Breakfast Magic

For the kid who doesn't like breakfast food... BREAKFAST COOKIES!bREAKfaSt CooKiE ReciPE:
1 1/4 c. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 canola oil
1/4 c. brown sugar
3 Tbsp sugar
1 egg
1 mashed over ripe banana
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. crushed raisin bran cereal
1/3 c. walnuts
preheat oven to 350
combine dry ingredients in medium sized bowl
in a seperate bowl combine butter, oil and sugars. Beat until light in color. Add egg, vanilla and mashed banana.
add flour, beat 30 sec.
add oatmeal, beat 30 sec.
add cereal and nuts and beat just until combined.
*over beating this mixture makes the cookies too dense and chewy*
spray cookie sheet and scoop batter into mounds.
*I made them way too big...for kids that is. Nick couldn't eat a whole one.*
dough will be sticky and not as cohesive as traditional cookie dough.
bake for 12 minutes.
eat them hot! or let cool on rack
they are a delicious and semi-healthy way to start the day.
This recipe is my version of Ellie Krieger's found here.
