The scariest thing about these cookies is how fast they disappear! You'd never guess they were healthy.

Breakfast Monster Cookies

6 eggs
1 Cup butter
2 Cups brown sugar
1 1/2 Cup honey (I substituted sugar and molasses and they were great!)
9 Cups oatmeal
4 tsp. soda
18 to 24 oz. peanut butter
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 Cup dried milk
1 Cup golden raisins
1 Cup dates
1 (6 oz.) pkg. dried mixed fruit
12 oz. chocolate chips (optional, but come on, is chocolate ever optional?)

Mix ingredients in order. Use a tablespoon to make large scoops. Flatten to 3/4 of an inch (though I didn't flatten mine and they came out fine). Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Do not overbake. These really are a meal in themselves (or so I tell myself when I'm nicking three and calling it lunch).
