Monster Cookies

Growing up we made these cookies:
loaded with chocolate chips and M&M's.
They adapt very well to a healthier version -
high protein and high fiber.
Monster Cookies
1 ½ cup peanut butter
4 eggs
1 1/4 cup pureed dried fruit (I used apricots and prunes)
2 tsp. vanilla
½ cup butter
2 tsp. baking soda
3 ½ cups oatmeal
1 cup oat bran
1 cup high cacoa chocolate chips 
1/2 cup raisins

Mix first 7 ingredients.  Add dry ingredients.  Stir in chocolate chips and M&M’s.  Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft).  Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet.  Cool on wire rack.  Enjoy.
