Cookies for breakfast?

This is what we had for breakfast this morning...not bad, nutritionally and really yummy. Looking at the standard box of cereal, this has less sugar, more dietary fiber and less calories than a small bowl. (NOTE: for one kid, these were not quite sweet enough, so next time I might actually up the sugar a LITTLE. Also, 2/5 of my children want these plain, so I add the chocolate chips after I've made about a dozen, then add 2/3 c. chocolate chips.) Excuse the really seasoned stoneware. All my stoneware is really well used and very dark from use.

Oatmeal Flaxseed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 34 servings of 1 Cookie

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons sunbutter (you can use peanut butter)
4 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
1 cup chocolate chips
2-4 tablespoons brewer's yeast
