Cookies for breakfast? These moist cookies loaded with oats, milk and fresh apples are a terrific start to the day at home or on-the-go.

        • 2 cups (500 mL) quick-cooking rolled oats
        • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) whole wheat flour
        • 2 tsp (10 mL) ground cinnamon
        • 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) baking powder
        • 3/4 cup (175 mL) brown sugar
        • 2 eggs
        • 1 cup (250 mL) 1% milk
        • 1/4 cup (50 mL) vegetable oil
        • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
        • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) finely chopped apples (about 1 large)

        Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C) with racks in top and bottoms thirds of oven. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together oats, flour, cinnamon and baking powder. In another bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients and sprinkle with apples; stir until just blended. Drop batter by 1/4 cup (50 mL) for each cookie onto prepared baking sheets at least 2 inches (5 cm) apart. Bake for about 15 minutes, switching pans on racks halfway, or until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let cool on pans on racks for 2 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
