Beverly's Get Up & Go Breakfast Cookies

These are delicious alternatives to cold cereal, and kids love them. Barley cereal works just as well. Don't omit the orange peel!

These are excellent little on the go breakfast cookies. I substituted applesauce for the butter and they came out perfectly. I would definitely recommend doing this to get rid of the majority of the fat. I think they'd probably be good with some white chocolate drizzled over the top, but they're still coming out of the oven, so I have not tried that yet. Thanks for the great recipe!


My family love this recipe! hubby included... ;) I used all purpose whole wheat flour to make my cookies and they turned out great!


These cookies were a pleasant surprise-the flavor and texture were delicious-my daughter loved them. We also added raisins to the top. Next time we'll mix in batter. I would recommend this recipe to anyone who has kids.
