These cookies are so fun to make & very forgiving. I call them "clean out my pantry cookies" because I get out my large glass measuring bowl and just start dumping in the dregs of all my cereals, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, etc. until I hit the 6 cup line. They’re different every time I make them! For the “base” of the cookies I do substitute in 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup whole wheat flour. Also, if your cookies are flat or spreading too much, try adding 1/3 cup of wheat germ or oat bran to the mixture; you can also substitute non-hydrogenated vegetable shortening for up to half of the butter. (Shortening holds its shape better.) And although I agree that these aren’t exactly healthy for breakfast, they sure are better than average for a cookie!
