"Breakfast" Refreshments?

I have to make some kind of breakfast refreshment for my Sunday School class on Dec. 19. I need something that will travel well & can be eaten with little mess. Most people bring donuts for this but I want to make something. A couple of weeks ago we had a breakfast casserole, so I want to steer away from that too. Does anyone have any suggestions? There are normally about 15-20 people in my class. Any help is greatly appriciated! :D

Is it adults or kids? (I think I have a recipe somewhere at home for breakfast cookies. I can look for that if you want.)

PA, it's adults. I have a recipe for breakfast cookies too, it's posted somewhere in the Desserts, Sweets, & Baking area. But, if you wouldn't mind posting your's too, so I can see if there are any diffrences, I'd appriciate it. One can never have too many recipes! :D

Mudbug, I thought about that but I just don't know. I'm terrible when I have to make up my mind! :oops:

how about an assortment of mini muffins - the pecan pie ones come to mind...can't remember where I've seen the recipe lately either...
I'll be on the lookout for those breakfast cookie recipes - I can not get my 9th grader to eat breakfast at all...so if they are good, I can maybe get one in him in the mornings.

I found it! I had it here afterall. I haven't made these in a long time, but do remember you can change them up a lot if you want. Sub out half the raisins for chocolate chips (or all!), use Craisins instead of raisins, nuts, flax seed instead of wheat germ (I prefer the wheat germ), etc.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup raisins
1/3 cup water


Directions
1 In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together
butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and vanilla until creamy.
Beat in eggs and water or buttermilk.
2 Mix together flours, oats, wheat germ, salt, cinnamon,
and baking soda. Mix into peanut butter mixture. Stir in
dates or raisins. Drop by ice cream scoopfuls 2 1/2 inches
apart on greased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly.
3 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 18 - 20
minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to
cooling racks. Store in an airtight container.

Little smoky piggies in blankets might be a nice change. With some honey mustard and BBQ dipping sauces. Maybe make that awesome banana bread everyone's been raving about. too.

I guess Bloody Mary accompaniments would be out of the question.

Some sort of "Contemporary Communion?"

Had another flash. What about gingerbread men or gingerbread muffins? After all, they're very seasonal.

I do so enjoy thinking up work for other people to do!
