I like to give my family a hearty start in the morning, especially when they have to eat in a hurry. These easy-to-make "cookies" are perfect for a breakfast on the run and really appeal to the kid in all of us.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 6, 2012

The nice thing about these is that you can easily adjust the flavors to suit your own taste - less sugar, more bacon and/or cheese. This recipe is good as is, but if you like to experiment try making them more savory by decreasing the sugar and adding parsley or dill, and spicy cheese like pepperjack.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 25, 2011

This recipe is a Quaker Oats recipe. I have a small cookbook from them that you ordered with labels or such many years ago and this recipe is in it and called "Breakfast Take Alongs". They are not a sweet cookie but a good quick breakfast or snack. I have made many times mainly for my husband to take in his lunch as snacks.
