Loaded Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies


Loaded Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Who says that you cannot enjoy cookie recipes for breakfast? Loaded with oats and dried fruit, this Loaded Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies recipe from Anne Colagioia will get your morning going right. Healthy baking has never been more invigorating!


If you are following a gluten free diet you can replace the (flour, baking soda, and salt) with 1 1/4 cups of gluten free Bisquick instead. Alternately you could replace just the flour with gluten free all purpose flour. Also be sure to use rolled oats that are certified gluten free. These cookies can also be made as bar cookies by pressing the dough into a 13x9 inch pan then baking for 35 minutes.
