Indulgence?

Not really,
but they make you look like a really awesome in the eyes of a toddler!



Breakfast Cookies

2 c old fashioned oats
1 1/4 c whole wheat flour
1 c all purpose flour
1 c grape-nuts cereal
1/2 c wheat germ
1/2 c oat bran
2 c unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1 c brown sugar (packed)
1/2 c sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1 c chopped almonds
1 c pitted chopped dates
oh, and I added some chocolate chips - there is the indulgence

oven 350. mix oats, flours, grape-nuts, germ, oat bran, and baking soda in large bowl. using electric mixer, beat butter until creamy - add eggs, sugars, and vanilla and beat until smooth. add cereal mixture and stir. mix in almonds, raisins, and dates. cover and chill. let soften at room temp. then scoop and mound onto cookie sheets. recipe says to bake for 15min, but mine were done at 10. i guess you better just keep an eye on them.

...but then I read the ingredients.

wheat germ? dates? Is this a trick?

yes!

it is totally a trick and a guilt free way of eating cookies for breakfast.

hmm. i think i'll go add 3 to the 4 i've already eaten today. do you think that 5 a day still makes them healthy?
