It’s time to Fill the Cookie Jar! Every first Thursday of the month I join with some of my favorite bloggers to make a theme based cookie and post about it. We are in Fall frame of mind this month. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to read what they have made.
I went with a breakfast cookie this month because I am still getting into the Back to School routine. These Apple Raisin Breakfast Cookies are great if we get up late, or I can pack one up as a snack.
I modified this from a recipe in Sweet Mercy’s Top 5 Breakfast Cookies. I paid $1 for this when I first got my Kindle and I think I have made all 5 cookies now.
There are plenty of ways to customize these. Pick your favorite kind of nuts, or skip them like I did. Swap cranberries or other dried fruit for the raisins. Add honey instead of the maple sugar. Go with margarine and egg substitute to make them vegetarian.
Then grab your favorite kind of milk (or other protein drink) and enjoy a few of these delicious cookies knowing that Fall will soon be here and the 100+ degree weather will be over for awhile. At least I hope it will.
