I found this recipe, and can't wait to try them. This recipe sounds seriously good. Anyone have anything else similar?

Bacon, Cereal, and Orange Juice Breakfast Cookies

- makes 12 big cookies -

Adapted from Cookies by Natalie Hartanov Haughton

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

2 tablespoons thawed frozen orange juice concentrate

1 tablespoon grated orange peel

1 1/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

6 strips bacon or veggie bacon, cooked very crisp, drained and crumbled (I used veggie bacon and it worked just fine)

1/2 cup Grape-Nuts

Procedure

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In a medium bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg, orange juice concentrate and peel, until light and fluffy. Add flour and baking powder, beating until well blended.

3. Stir in bacon and cereal, stirring only until incorporated.

4. Using an ice cream scoop (I used a big one), drop 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

5. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are golden. Remove cookies from sheets while still warm and cool on racks.

So you can add the OJ and zest to that recipe, too.

How well do these freeze?

I thought all cookies were suitable for breakfast.

I'll have to think about these...

Like fori, I thought cookies WERE a breakfast food. Especially oatmeal raisin, they seem so like a "whole grain goodness" kind of thing. (grin)

I'd like either of those, without the bacon. I just can't go there, I'm afraid. I do like these, although they are inordinately healthy (for a cookie, at least). I didn't have sucanat, so I just used brown sugar.

Fruit Nut & Oat Cookies
Ingredients
Olive oil cooking spray
3/4 cup of white whole-wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 cup of Sucanat
6 tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 large egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups of rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened dried fruit of your choice (think raisins, prunes, cherries, etc.)
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
Directions
Preheat oven to 375 and lightly spray two baking sheets with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine Sucanat, oil, applesauce, egg whites, and vanilla and mix with a hand blender combined. Add flour mixture and mix well until just combined. Stir in oats, fruit, and nuts.

Drop 2 tbsp-sized balls of dough onto the baking sheet. Bake for about twelve minutes or until lightly golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!

Makes 24 cookies.

Ashley likes these, I can even eat them in spite of the bananas, because there are enough other things going on there. The 1/4 cup is way, way too big, though, the cookies spread into giant breakfast cookies.

Breakfast Cookies

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup applesauce
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose or 3/4 cup all-purpose and 3/4 cup whole wheat)
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
2 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant)
1 cup raisins (or dried cranberries, or chocolate chips)

Preheat the oven to 350°.
With an electric mixer, beat the peanut butter and applesauce until combined. Beat in the brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla, beating until mixed. Stir in the bananas, baking soda and salt.
Add the flour and wheat germ, mixing until combined. Stir in the oatmeal and raisins.
Drop 1/4-cup dollops of batter four inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Press down slightly with the palm of your hand to flatten into three-inch rounds.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges are browned. Let stand 1 minute on the tray, then remove to a wire rack.

My new motto? Have a cookie for breakfast!

Actually, cookies are the only way I'll ever eat oatmeal, so I also believe that oatmeal rasin cookies are breakfast food by design. I just like the idea of bacon and OJ in my cookies, too.

I totally agree about cookies being a breakfast food. With or without bacon.
