    How many cookies does this make? Also I do not have a food processor. Can you make this without one?

    • Lisa says:

      Tara – it makes 12 cookies. You can certainly make in a blender, or in a stand mixer as well.

    • Jennifer Chandra says:

      I know this a bit late, but I used a blender for the food processor step, and had great success! We love these breakfast cookies. :)

      • Lisa says:

        Oh great to know Jennifer!! I myself didn’t own a food processor until a few months ago and was always intimidated by recipes that called for it.

    I made these yesterday and they are very yummy. I found them to be very moist and chewy which was great right after they came out of the oven but now after being in an airtight container they are getting kind of mushy. I am not sure if they are too thick or if I didn’t cook them for long enough. There was a big range for time in the oven – 18-30 minutes. Any ideas?

    • Lisa says:

      Lauren – If they become mushy in an airtight container- I would suggest just keeping them in the freezer, then popping them out when you need them. I have even eaten these frozen in a pinch!

    These were gone in a flash at my house.

    Made these without the strawberries and the kids gobbled them up.

    • Lisa says:

      Yeah for Kid approved breakfast cookies! My kids sometimes turn their noses at “different” things in their cookies too. I may try omitting the strawberries as well!
