ON-THE-GO...Breakfast Cookies

a fun way to catch breakfast if you're always in a hurry to get out the door.  these babies are quite tasty and they really DO fill you up.  they have all the right "good-for-you" breakfast ingredients ...


as you know, i'm always on the hunt for fun breakfast ideas.  i came across this idea while aimlessly googling around and found a site called Mr. Breakfast...which then led me to the original recipe from Jennifer at her blog Cookin' in the 'Cuse.   i knew these sounded right up my alley...being that there is bacon involved... so i took her recipe and added a few more healthy goodies.

slightly adapted form Cookin' in the 'Cuse 

1/2 lb bacon...6-10 strips
1/2 cup butter...i used 5 Tsp butter and 3 Tsp bacon fat
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup soft packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup white whole wheat flour...AP flour ok
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 cups multi-grain cereal...i used Fiber One Flakes
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 Tbsp flax
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp maple extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook bacon until very crisp, drain well (reserve bacon fat if using) and break into 1/2 inch pieces.  Beat together butter, bacon fat (if using) and both sugars till light and fluffy.  Beat in egg and the extracts  Combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking soda; mix into butter mixture.  Stir in bacon, flax-optional, multi-grain flakes and cranberries. 
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Space 2 inches apart.  Bake for 15-18 minutes.  Remove to rack to cool--about 2 minutes, then remove from rack.

I just made these tonight for our road-trip home to Texas this weekend. THEY ARE AWESOME!!! They have a great combination of flavors. I used honey bunches of oats for the cereal and I liked how it turned out with some crunch :) Great recipe!

I'll definitely be making these this soon! I need something quick to eat while I'm rushing out the door on my way to school in the morning. They look delicious :)

I don't eat pork, so how do you think turkey bacon will fare in the cookies?
