Breakfast Cookies

What? Cookies healthy enough for breakfast?!  Not quite, but almost!  My sister-in-law dubbed these breakfast cookies one day and the name stuck.  No one believes that they are actually fairly healthy.  So, when I am in the mood for chocolate chip cookies, these are the ones I make!

Breakfast Cookies
Cream together in a large bowl:
     1 c. natural peanut butter
     1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce OR 1/2 c. coconut oil
     1 1/2 c. sucanat
Add and mix well:
     4 eggs
     2 tsp vanilla
Stir in:
     3 c. whole wheat flour
     1/2 c. milled flax seed OR 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
     1 1/2 tsp baking powder
     1/2 tsp baking soda
     water if needed (depending on your peanut butter and whether or not you
     used applesauce, you may need to add a bit of water at this point)
Mix in:
     3 c. oatmeal
     2-3 c. chocolate chips
Drop by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet or baking stone.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Cool on wire rack.  Makes about 8 dozen cookies.

I know, this makes TONS of cookies!  I usually make half the cookies and freeze half the dough for another time -- less work the next time.

I hope you enjoy them; we sure do!
