And that's good enough for me!
Growing up I loved Sesame Street and watched all the time. My third birthday was even a sesame street themed party. I can't believe that the show has been on the air so many years and today kids are still loving and growing up with this show. Anyways the reason I am talking Sesame Street is because as I was making these cookies all I could think of was this is a type of cookie that the cookie monster would love. It is filled with peanut butter, M&M's, oats, and chocolate chips. Kids love these cookies and they are fun to make. But remember boys and girls, "cookies are only a "sometimes food." ;)

1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup raisins, optional
