  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a very large bowl, mix together the sugar, peanut butter, butter, water, vanilla and eggs until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter. Mix in the oats and raisins, then carefully stir in the cereal. Drop 1/2 cupfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets, spacing cookies about 4 inches apart. Flatten cookies to 1 inch thick.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are lightly browned at the edges. Let stand on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Store at room temperature. I like to put each cookie into a sandwich bag which makes them easy to grab on the way out the door.

I made these for a brunch that included 8 moms and 19 kids -all I can say is that I came home without a crumb. I did save a few at home and my husband LOVED them!! I loved that I could make such a big cookie and the middle actually baked through. I have a few recommendations: I used rice crispies and chocolate chips, use 1/3 cup scoop (made 32 cookies), put them far apart on the baking sheet because they do spread and finally...let them cool on the tray for the full 5 minutes. As a cookie lover I was overcome by temptation and got a few off the sheet too soon and they fell apart. Be patient and wait it out :) Thanks for the recipe...I will definately be making again!

What a disappointment these cookies were.... dry and literally fell apart in crumbs. Don't think they made the cut. Sorry!

I have to say this seems like a great cookie recipe but I don't know why it is categorized as a "breakfast cookie." people, you should not think that this is healthier than a DONUT!! It's a COOKIE! :) Just a friendly reminder from the nutrition police...

WOW! These are great for a healthy snack or breakfast. I changed the all purpose flour to whole wheat flour to make this a much healthier option. You can NOT taste the difference.

A great way to get rid of cereal you're just plain sick of eating with milk on it and a nice change from the usual egg sandwich to go in the morning. Definitely better eaten cold than warm out of the oven. I cut the recipe in half and used 1/2 c. white sugar and 1/2 c. brown sugar. I used skim milk instead of water and used a crispy cinnamon toast cereal. These baked up in no time. You can pretty much use any type of cereal and add whatever you want to make them as healthy or more cookie-like as you want depending on who you're cooking for.

i live in a boys house and we get food donations that always consist of too much peanut butter and cheerios that we can't eat! so this recipe is perfect for that and it turned out well! i omitted the raisins, doubled the recipe and upped the cheerio cups from 12 to 14 (an entire large box). these have just enough peanut butter flavor but aren't as overpowering as peanut butter cookies. one warning though; 1/2 cup size is LARGE, even for 17 year old boys. i'd cut the size down to 1/3 to even 1/4 cup sizes and tell people to take two instead. Love this though and highly recommend!

These were awesome! I made them for us before we went camping. The only thing that I would change is the cereal. I made them a 2nd time using Grape Nuts Trail Mix Crunch and omitted the rasins..Lots better!

Excellent! Aside from switching the cheerios to rice crispies (family preference) I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. I will definitely be making them again. I may try adding a few different things next time; nuts, flax, coconut and maybe cinnamon. UPDATE: Just made these again and used rice crispie, all bran, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, chopped almonds and raisins and turned out fantastic.
