Labbits Like: 5 Grain Cranberry Raisin Cookies

Pipkin's feeling a lot better and his energy is back, so it's back to the kitchen to make his favourite 5 Grain Cranberry Raisin Cookies, a recipe he's adapted from a recipe on a package of Bob's Red Mill 5 Grain Cereal.

Pipkin mixes 5 Grain Cereal with whole wheat flour, eggs, butter, brown sugar and a healthy dose of cranberries, dark and golden raisins. The 5 Grain Cereal is blend of whole grain oats, wheat, rye, barley and flaxseed. These cookies are practically healthy.

He's left out the coconut flakes and the nuts, wanting a sweeter, more moist cookie. If you'd like the original recipe, pick up a package of 5 Grain Cereal from Bob's Red Mill. It's great for making these cookies, but it's also tasty as a hot cereal for breakfast. To print the recipe below, click here.
