Double Oat Breakfast Cookies

I don’t know about you but around here…there are many mornings that my head is literally spinning trying to get kids dressed, teeth brushed, hair combed, backpacks packed, out the door before the bell rings…oops, did I forget to feed them breakfast?  These cookies are perfect to have on hand for just those mornings!!  Packed whole grains (whole wheat flour, oats & Cheerios) and protein (peanut butter) and they taste great!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375. In large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl. Beat in water, egg, and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour until combined. Beat in as much of the rolled oats as you can with mixer. Stir in any remaining oats. Stir in raisins and/or chocolate chips & rolled oats.
  2. Drop dough by scant 1/4 cupfuls about 3-inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely. Store cookies in a tightly covered container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

I clipped this recipe out of Better Homes and Gardens years ago and just came across it again after doing some MUCH needed spring cleaning!

May Day Baskets

is around the corner which makes me reminisce back to my childhood! Placing a cup or cone full of goodies on my friends’ porches, ringing the door bell and running like crazy so I wouldn’t get caught. However, I grew up in a rural community so my mom was my getaway car, which made it a little easier getting away at lightening fast speed! J I carry on the tradition with my kiddos each year and luckily…our neighborhood is chalk full of kiddos, so many in fact we have to buy double and triple of all the goodies! The smiles on my kiddo’s faces while delivering these cups of joy is just priceless and us watching through the windows while their friends open the door is even more rewarding!

Here is what we did last year for May Day! I found some fun colored cups at Costco! We filled them with some yummy candy. I cut multiple flowers out of construction paper and used a paper punch to make a hole in the middle of the flower. I then took a drinking straw and put it down through the hole of the flower, then I took a sucker and stuck the stick down inside the straw. I then cut the straw down a little so they would fit perfectly in the cup! I made tag on my computer saying “Happy May Day” and taped them to the front of the cups! That’s it…super cute, super easy and super inexpensive!!

Baskets are made…time to make our secret deliveries!!
