Take away breakfast cookies



I found this recipe by accident on taste of home. com. I must say that it was a healthy accident ;).These cookies are ideal when you want to grab something in a hurry or for those "in between meals hunger pangs". Instead of munching on junk, it is best to keep these cookies handy. We are so much  in love with these that we carry these where ever we go. S even takes these to the office these days. With the goodness of whole wheat, oats, milk and seeds, you can be sure to have a whole some snack without indulging too much. And believe me folks, these cookies are very filling. You just munch on one cookie and you can go on for an hour without another rumble in your stomach.

  • Flatten them into 3" circles and bake for 12-15mins or till the undersides are brown.

You can also add raisins or currants or dried cranberries
