Powerhouse Breakfast Cookies

  • 3 1/2 cups quick oats (they are finer cut and more powdery)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups Peanut, Almond or Sunflower seed butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup apple butter
  • 3 Bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup shelled sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 dried cranberries or raisins (or both)
  • 1/3 Chocolate or carob chips

Mix all ingredients together. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper.  Flatten the tops slightly as these cookies do not rise or spread when they bake.

Bake at 325 degrees for 15-16 minutes or until slightly browned. Cool completely and store in an airtight container or freeze in a freezer bag.
