Saturday, August 25, 2007 Recipe Request Found - Healthy Breakfast Cookies with Prunes and Beet Sugar

Big thanks to Johanna for finding this recipe, that a reader recently requested! It sounds SOOO good...

Here's a recipe I found on the web in response to the request for healthy cookies with prune and beet sugar. They are called Baker's Breakfast Cookies. This recipe uses brown sugar but I'm not sure if you could substitute beet sugar. Love your website!

Ingredients:2 cups brown sugar2 1/2 cups rolled oats4 cups all-purpose flour1 tablespoon baking soda1 teaspoon baking powder1 teaspoon salt1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon1/4 cup canola oil1/2 cup prune puree2 tablespoons water5 egg whites1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract3/4 cup raisins1/4 cup chopped walnuts1/3 cup chopped dried apricots

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Make a well in the center and pour in the canola oil, prune puree, water, egg whites and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Stir in the raisins, walnuts and apricots. Scoop cookies using an ice cream scoop, or roll into golf ball sized balls. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets and flatten to 1/2 tall with wet hands. These cookies do not flatten very much while baking. In the preheated oven, bake 8 minutes for chewy cookies 10 to 12 minutes for dry cookies. Cookies will not get crisp. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. " These turn out exactly like baker's breakfast cookies! The trick is to underbake them a little bit, and the result is the soft cakey cookie you know and love! "
