1 cup oatmeal

1 cup high fiber cereal ( I used Fiber One)

1/4 white flour

1/4 white whole wheat flour or 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup wheat germ

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 large egg

1 cup natural peanut butter (I used Smart Balance Peanut Butter)

1/4 brown sugar ( if you like a sweeter cookie you can use up to 1/2 cup)

1/4 cup canola oil ( I used a canola/olive oil blend)

2 tps. pure vanilla

up to 1/4 cup milk

1/2-1/3 60 % cacao bittersweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup dried fruit, optional

raw sugar for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Crush fiber cereal in a zip type bag with a rolling pin. Add oatmeal, cereal, flours, wheat germ, baking soda and salt to a large bowl. Whisk to mix.

In another large bowl whisk together egg, peanut butter, sugar, oil and vanilla.

Mix dry ingredients and stir till just incorporated, dough will be very stiff. Add chocolate chips and dried fruit.

If dough is very very dry, you can add up to 1/4 cup milk

Drop cookie dough in 1 TBS balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

Spray the back of a fork with cooking spray and flatten cookies with the back of the fork in a cross-hatch manner.

Sprinkle with raw sugar if desired.

Bake for 13 minutes. Take out of oven and cool completely.
