It's been a longtime pattern in our house that we end up having a quarter of a bag of each kind of cereal sitting in the cupboards. Perhaps we get bored of them after a while, I'm not quite sure. I've found a great way to get more use out of them when they're being ignored is to turn them into cookies. Here, I've used the last of my raisin bran and crispy rice cereals to make peanut butter cookies. They are light, flakey, and hard to resist!


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 30 cookies


  • 3 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups rain bran cereal
  • 2 cups crispy rice cereal


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

  3. In another bowl, mix together the butter, peanut butter, sugars, and egg.
  4. Pour the flour mixture into the wet mixture and stir until completely smooth.
  5. Stir in the cereal.
  6. Make tablespoon sized mounds of the dough and drop them onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, until lightly browned.

Best Peanut Butter Cookies

I like these cookies because they are made with honey rather than sugar, so are not as sweet as the typical peanut butter cookie. The use of the honey also results in a softer, rather than crisp cookie.

I made these for a friend who is infatuated with peanut butter cups. The cookie part of it is soft but holds together beautifully with the peanut butter cup stuffed inside.


Sometimes I come up with a little bit of extra cookie dough, so I bake them into plain old peanut butter cookies, and they are crazy delicious, as well!

You may have noticed a recipe for super easy peanut butter cookies. The recipe calls for just 3 ingredients, egg, peanut butter, and sugar. Well, I tried this recipe on the recommendation of my dear friend, Beverly, and it is outstanding!

My children made and entered these at the county fair one year. Each won the blue ribbon in their respective age group for the "Peanut Butter Cookie" category.

I am looking for a cookie recipe that is a lot like the oatmeal nobake cookies except it has saltine crackers and peanut butter but doesn't have the cocoa. This is a drop cookie.

I have a number of peanut butter cookie recipes. All of them are in the "cookie" state. ie drop cookies or cut out cookies.


Time is short sometimes and I have adapted one of the recipes for a sheet pan.

My Mother's recipe I have found to be the best of course!

Beat until creamy
1 C shortening
1 C brown sugar
1 C white sugar
2 eggs
1 tea. vanilla

Mix then add
1 C peanut butter

2 C flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. soda

Add to sugar/shortening mixture. Drop onto lightly greased cookie sheet in approximately 2" balls. Dip a fork in sugar and flatten slightly making a cross design. Bake 8 minutes at 350 F. degrees. Do not overbake.

Enjoy! My husband always used to have me keep some of the dough raw for him. He has now outgrown it after 43 years of marriage.
