Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

1/2 cup margarine
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 beaten eggs
3 cups grated (or finely food processed) apples
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon (I actually did more like 1 tbsp)
1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

Cream shortening and sugar, add eggs. Stir in apples. Sift dry stuff together and stir into wet stuff. Add oatmeal and stir til well blended. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

They go great with either coffee or tea. You can substitute zucchini for the apples too.

I love anything with apples and cinnamon Alix. Thanks for posting.

P.S. How many would this recipe make? Would they turn out okay if I half the recipe as I will be the only one eating them.

Okay, they're baking in the oven right now and it smells soooooooooooooo good in here. I only prepared half of the recipe since no one else will eat them at my house (maybe DH will taste them). I used 1/3 less sugar and a touch of white whole wheat flour for extra fiber. The taste of the dough is wonderful so I'm sure they will taste even better when they're baked. Thanks Alix.

Alix, I loved the cookies! Thanks! I managed to make 14 large ones. They are so delicious and look forward to having more in the morning with my coffee. They remind me of some I used to make to take to work for the teachers. I'd add more dried fruit and walnuts.

Hi Alix and Patt~
Thank you for your cookie recipes. They both sound wonderful. I have apples and zucchini in my garden and these recipes will give me more uses for them. I have three questions: Have either of you frozen the baked cookies? Do they taste okay after they have been frozen? Alix - may I substitute butter for the margarine in your recipe? Thanks, again, to both of you for sharing your recipes.

Your welcome. I have never frozen them, but I don't see why not.

These sound like just what I've been looking for....
inexpensive, homemade, filling snacks to send to school for my son....
They don't eat lunch til 1:30..... he eats breakfast at 6:30 am, so they have snack time and I need to get creative!
