Muesli Cookies – A meal in a cookie!

If you don’t have time to make breakfast; two of these cookies and a strong cup of coffee will set you up!

First make your own favourite breakfast muesli.

Muesli

My muesli is different every time. Today I toasted oats, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, quinoa, raisins and dried blueberries. Everything except the fruit goes into a large baking pan with a dash of oil.

Bake on low until toasted. At the end of the baking period I add the dried fruit and a swirl of honey. Then toss together. Bake 4 more minutes.

Cool.

Breakfast cookies.

Cream together: 2 sticks of soft butter with 1 cup of brown sugar.

Then add 2 room temperature eggs and 2 tsp of vanilla.

Blend in: 3 cups of muesli and 1 and 1/2 cups of AP flour. ( I used Janie’s Mill organic Red Fife) plus an extra 1/2 cup of raisins.

Scoop even sized balls of dough and roll with wet hands. Flatten with wet fork.

Bake at 375 for 15- 20 minutes. Until slightly brown around the edges.

Cool on rack.

Have a lovely day! I know this is a short post today but I really wanted to remind you about these cookies. We used to make them by the hundred when the woofers and farm cadets were here. Do you remember?

The hey days! Hay Days!

Good simple food.

Take care!!

  1. Oh, I do remember those days with the young farm helpers coming and going. Seems like ages ago, which probably means I’m the one who’s surely aging!
