Breakfast Cookies

I wanted to take a break from the usual pancake, waffle, oatmeal routine I have been in lately and try some new things for Abby in the morning. Last week we tried Anytime Popsicles and Baked Donuts and loved them. This week, breakfast cookies! 
These are something my mom made for my sisters and I when we were little. They are so quick and easy to make and taste delicious!
Abby gobbled them up (and so did I). 

Breakfast Cookies 
recipe from my mom 


1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour (wheat or white is fine too) 
3/4 cup white sugar 
1 tsp salt 
1 tsp nutmeg 
3/4 tsp cinnamon 
1 tsp baking soda 
3/4 cup shortening 
1 egg 
1 or 2 mashed ripe bananas 
1 1/2 cups oats 


1. Combine all the dry ingredients, except oats. 

2. Cut in the shortening and then add the egg and banana. Mix well. 

3. Add oats and stir until mixed well. 

4. Drop teaspoon sized mounds onto ungreased cookie sheets. Makes 3 dozen. 

5. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
