Default Cookies for Breakfast?!!

I have not tried this recipe but for those who like sweet stuff for breakfast this would probably be better than doughnuts....if you can stop with no more than about three!! (at least I try to keep my breakfasts at around 300+/- cal)

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour or whole grain pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
2 medium eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons fat-free milk
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup semisweet mini-chocolate chips (or a dark chocolate bar broken into bits)

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.

In another large bowl, whisk the oil, sugar, and honey until creamy. Add the eggs and stir until thoroughly combined. Add the milk and vanilla extract and stir again. Add the flour mixture and stir until just combined, then fold in the oats, raisins, and chocolate chips. Drop the dough by a tablespoon onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 9 to 13 minutes or until slightly brown but still very soft. Cool on the baking sheet several minutes, then carefully transfer to a rack.

When completely cool, store in an airtight container.

Makes 36
