In a potato chip bag you’re often fooled into buying half a bag of air. In a cereal box you’re fooled into buying crumbs. No, Kashi, I don’t want to eat your sugar crumbs for breakfast thank you very much!
My latest box had so many crumbs in it. Maybe someone stepped on it twenty times, maybe the plane transporting it went through heavy turbulence, or maybe an evil child in the grocery store shook my box a thousand times. Either way, I needed a way to get rid of it. Obviously I had to made cookies. In the midst of things I actually forgot to add sugar to this batch, but thankfully the cereal made them sweet enough. They came out like little biscuits and I sandwiched some Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter in between- yum! Depending on the cereal you use, I would adjust the sugar accordingly.
1.5 cups cereal crumbs
1 cup flour
1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp white sugar * adjust accordingly
>>Preheat oven to 400F. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Roll dough into balls and press down on cookie sheet. Bake for ~15 mins.
