Banana Cranberry Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies


 

I have seen this cookie on My Fitness Pal, and I knew I had to try it. The recipe on the site has 3 ingredients. Mine has 4 ingredients. Oats, bananas, sunflower seeds, and dried cranberries,


Pulse in a food processor 1 cup of oats until it is a flour-type consistency. 


Mash 3 medium bananas

Add the pulsed oats, an additional 1/2 cup of oats, 2 tablespoons each dried cranberries and sunflower seeds



Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.

Drop by teaspoonfuls on a baking sheet. flatten into a cookie.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes for a soft chewy cookie, cook longer for a crunchier cookie


This cookie is what I expected. It does not have the texture of a typical cookie. it is more of a dense cookie. There is no added sugar, so you get the sweetness from the bananas and the cranberries. I do think that these cookies are perfect for breakfast or a healthy snack. So do give these cookies a try.

Applesauce Cookies

I had come across this recipe in my vintage Betty Crocker Cookie Book. I knew I had to make them. It has all the ingredients my husband likes.  This cookie did turn out to be a hit, my husband loves it. The applesauce gives the cookie a soft cake-like texture. The raisins and spices make this cookie taste like my Raisin Spice Cookies.




Here is the recipe for these cookies.


1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup shortening

2 cups brown sugar

2 eggs

2 Cups of well-drained applesauce - very important!








1/2 cup cold coffee

3 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon cloves

1 cup raisins

1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix butter, shortening, sugar, and eggs, Stir in applesauce and coffee, Add in remaining ingredients, and chill for at least 2 hours. Heat oven to 400 degrees F,  Drop by tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 9-12 minutes until it is done.

Egg in the Hole


I think the egg in the hole is also called Toad in the Hole. Anyway. I had this for the first time and it was tasty, especially with homemade bread. I added butter to the bread, and put it in the frying pan
I should have greased my pan (or had a good nonstick pan) because my egg stuck to the pan. I also toasted my hole too.





I will definitely make it again, especially if I have leftover homemade bread.

Raisin Spice Cookies 2.0

So this is it, my final version of my husband's favorite cookie. His mother had made them all the time and insisted I get the recipe from her. I posted the original recipe back in 2011.  In the original blog post, I had mentioned that she gave me the flour measurement for 1 1/2 batches and the remaining ingredients were for a single batch, I thought that was strange to do that.


My husband was asking for raisin spice cookies, this time I looked over the recipe. In the end, I decided to mimic the recipe after a certain chocolate chip cookie I already knew.

So here is the final recipe for Raisin Spice Cookies:

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup butter - I used 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups raisins


Cream butter and sugar. Combine the eggs and vanilla.

Combine the dry ingredients, and add to the butter mixture. Add in the raisins Mix until just combined.

Drop about 2 tablespoons (I have a cookie scoop) onto a greased cookie sheet (I have a silicone baking sheet) and bake for about 8-10 minutes in a 350-degree oven or until the desired doneness. 


That is it, my now goto recipe for raisin spice cookies.
