packed brown sugar
bran flakes cereal
raw Spanish peanuts
Excellent Cookie to use up the Bran Flake crumbs no one wants. I didn't use shortening - used butter instead for the flavor - and used raisins instead of peanuts. I also used half whole wheat flour since my flour is always mixed! Yummy, and Chewey
I also used half white, half wheat flour. I used butter, but the cookies spread too much, so next time I'll use shortening. The cookies also got hard very quickly in storage, but can be softened up quickly in the microwave. These are yummy cookies with a hint of peanut brittle taste that no one guessed were healthier than regular!
