breakfast cookies...

So, these are not actually a nutritious breakfast, but they are the perfect cure for the Sunday afternoon munchies!
These cookies are so delicious! Make them! Here's the recipe!

1/2 cup butter softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 & 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
1 egg
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 & 1/2 cups flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup golden raisins and/or chocolate chips
(I used 1/2 cup golden raisins and about 2/3 cup choc. chips)
3 cups cheerios or value time brand round toasted oat cereal

1. Preheat oven to 375. In large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter on med high speed for about 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, making sure to scrape the sides of the bowl. Beat in water, egg, and vanilla until combined. Beat in flour until combined. Next gradually stir in oats, then raisins, chocolate chips, and finally cheerios.
2. Drop dough onto ungreased cookie sheet (a little less than 1/4 cup of dough makes a nice size cookie). Space cookies about 2 inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes (Joe and I like cookies a little soft in the middle so I cooked them exactly 10 minutes and achieved the perfect consistency, not to brag or anything). Cool for about 5 minutes then dive in and enjoy!
