Breakfast Cookies

I tried these chunky cookie/muffin tops as a quick breakfast on the go to grab during VBS week! It is derived from the cookie recipe on the Jiffy Oatmeal Muffins box. I wanted something healthy and super easy, so this is what I came up with!

  • 1 box Jiffy Oatmeal Muffins mix
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 3 Tbs old fashioned oats (or quick oats)
  • 3 Tbs margarine
  • 3 Tbs peanut butter (I used crunchy and it gave the muffins a little extra nuttiness)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup coconut
  • 1/2 Cup Craisins (or raisins)

Preheat oven to 350. Combine everything except the coconut and craisins. Mix it up until it forms a thick dough. Then add the last two ingredients and mix well. Drop by large, 2 inch balls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 12 min.
