Breakfast Cookies.

Okay.  I was unclear about the breakfast cookies' recipes so I'm going to devote a post to them.  There are two recipes with different ingredients and different caloric values.  These are BOTH different from the original allrecipe recipe.  Both versions are yummy and would freeze well.  Recipe 1 is slightly sweeter and denser than Recipe 2.  Hope this clears up any confusion!!

Lisa's Breakfast Cookie (Recipe 1)
Each cookie has 199 calories.
Breakfast cookies (Yield 25  1/4 cup cookies.)

1 small container of plain yogurt
1 cup peanut butter (I'm looking for healthier options that I can also afford!)
3/4 cup raw sugar
1/8 cup of honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk (I used whole milk, but others would likely work.)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup of wheat germ
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup chocolate chips (or raisins or craisins or white choc chips)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Beat first 5 ingredients together until creamy.
3.  Beat in eggs and milk.
4.  Add in flour, oats, wheat germ. salt, cinnamon, baking soda.  Combine well.  (And, to be honest, I totally forget I left my mixer on, so it beat a good long time with no ill effects.)
5.  Add in chocolate chips.
6.  Drop on greased cookie sheet.  (I used my 1/4 cup measure.)
7.  Bake for 15-18 minutes. (depending on your oven)
