An excellent cookie! The cereal in it gives it extra crunch. I used chunky peanut butter, subbed in 1/4 cup of ground flax with the flour, and did not have peanuts so used raisins. Thank you katew for sharing.

Delicious cookies! I doubled the recipe and added a heaping cup of peanut butter chips - I'd recommend making that addition! The texture is really interesting and different, too. I can't wait to take these to my group tonight - they're going to devour them! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Kate! Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag.
