Recipe Review: Oatmeal Craisin Breakfast Cookies

I am always looking for breakfast recipes that I can make for my kids during the rush of getting out the door for school.  When I saw this recipe from Prairie Story, I knew that I had to give it a try.  If you love oatmeal, then you will love these cookies.  They are not very sweet, have a crunchy edge and soft inside.  While my kids were not crazy about them, the adults in the house definitely loved them.  They were all gone within 24 hours.  I will keep this recipe in our family cookbook simply because I loved them!


Oatmeal Craisin Breakfast Cookies
(recipe from Prairie Story)

Beat together:
3/4 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix in:
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Fold in:
3 cups oats
3/4 cup craisins
1/2 coconut shredded, sweetened

Spoon rounded tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet.  Bake at 350° for 12 minutes.


For another healthy cookie recipe, see my recipe for Andes Mint Cookies
