The cereal adds a unique flavor and texture to the cookies, as well as providing a healthy boost of fiber and other nutrients. These cookies are also made with whole wheat flour, which adds to their nutritional value and gives them a slightly nutty flavor.
They may also be flavored with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, and besides the raisins, you can blend in other dried fruits, or things like chopped nuts and candy morsels (chocolate, vanilla or butterscotch are all delicious).
These Raisin Bran cookies are a delish (and wholesome) option for anyone looking to add some variety to their holiday cookie tray!
Don’t look now, but your kids are eating fiber.
Kids need fiber. And when they’re eating these delicious cookies made with fiber-rich Kellogg’s Raisin Bran, they love getting it. It’s fiber kids love.

Copycat cooking: Raisin Bran cookies
By CECILY BROWNSTONE – Associated Press Food Editor
DEAR CECILY: My family likes the raisin bran cookies I buy in small packages. They are made without preservatives. I am wondering whether you have a recipe from which I could make cookies similar to these. I wouldn’t always have time to bake them, but should like to do so sometimes. — WORKING MOTHER.
DEAR WORKING MOTHER: I agree with your family that the new packaged raisin bran cookies are delicious. We’ve used the ingredients listed on the package and worked out a recipe using cereal that produces a reasonable facsimile of them. The homemade cookies, of course, cost far less than the bought ones. — C.B.
