Tuesdays At The Table - Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

It's only been one day of class, and I've already been sucked into being the one to spearhead "snack time" for out group. Heeheehee...suckers!  Oh, wait.  Maybe I'm the sucker. Eh, whatever.  I'm using this opportunity to feed the group breakfast cookies.

Fairly quick to make and healthier than a standard cookie!


 Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup golden raisins (or dark chocolate chips)
3 cups Cheerios

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl. Beat in water, egg, and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour until combined. Beat in as much of the rolled oats as you can with mixer. Stir in any remaining rolled oats. Stir in raisins and oat cereal.

Drop dough by large spoonfuls (and I mean BIG) about 3 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

What's cooking in your kitchen?


  1. Can't go wrong with cookies for breakfast! I'm linking up with Banana Walnut Bread. Maybe you can use it for another snack time. :)

  2. Sounds like a great recipe! Thanks for the link party :)

  3. Hi Cole,
    I would love it if someone brought those great cookies to my class. Hope you are having a great week and thanks for hosting!

  4. I think your class is in good hands with you as the official snack provider.

    Thank you for hosting!

  5. I keep hearing about breakfast cookies and then forget to look when I'm at the computer. It's fate I saw this! :)

  6. Haha! I had to laugh when I clicked over to link up and saw your recipe for this week. I made monster cookies (with oatmeal) this week and wrote about how I thought they qualified as breakfast food because of the oatmeal! (Never mind the M&Ms and chocolate chips. Just never mind that!) :)

  7. Great cookie recipe! Today I brought Cheddar Burgers with Caramelized Onions, Bacon and (yummy) Sauce. Thanks for hosting and have a great week!

  8. I made breakfast cookies for the first time last week. They were SO GOOD! I used the recipe from Once a Month Mom.
    Thanks for hosting...I'm linking up Hodgepodge Crock Pot Chicken. :-)


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
