Cookies for Breakfast sounds crazy..but delicious..right?!? Who's with me? Well I came across-what sounded like an amazing breakfast cookie recipe, over at Wise Bread, and I was really looking forward to these cookies turning out, but I must have done something wrong somewhere!!
I followed the recipe exactly which is: 3 ripe mashed bananas, 1/3 cup apple sauce, 2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats, 1/4 cup skim milk (except I used lactose free whole milk, could this be where I went wrong?) 1/2 cup raisins (or any other dried fruit you want to add), 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tbsp Splenda , sugar or other sweetener (I used normal sugar).
The batter seemed ok but a little wetter then I felt it should have been...I went ahead and continued anyway. I let mixture stand for at least 5 minutes as said and heaped the dough by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. I then baked for 15-20 minutes and let cool.
Here is a picture of how they turned out:
Very rubbery like and kind of a wet banana flavor...
Since my batter was so wet, I decided to add some flour and a bit more of sugar to see if that would help. The texture turned out a lot better but the flavor was just gross.
I was a little bummed and really wonder why mine didn't turn out?
