i thought i would try these cookies think ing they sounded alright, but now that i have made them, they are the best cookies i have ever made, my family loves them, and the peanut butter flavor fits in well. i also like the idea that they have a little of everything in them, mostley i like the bran


I used grapenuts for the bran cereal. We really enjoyed these cookies. In fact they make a terrific breakfast cookie. My teenager who prefers not to eat breakfast will have at least 2 of these with oj before heleeaves the house. I am about to make a second batch in the same week.


These are good cookies. But, they should be baked around 10 minutes, most of my cookies burnt. I had to through half of them away, but for the ones that didn't burn, they were pretty tasty!
