Double Oat Breakfast Cookies

Well seen as it is raining today...which I was NOT aware of, so much for passing showers! A and I decided to try these breakfast cookies that have been on our menu for 2 weeks now and have been neglected do to the extreme heat and humidity! A is my helper when it comes to baking...he runs the kitchen-aid mixer. Hopefully both boys will love them seen as they involve one of their favorite breakfast cereals!

Double Oat Breakfast Cookies-adapted from What a Crock!
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup applesauce
1 banana*
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup raisins or chocolate chips
3 rounded cups cheerios

Preheat oven to 375. Cream together butter and peanut butter. Add in banana, applesauce, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Mix until combined. Add in water and mix again. Combine flour and oats and add it to the mix. Fold in cheerios and raisins/choc. chips. Place by 1/4 cup spoonfuls onto baking sheet and slightly flatten. Bake for 12-14 mins until golden brown.(The original says 10-12 mins but mine took longer to cook!)

*you can use 1 egg in place of the banana, I just had a very ripe one needing to be used!

**These were a very chewy cookie with a crunch from the cherrios. The boys loved it...perhaps next time I may leave the banana out. It was ok but it seemed to overpower it. Still good and filling though!
