Breakfast cookies replacement

My kids are totally addicted to:and , and we go through them like crazy. The cost is ridiculous for cookies, and they aren't even that healthy, since they are full of: HFCS (2nd ingredient on both), Partially Hydrogenated Oils, and "artificial flavor."

So, Hubby decided I need to make my own. I had tried this last year and no one liked the result. I decided to consult Quaker's website this time, and found a muffin recipe that works.

Yesterday I (and the kids) made it as written, without the topping, but adding chocolate chips. It was very moist but not very pretty.

Today I made a double batch, but only baked 12 and put the rest of the batter in the fridge for tomorrow. Today I substituted half whole wheat flour, use whole eggs instead of just egg whites, and was generous with the oatmeal.  I added in about 1/2 cup of sweetened shredded coconut, and sprinkled more of that on top. They came out much prettier.

This is such a versatile recipe that I think we can keep it going for quite a while, using various dried fruits and kinds of chips. I have a stockpile of cinnamon chips because I bought OODLES last time I found them. they will be SUPER in these!!
