Have you ever noticed that the thing with really fun stuff is that it usually makes you feel bad later on?
Like cookies for breakfast. In theory, totally awesome.
It’s cookies, it’s breakfast….what better way to start off your day than with something yummy and portable?
Except for the part afterwards where you’re all, “dude…I just ate cookies for breakfast and now I feel super fat,”…and then you go to change into your comfy fat day jeans only to realize that you don’t own fat jeans anymore.
Because your fat jeans have turned into your normal day jeans.
Which makes your old normal jeans your skinny day jeans.
And everyone knows that skinny day jeans just hang in your closet and haunt you for all your days.
Luckily for me, my fat jeans are comfy and I make really good cookies.
So no regrets.
Plus…these cookies have blueberry muffin mix, eggs, and oatmeal in them.
Sounds like a perfectly acceptable morning meal, if you ask me.
Which you SHOULD be asking me. I mean, I’m no expert, but I can pretty much make anything fun seem perfectly acceptable.
It’s the best way to live.
- 7oz box Jiffy Blueberry Muffin Mix (this is NOT to be confused with those big boxes of mix that come with a can of blueberries...these little boxes are usually under a dollar and are pretty much a staple in my house)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- dash of salt
- 1 cup quick oats
- 2/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup margarine
- Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease or spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. I used my muffin top pan (a tip I picked up from Picky Palate) for extra large cookies. Just spray the pan with nonstick spray and press about a quarter cup of cookie dough into each muffin top cup.
- Cream margarine and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat on medium speed until well blended.
- In a separate bowl, combine muffin mix, flour, baking powder, coconut, salt, and quick oats. Slowly add to butter/sugar mixture and mix well.
- Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets, or press into muffin top pan.
- Bake small cookies 8-10 minutes and large cookies 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Makes about 30-35 normal cookies or 12 large cookies from a muffin top pan.
I love oatmeal cookies, I love blueberry muffins, and I love coconut, so these are a total win for me. Hope you love them too!!
Have a happy Wednesday!!!
