Since I've begun shooting competitively again I've begun getting up early and for me that means a breakfast that I can grab and go with. I've made these before when I was punching a time clock, so I needed this recipe again. OK, I was at the supermarket trying to decide which granola bar I wanted and seeing the ingredients in some of them I remembered this recipe.

Yes, you can make them! The gear required is pretty minimal and they're easy!  They're also delicious, but IMO you'll want more than one for a breakfast.

Hearty Cookies for Breakfast
I think of these cookies as “soft granola”. They’d even be good as an afternoon snack, and they’re actually good for the snacker! The only “junk” is the brown sugar.

Serves : 24
Prep. Time : 0:35

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2/3 cup Coconut oil OR sub 2/3 cup butter OR margarine - softened (10 2/3 TBL)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar or succanat
1 egg OR equivalent of egg substitute
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 med. apple - peeled, cored, chopped (I use 4ozs of applesauce)
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
1 cup shredded Colby OR cheddar cheese - optional
1 cup raisins
2 cups of roasted and very finely chopped nuts: hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans, almonds. Tip: I use a tiny food processor and I stop processing the nut meats just shy of being a butter.

optional: 1 cup shredded Colby or mild cheddar cheese

-Mix together flour, cinnamon, and baking powder.
-Stir in butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla.
-Stir in apple, oatmeal, cheese, nuts, and raisins.
-Drop by tablespoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet.
-Bake in 375 degree oven for 15 minutes.
-Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.

This recipe doubles or even triples nicely.
