Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast Cookies
Yes folks, you read right -- breakfast. cookie. Cue the excited child that still lives inside you that has always wanted to eat dessert first. These may not be your typical chocolate chip cookie but they definitely satisfy in the same way. These cookies were conceived on an average morning where I lounged about in my pajamas until too late and was too lazy to go to the store but needed to scratch my itch to bake something. Ergo, the breakfast cookie. These are not only healthy, but tasty and will keep you full for an entire morning of whatever keeps you running around like the rest of us. They are quick, chewy and sweet!

1/2 cup regular oats
6 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1/4 cup Kashi cereal
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup pureed peaches, apricots, pears, plums or pumpkin (hint: baby food works for this)
1 egg
2 tablespoons raisins
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
A pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Chop raisins into small pieces and set aside. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until well combined. Line a large baking sheet with nonstick foil and spoon batter into evenly spaced dollops on the baking sheet. Batter should form eight to ten cookies. Bake in the oven for 12 to 14 minutes until the tops of the cookies are just slightly crispy and allow to cool on a wire rack for fifteen minutes. Enjoy!
