I whipped these up one morning because I was bored by the prospect of making oatmeal. They're super easy and quick to make. Plus they're healthy and the kids love them. Who wouldn't love cookies for breakfast!? (This recipe makes approximately 18 (1 1/2 inch) cookies.)
I'll occasionally add 1/4 tsp. of mandarin extract for a touch of citrus flavor.

Combine the ingredients in the order they appear above. Mix until well combined. Drop cookies onto baking sheet and press down slightly with fingers, if desired. (Cookies will not spread). Bake for 15 minutes.
