Breakfast Cookies are chocked full of fruits, nuts, seeds and oats. There's a little bit of sugar in there too, just for energy, of course...and yes, those are dark chocolate chips...what's your point?
1heaping cup of mixed chopped nutsdried fruits, seeds, chocolate chips, etc.
set oven to 350F
Cream the shortening with the sugars until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Whisk the dry ingredients together. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until combined, but don't over beat.
Fold in the fruits & nuts, etc, until evenly distributed.
Scoop the dough out with a 1/4 cup measure and pack it in. Flip it out onto your baking sheet and flatten just slightly. Set the cookies 2 inches apart, and bake for 13 minutes until they are just turning golden. They might appear slightly underdone, but they will firm up as they cool.
Cool on a rack.
