Here at Kids Activities Blog, we are big eaters of breakfast for dinner.
We are just a wild and crazy bunch.
This recipe is from my grandmother who didn’t like many sweets. It was one of the rare desserts she made except for her infamous garbanzo taffy which will NOT be appearing in a future recipe post. Because these oatmeal cookies aren’t very sweet, my family crumbled them up, poured milk over them, and ate them like breakfast cereal.
Breakfast Cookie Recipe:
- 1 cup of butter (I substitute 1/2 cup of applesauce for 1/2 cup of the butter)
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup of milk
- 1 cup sugar (you can even decrease this slightly if you are using the applesauce above)
- 1 t baking soda
- 2 cups of flour
- 2 cups oatmeal
- 1 cup walnuts (I leave out the nuts and just increase the oatmeal by 1/2 cup)
- 1 cup of raisins
Soften/melt the butter and stir together the wet ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients and then fold everything together just enough so that everything is combined. It will be the consistency of wet cement…I am serious.
Drop onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 until brown. For me this was about 10 minutes.
They are a cake-y consistency when baked which is why you will want to immediately crumble them warm from the oven into a bowl and get some cold milk…
Yep, you definitely need to eat cookies for breakfast!
This oatmeal breakfast cookie recipe is also something that the boys have access to for snacks. They prefer to eat them as cookies and by the handful.
