Monster Breakfast Cookies

October 13, 2011

So many of us have picky eaters that would rather snack and graze all day long.  If you are worried about their snacks, this is a pretty healthy one.  Pair it with a glass of milk and a piece of fruit and it can easily fill in for a picky eaters breakfast (let’s be honest – maybe even lunch!) or a busy parent on the run!  As per usual, I had my kitchen helper ready to go (as well as sneaking as much raw cookie dough as she possibly could!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/2 cup butter softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups rolled oats
2.5 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
1/2 cup ground flax seed (this can be usually be found in the cheese/yogurt/organic goods fridges)
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 poppy seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 – 1 cup raisins (I used 1/2 a cup of currents plus a few mini chocolate chips!)

Cream butter and brown sugar.  Beat in eggs.  Add in oil, honey, vanilla and then the remainder of the ingredients.

Make 1/4 cup balls out of the dough and place on a cookie sheet.  They don’t spread out very much, so I would pat them down a bit.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Makes approximately 24 large cookies.  Freezes well!
