Peanut Butter and Raisin Bran are staples in my home. My pantry may cry if one was missing. So, why not make cookies with what’s in your pantry, right? These are seriously good enough to call Breakfast. Eating cookies for breakfast is not out of my menu options for sure.
As I share recipes, I am reminded of where I inherited my tastebuds from. If you guessed my mom, you’re right. I remember when my grandson was smaller and told me his favorite was the purple box of cereal aka the Raisin Bran ! I was tickled to think my daughter had inherited the raisin bran taste enough to pass it along to the little guy! Peanut butter is well, a worldwide favorite, right? I don’t know a soul (unless allergic) that doesn’t love peanut butter. Again back to my mom… as a kid I remember her keeping a jar stashed in the desk drawer at the church where she worked. We could visit and raid her drawer of p’butter. Well, today we can have it all! Peanut butter AND Raisin Bran in another favorite, the cookie!
