grind 2 1/2 C of the oats in a food processor until flour-like.
3. Add the baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Mix and set aside.
4. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, vanilla, sugar, butter and milk.  Mix well.
5. Stir in the flour mixture.
6. Add the remaining 2 1/2 C oats and dried cranberries.  Stir until mixed.
7. Scoop about 1 1/2 in balls onto a cookie sheet.
8. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
