As we head back to school these Raisin Bran Oatmeal Cookies are a great addition to the lunchbox!
Now, how does one go about disguising fiber? Of course in a cookie! My kids need fiber, just like really all of us probably do, but sometimes it’s hard to get them to eat high fiber foods.
I decided to whip up a tasty cookie using the Raisin Bran variety of cereal. They turned out perfectly and my kids ate them right up, not knowing they were getting a little fiber boost too.
These are absolutely perfect to add to a lunchbox too, I decided to add some oats to the mix as well just for a little bit of added nutrition and flavor too.
Now, as we head into the back-to-school routine, it may be a fun little treat to share these cookies with your kids when they get home from school, plus you will know that you are serving them a cookie with nutritional value too.
My kids love to have these in their lunchbox and I’m happy to give them to them too. It’s just a win all around.
We love to mix these up sometimes too and use other cereal varieties, they are even good with the addition of peanut butter as well. My son likes to get in the kitchen and help me out too when we are making these.
I suppose I probably should make some more too because we are exactly a week away from school starting again. Do you start school soon?
I’m ready for a consistent routine but it’s also my daughter’s last year of preschool before she heads to elementary with her brother for Pre-K, so it’s bittersweet too!
It’s just amazing how quickly the years go as a parent. I feel like I just had my daughter and now we are going to have two in elementary school in a year.
Now, let me wipe my tears and head to the kitchen, it’s time for cookies!
