Breakfast Cookies

My daughters used to buy breakfast cookies at the grocery store, and then they seemed to disappear from the shelves.  They liked having them on the mornings they needed to grab a quick breakfast before school, or now and then when they needed a filling snack.  I had forgotten about them until last week when King Arthur Flour posted a recipe for them on their website.  I gave them a try, and they are very good.  It was a great opportunity to use up all of the leftover bits of dried fruit and nuts that we had used in our Christmas baking.  And they are definitely filling.  I also think they would make a great snack for active kids that need something healthy and filling in the afternoon.  They also keep well just in case you don't manage to get through them all in a day or two.

(Note ... my picture didn't come out very well, so I am hereby giving full credit of this picture to King Arthur Flour).

I just recently discovered King Arthur Flour recipes. They all seem to be winners. I just tried their brownie recipe.
