So far we have “Snack”urday, and our weekly meal deal. I was trying to come up with another good, “I can’t wait for it” day. How about Tide you Over Tuesday. Just a little recipe to Tide you Over till the big meal deal.
I went out into the garage and cleaned and organized (as best as I could) my big grocery shelf. Saturday I cleaned out my pantry. So, at least now I know what dry goods I have. I don’t even want to dive into the freezer yet. My hubby found a lone Klondike bar yesterday and asked if there was more. I said, “I don’t know? Do you want to clean out the freezer?”
He said absolutely nothing. I am guessing that means no. So, that will be an adventure for another day.
I am planning on getting the kids out of the house bright and early tomorrow, because it is too hot to do anything outside during the heat of the day! I was trying to figure out what they could have for breakfast besides the thousands of poptarts that I have accumulated this week. In my cleaning I realized I have way too much cereal in my stockpile. So, I searched for a recipe for something I could make with Cheerios.
These sounded the best!
Cheerios Breakfast Cookies
- 1 ¼ cups sugar
- ½ Cup Butter or Margarine Softened
- ½ Cup peanut butter
- ¼ Cup Water
- 1 TBSP Vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 ½ Flour
- 1 Cup Oats (old fashioned or quick cooking)
- 1 cup raisins
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 3 cups Cheerios Cereal
- Heat oven to 375 °
- In large bowl, Stir together sugar, butter, Peanut Butter, Water, Vanilla, and egg.
- Stir in remaining ingredients except Cereal.
- Gently Stir in cereal.
- On ungreased large Cookie sheet drop dough by rounded ¼ cupfuls 2 inches apart. You know I use parchment Paper!
- Flatten dough to about 1 inch thick.
- Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. Store loosely covered.
*Tips* For a softer cookie let dough stand or refrigerate over night.
These can be made bigger! Original recipe called for ½ cupfuls of dough. These cookies were huge! Way to big for the smaller kids. If you have teenagers it is worth a try!
I am thinking that with the peanut butter, raisins, oats and cheerios, it may not be a bad breakfast for a diet. It would certainly fill you up until lunch!
Check in Thursday for this weeks Meal Deal!
