Giant Breakfast Cookies

I like to have some muffins, baked oatmeal, or something else quick for breakfast in the morning especially on days we need to actually leave the house! I thought these sounded perfect and the ingredients sounded similar to the Quaker Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies, those were always tasty!

Giant Breakfast Cookies-adapted from Heavenly Homemakers
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup applesauce
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup raisins, chocolate chips, or dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350

Mix together all ingredients except flour, oats, and raisins. Stir to combine. Add in flour and oats, combine until moistened. Stir in fruit or chocolate chips. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop batter onto cookie sheet. Bake for 15 mins(may need more or less time depending on the size of the cookie). Let cool for 3-4 mins and place on cooling rack.

**My cookies weren't flat like the original post...I feel like this is a theme, but anyway they were tasty. The sugar was reduced(so you can use up to 3/4 of a cup and all honey or all syrup). They were perfectly sweet and delicious! They were even approved by my 4 year old and pretty easy to make!


  1. Wow, you weren't kidding when you said these were giant cookies. All the better, it means there's so much more to enjoy and love. These sound healthy and super tasty. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog until tomorrow evening and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your cookies up.
