“Everything” Oatmeal Cookies


A great after-school or after-camp snack.

1¼ cups margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1¼ cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
⅓ cup crunchy peanut butter
1¼ cups flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
1½ cups quick cooking oats
1¼ cups raisin bran cereal
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together margarine and sugars until fluffy. Beat in eggs, vanilla and peanut butter. On low speed, add flours, baking soda and baking powder. Fold in the oats, raisin bran and chocolate chips. Mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake for about 12 minutes. Let set briefly; then remove to wire rack to finish cooling.
