    My daughter and I made these this morning and they came out great.
    http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Hearty-Breakfast-Cookies/Detail.aspx

    I changed the recipe a tad, using 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup apple sauce instead of 1/2 cup butter. Also, our spare jar of peanut butter was reduced fat so I used that instead of regular. And we only had one egg so I used one regular egg and then egg replacer for the second egg (dh is a vegan so we always have egg replacer in the house, it's this powdery stuff that you mix with water). I used 1% milk instead of water. And instead of a cup of raisins I did 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Neither of my children are big raisin fans so I though that was a good compromise. My cookie scooper is a one inch scooper so we made 60 smaller cookies and baked them for 13 minutes.

    Now I am officially "The best mom ever!" for allowing my kids to have cookies for breakfast! My daughter rated them a 10 and my son an 8. I'll have to remember to let the babysitter know tomorrow that, yes, they may have cookies for breakfast :).

    LOL mopar, good point! As you know, there is never a lack of variety of cookies at my house. Breakfast cookies = okay for breakfast; chocolate dipped meringues = not okay for breakfast!

    Hey Buck! Good to hear from you! I was just asking yesterday on the After Party if anyone had heard from you lately.

    I haven't tried baking with Greek yogurt. My parents have Greek yogurt almost every day though.

    Well, they do sound good but I think you changed the recipe enough to make them your own recipe. They defintely sound like MsMar's Special Breakfast Cookies! I would take full credit for them if I were you!

    LOL Teacher NY I guess I did make quite a few changes! Most of the changes were based on various recommendations in the comments sections. I pretty much always reduce half the butter and change to apple sauce in anything I bake that's remotely healthy. It works almost every time without any flavor issues.

    I saved that recipe to my box on the site but have never made it. I guess I need to!

    Definitely try them teacherintx. They weren't very hard to make and really did come out yummy. Next time I'm going to see if 1 cup of brown sugar will be sufficient, as I'm happy with my fat reduction from the original version , but it's still a bit higher in sugar than I'd like for a breakfast food. Especially since I added in the chocolate chips!
