Breakfast in a Cookie

This recipe comes from Zonya Foco. I don't eat if for breakfast, but it's a nice snack to have around. This recipe makes 5 dozen cookies.

Preheat oven to 375 and spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.

Mix the following together in a small bowl and set aside to soak for 10 min.
1 cup oat bran
3/4 cup orange juice

Meanwhile combine the following in a large bowl and mix til smooth:
1 cup + 1 T applesauce, unsweetened
2 T canola oil
1 cup honey
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 T vanilla extract
1 T grated orange rind or 2 tsp orange extract

Measure the following into a sifter and sift over applesauce mixture:
3 cups whole wheat pastry flour (ground soft white wheat) or 1 1/2 cups white flour and 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 T baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
(I skip the sifting part)

Add the soaked oat bran and remaining ingredients to the large bowl and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon. Drop by slightly heaping tablespoons 1 inch apart. Bake until light browned or 12 to 14 min.

1 cup nonfat dry milk
2 1/2 cups oats (quick or regular)
1 cup nuts
1 cup raisins
1 cup ground flax seed (optional)
