COOOOKIE monsters!

A couple days ago i was doing my daily blog rituals...and by that i mean going to like 5 blogs (compared to others' 350+ blogs) anyway, as i was doing that, i came upon a breakfast cookie recipe and i thought it looked SO good so tonight i made some. i made them kinda sorta healthy (as much as a cookie can be). to do that i used wheat flour instead of white, oats and raisins etc. the last sheet is baking right now and boy oh boy do they smell delicious if i do say so myself. i'll have to post a link to where i found the recipe and all that good stuff but i'm not really in the mood to look for it right now :) . as per usual i had to document the event of baking so i had my errrr trusty (?) operating the camera for most of the pics.

a lot of people know that i often take WAY too many pictures hence getting a new laptop to help store them all so there are a few from tonight...and by a few i mean like 5. seriously.

i'm not really eating the least not in this picture.

spooning them on giada de laurentiis style Represent

more of the dough that was so hard to resist.
and finally the finished cookie woot woot. now i will put them in freezer bags and freeze them. then i guess nuke them in the morning.....? ya we'll go with that

Now which would you rather have...a cookie for breakfast, or a candy bar made into little balls? i know what my vote is for. especially since i don't eat cereal following a traumatic experience as a child involving a syringe, disgusting pink ear infection antibiotics and captain crunch....she thought she was so smart. the woman turned me off of cereal for life.

here's the recipe:
Breakfast Cookies:
Cream 1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup peanut butter (I like Adam's- no sugar)
2 cups sugar (white or brown)
add 4 eggs
1 Tablespoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk
combine seperately
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups oats
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
combine wet and dry ingredients. Mix very well. Spoon onto cookie sheet. These have more of a cake texture and will not spread out much during baking. I like to make them big, since they are breakfast cookies.
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes, or until done.

Man! Kids can hang onto their anger for way too long!!! The cookies are absolutely scrumptious by the way!! Bug her until she puts the link to the recipe on here. Love Mom

Hey, pink antibiotics hides nicely in those little pink balls in Captain Crunch. What can I say?!
