I LOVE this dough raw!! ;) This recipe is easily cut in half. I have also made them with Crispix cereal (I was out of Cheerios) and added a handful of Mounds Coconut to them... really good either way!

These cookies are fabulous!!!! Very tasty, a lot of flavor going on with the peanut butter and chocolate chips, not to mention the cheerios. Made the whole recipe, used a small ice cream scoop, it made about 65 cookies. Pressed the tops down a bit before baking. I like my cookies crunchy so I cooked them a bit longer. They were a big hit with the kids as well as the adults!

Made these over a week ago, but am just now getting a chance to review! I halved this recipe, left out the peanut butter, and crushed the Cheerios (Multi-Grain, btw). The first batch or two ended up way overdone, so I think I ended up turning the oven down to about 350, and only baked the rest for 8-9 mins. After that, they turned out much better, and even my fiance likes them - and he usually has major issues with different textures in his food, and hates oatmeal. While I won't be buying Cheerios just to make these, I will probably still make them again when I have Cheerios in the house.

Delicious cookies! Made to use up some Cheerios that had been in the cabinet for a while. Even though the Cheerios were a bit stale, the cookies were fantastic. I made a half recipe and they went quickly between the house and offices! Thanks for posting!
