I adapted Tish's Apple Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookie recipe to be a little bit healthier for me and thought I would share with all.

These were good cookies. I admit I made a few changes just for my family's preferences. I used natural peanut butter, oat bran instead of wheat germ, spelt flour instead of whole wheat flour, and I ground the oatmeal into a flour because my children do not like the texture of oatmeal in cookies. I didn't use splenda either. I did add in mini chocolate chips instead of the raisins because my kids don't like raisins either. I might try adding chopped almonds next time. I really like this recipe and feel much better about my kids eating this instead of store bought cookies!
