Recipe Notes

  • To make this recipe gluten-free, use gluten-free oats and gluten-free flour. 
  • Be sure to try different dried fruits and nuts to create a breakfast cookie recipe all your own.
  • Serve these cookie bars with a side of fresh fruit, coffee, milk or just by themselves.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container. You also can freeze them for later. 

Here’s how to make them:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Use aluminum foil or parchment paper to line a 13x9-inch baking pan and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Set the pan aside.
  2. In a bowl using an electric mixer on low speed, cream together butter, honey, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking soda and oats. Stir until well-mixed. The mixture will form large, soft clumps.
  3. Stir in dried fruit and nuts.
  4. Press mixture into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 18 to 20 until edges begin to turn brown. Remove the pan from oven. Use a small loaf pan or other smooth-bottomed dish to press the bars flat.
  5. Allow the cookies to cool completely. Use a sharp knife or a pizza cutter to cut into six rows of four or any size you wish. Store the bar cookies in a sealed container at room temperature for up to a week. You can also freeze them to serve later.
