good day to all you cookie monsters!

As promised, here’s another version of those great breakfast cookies that I had up several months ago!


1-1/4 C br. sugar
1/2 C butter flavor shortening (keeps them soft!)
1/2 C crunchy peanut butter (I also love using chocolate peanut butter from Henry’s if you have one near you!)
1/4 C cold coffee
1 egg
1 tbsp. almond extract or pure vanilla
1-1/2 C whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
1 C 9 grain cereal (or old-fashioned oats)
1 C dried cranberries
1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 C Kashi Go Lean Crunch

Pre-heat oven to 375 (350 if you have a convection)

In mixer, cream sugar, shortening and peanut butter.  Add coffee, egg and extract.  In a separate bowl mix the flour, oatmeal, salt and soda.  Stir into creamed mixture.  Slowly stir in cranberries, chips and Go Lean.

Drop onto ungreased cookie sheets by either 1/2 C or 1/3 C measures.  Flatten so that they‘re 1” thick.  Bake 13-15 minutes-check after 10 though in case your oven is off.

Very important!!!  Let stand on sheets for 5 minutes before removing.  Cool on racks and store loosely covered.  

I usually get about 18-using the 1/3 C measure.

Love it
