This recipe creates a crunchy, thin oatmeal cookie that's hard to beat whether you're at the kitchen counter with the morning paper, waiting for the bus with a latte or commuting from the gym to work. Now that's the way to start a morning.

Recipe Ingredients for Breakfast Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup toasted whole almonds, chopped (see note)
1/2 cup chopped dried dates
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal, uncooked
1/2 cup bran flakes (these are milled flakes, not breakfast cereal)
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup Grape-Nuts
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla

Recipe Directions for Breakfast Oatmeal Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the almonds, raisins and dates until blended. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oatmeal, bran flakes, whole-wheat flour, Grape-Nuts, baking soda and salt.

  3. In a stand mixer on low speed, beat the butter and brown sugar until well blended, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl at least once. On medium speed, beat in the orange zest, followed by the egg and vanilla until well blended, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl as necessary. Slowly add the oat mixture, beating on low until blended. Add almond mixture and beat until blended. The dough will be moist and clumpy.

  4. Using a tablespoon measure, scoop the dough into rounded balls. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet, 2 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Be sure to let these cookies firm and cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.

  5. Note: To toast nuts, spread on baking sheet and bake in 350-degree oven for 5 to 8 minutes or until they start to brown.
