Breakfast Trail Mix Cookies

Ok, so these cookies aren't exactly "healthy" breakfast food, but they're a nice break from my normal meal of oats and fruit. You could probably make these even healthier by substituting the butter for mashed banana or apple sauce. I'll probably experiment more with this recipe because these came out really delicious.

1 1/4 cup rolled oats
1 1/4 cup trail mix (I used equal parts chocolate chips, dried cranberries and peanuts)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup room earth balance (or real butter)
1/4 cup water
1 flax egg (or real egg)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon 
1/4 tsp nutmeg

-Preheat oven to 350*F.
-Mix all dry ingredients together, then do the same with the wet. Add The wet to dry.
-Bake for 12-15 mins, until cookies are firm enough to transfer.
-Cool on a baking rack, and then store in an airtight container.

These cookies would also be great with 1 tsp orange zest.
