Every kid loves a treat in their lunch box…so give them one you can feel good about!  Pack these up in reusable plastic containers from Family Fare, and they’ll stay fresh for your little one.

3 Eggs

1¾ cups packed light brown sugar

¼ cup granulated sugar

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. vanilla extract

1½ cups crunchy peanut butter

½ cup butter, softened

1 cup chocolate chips

¼ cup golden raisins, optional

2 tsp. baking soda

4½ cups rolled oats

Preheat oven to 350 degree. In a very large mixing bowl, cream the eggs and sugars together with an electric mixer. Add salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. With a spatula, mix to blend well. Add chocolate chips, raisins, baking soda, and oats. Stir until everything is combined. With a tablespoon, scoop up cookie batter and drop onto cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand about 3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.
