Quaker Breakfast Cookies

Quaker Breakfast CookiesQuaker Oats launched a new product called "Quaker Breakfast Cookies". It's supposed to be something like oatmeal in a cookie.

I'm not sure if it really qualifies as junk food, but since they're calling it a cookie, I'm having trouble identifying this as anything different than a standard oatmeal cookie.

Quaker says it's made with whole gain Quaker oats, and each cookie contains 5 grams of dietary fiber. They don't say how much sugar is packed into this thing, however. Quaker doesn't have this up on its website yet.

Available in two varieties, oatmeal raisin, and apple cinnamon. Retailing for $3.29 for a box of six cookies.

Quaker had a soft square "Breakfast Bar" a year or two ago that didn't really go anywhere. From the look of these cookies, they're the same thing. But round.

Yah But these taste a whole lot better...

15 grams of sugar, for a total of 33 grams of carbs. 180 calories for a single cookie. It's just a cookie. No breakfast about it.

THESE ARE A REALLY GREAT SOURCE OF FIBER FOR MY 5 YEAR OLD THAT IS SUPPOSED TO EAT 6-8 GRAMS OF FIBER PER DAY. EACH COOKIE HAS 5 GRAMS OF FIBER IN IT!! EVEN IF THEY ARE 'JUST COOKIES' TO YOU GUYS OUT THERE....AT LEAST THEY DO CONTAIN A LOT OF THE HEALTHY FIBER THAT MOST COOKIES DO NOT HAVE! MY DAUGHTER LOVES THEM TOO!

But we can slap the words "Breakfast Cereal" on that box of Lucky charms, or froot loops, and call that nutrition?

A bit expensive. Great source of fiber: 20%DV (5g) and calcium: 30%DV.
They taste pretty good, I still like the "Oatmeal to Go" bars better (formerly known as "Breakfast Bars")

I just bought the Quaker Breakfast
Cookies. It would be good as a mid-
afernoon snack instead of something
sweet. I do a lot of walking and eat right. It has a lot of fiber.
I do eat a lot of oat meal cereal.
I feel a blanced diet and exercise
is a smart way to to keep healthy. !!!!!

Thing with these processed foods is, no matter how much fiber they have in them, you have to balance that with sugars and fats. How much protein does this type of snack contain? It's protein that gives you long-lasting energy. The high sugars give you an energy rush, but then your body pumps insulin into the system and you get sluggish...And hungry again! None of these boxed foods can compare to, for instance, eating whole grain bread topped with natural peanut butter, low-fat cheese, or an egg.

It's complex carbs. that give you long lasting energy; sugar is a simple carb. and is absorbed too fast in the body. It gives you highs and lows in your insulin level. You need protein for your muscles and your metabolism; protein is the fuel for the metabolism and you use alot of calories processing proteins.

These breakfast cookies are no good... They contain high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils. Even though there are no trans fats, partially hydragenated oils are responsible for clogging arteries which is what trans fat does. You're better off with some fruit and cereal

My 11 year old loves the "cookies" and has two in the morning. The fiber content is great and it is easier/quicker then oatmeal. If we are running late, she can take it to school.

They also have 2 grams of SOLUBLE fiber, which is what lowers cholesterol. A lot easier to eat than a bowl of oatmeal on your way to work!

the stats on the box of oatmeal raisin breakfast cookies:

1 cookie is 1.69 oz and contains:
170 calories
4.5 grams fat:
1 gram saturated fat
1.5 polyunsaturated fat
0 grams trans fat
1.5 g monounsaturated fat
5 mg cholesterol
190 mg sodium
120 mg potassium
33 g carbohydrate:
5 g dietary fiber
2 g soluble fiber
15 g sugars
3 g protein

oh, and 35% recommended iron, which is pretty impressive for a cookie.

ingredients: does have HFCS and PHSO

In the end they taste good, and are better than eating a regular cookie, though like many other commercially produced breakfast foods should not be considered a health food.
