What's great about these cookies, is you don't feel as guilty eating them, because they are "healthy." Healthy cookies are kind of an oxymoron, but these feel that way. Plus they were super delicious. I followed the recipe on the box, except for a few additions that I think were key ingredients.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used creamy soynut butter)
1 cup white flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup Hodgson Mill Muesli
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
handful golden raisins
1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2) Mix together the butter and sugar until fluffy. I tried to use this new pastry cutter I have, because I have yet to use it... but that didn't work so well. A fork really just worked best.

3) Mix in the egg and vanilla.
4) Add in the soynut butter, and stir thoroughly.
5) In a different bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and muesli mix
6) Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix. Add in the chocolate chips and the raisins.
7) Place tablespoon size clumps onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes.
8) Remove the cookies when they are slightly golden brown. I let them cool just a little bit, then place the cookies in an airtight container. I also place a piece of bread with them. For some reason, this really helps keep the cookies soft!
