Breakfast Cookies

:: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F ::


3/4 cup flour (split white flour, whole wheat flour, almond meal...whatever works for your family)

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

/2 tsp baking powder

2/3 cup soft butter

1/3 cup honey

3/4 cup raisins, dried blueberries, or other dried berry of your choice (chop them if they're big)

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 medium red apple (grated, you can peel, but I usually don't)

1 1/2 cups quick oats

1 cup shredded medium cheddar



  • mix flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a large bowl
  • cream butter, honey, egg and vanilla in a smaller bowl
  • add creamed ingredients to flour mixture
  • stir in apple, oatmeal, dry berries and cheese
  • place large Tbsp-ful's on cookie sheets (ungreased, or use parchment) - don't flatten them, they will spread out a bit while baking.
  • 13-16 minutes @375 (they're done when the bottoms are brown and you start to see little golden bits on the tops)
  • cool on rack, store in fridge
