Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast?  Who wouldn't want cookies for breakfast?!

Here's a recipe I found on http://www.simple-nourished-living.com/.  It's soo good.  Mmm!  And it goes great with coffee :)

Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies
Makes about 2 dozen

Packed with the added punch of protein from peanut butter, these wholesome cookies are satisfying.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/3 cup water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease them.
In a large bowl beat together butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in eggs and water.
In a medium bowl stir together flours, oats, wheat germ, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda. Mix flour mixture into peanut butter mixture. Stir in raisins.
Drop by ice cream scoopfuls (or 1/4 cup measuring cupfuls )2 1/2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until golden but still soft.
Remove from the oven and cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely.

We opted for the slightly less healthy version.  I subsituted chocolate chips for the raisins, or my family wouldn't eat them.  ;)
