Savory Oatmeal (Grab-n-Go)Breakfast Cookies

For sometime we have been trying to in-corporate oatmeal into a savory rather than sweet breakfast. Here's what we have. In a bowl, mix 1 3/4C dry uncooked rolled oats, 1/2C flour, 1t cayenne pepper, 1t dry yeast, salt and pepper to taste.  Mix these dry ingredients well and then add 1/2C water, 2 eggs, 1/2C bulk sausage, raw(we like hot)(we have also tried bacon, 3 strips, diced, raw). We also add herbs such as oregano or thyme, 1t each. Mix well, by hand or in a food processor. Allow the dough to rest for 20 min. Form into cookies and bake at 350 F for 20-25 min.
We have also made a "heart healthy" version substituting egg beaters and turkey bacon. We don't believe you can tell the difference. Easy for a "pickup and run" breakfast and definately not sweet.
