Another recipe moment at Gayle's. Here is a recipe I love for breakfast! It is low fat and I love that I am having a cookie for breakfast!

1 c brown sugar
1 1/4 c rolled oats
2 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 t pumpkin pie spice
6 T applesauce
6 T pumpkin puree (if using homemade, make sure it is thick like canned)
2 egg whites
3/4 t vanilla extract
1/2 c dried cranberries

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place all ingredients in bowl, stir together until combined. Roll the cookies into golf ball sized balls with cooking oil sprayed hands. Place on cookie sheet (s) about 2 inches apart, giving them room to spread slightly. Spray tops with cooking oil, flip over with a cooking oil sprayed spatula, these are precautions so your cookies won't stick to the pan. Bake about 8 minutes for moist cookies and 10-12 for dry cookies. Store in tupperware between layers of waxed paper.

  1. Hmm, this sounds wonderful. I can use the Splenda brown sugar I guess. It sounds like a great breakfast meal. That's one of my downfalls is breakfast. I don't do enough for breakfast. I'm going to copy this recipe to my collection, thanks for sharing!!

  2. Oh, those sound so good! Cookies for breakfast!

  3. Yum!
    Cookies for breakfast? What could be better?!

  4. The dogs look so cute in their Halloween scarves!

  5. Now that's a breakfast I could get my mouth around! And a lovely cup of coffee to help it on its way!

  6. have you seen the TV commercial for cookies you eat as meal substitutes for breakfast and lunch to lose weight?
    This recipe does have sugar but it seems to be pretty high in fiber.
    Wonder if they are a close enough substitute?

  7. Hi Terri

    Remember me? Life has been sooooo C-R-A-Z-Y lately...but a good kind of crazy, so I can't complain even though it has kept me from visiting. But...I'm home now...for a week or so anyway. Even though I'm sick with a cold AND a stomach virus (yuk), it's so good to be home.

    I've had fun this afternoon reading all your posts I've missed. Thanks for some yummy sounding recipes...great for Fall.

    How are you feeling now? Anything new with your test results?


  8. That recipe sounds delicious! Fall is such a beautiful time of year. I saw the book The Shack on your bookshelf. I read that book a couple of weeks ago and liked it. I am reading The Brides of Lancaster County now. Just finished up The Daughters of Lancaster County. I really enjoy your blog, it is great!
