Best Oatmeal M&M Cookies

This is a special recipe for Oatmeal Cookies that includes raisin bran or corn flakes cereal, M&M's, chocolate chips, and optional ingredients coconut and chopped nuts.

There's something in there for everyone!

I've made these cookies many times through the years and each batch is always a little different from the last because I use whatever ingredients I have on-hand at the time.

And, the whole wheat flour really gives a nice and distinct flavor to these cookies.

Feel free to use any type or corn flake or bran flake cereal you have - they're equally good with or without raisins!
