They're really nice - not just for breakfast...


Makes about 5 1/2 dozen

Margaret Fox's recipe - Breakfast Cookies

Now you have permission to eat cookies for breakfast. All the ingredients are things that you might eat for breakfast anyway. In fact, I`ve been known to eat the Grape Nuts plain, or with milk, before they ever got into the cookie dough. There are lots of ingredients because the idea is to make these a complete breakfast. If you had some citrus, some milk and a handful of these, you`d be in pretty good shape providing you know when to stop reaching into the cookie jar. (Of course, to get your basic two eggs, you`d have to eat 11 dozen cookies.) These cookies are very crunchy, as you might expect from the Grape Nuts. If that bothers you, you could easily substitute a cup of some crunchy flake cereal. I prefer currants to raisins; they seem to distribute the sweetness more evenly throughout the cookies.

1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup regular rolled oats, toasted
1 cup Grape Nuts cereal
1/2 cup peanut butter (optional, but you`d be nuts to leave it out)
2 1/2 cups white flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. toasted wheat germ
1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. oat bran
1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup raisins or currants
1 cup toasted, chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg then the oil and vanilla. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Form into balls between 1 to 3 inches in diameter. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and flatten with a fork. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the cookie. Check the bottoms. Because they are very brown to begin with, you must watch very closely. Remove from the pan and let cool.
