Cheerios Breakfast Cookies


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!

  1. Heat oven to 375 °
  2. In large bowl, Stir together sugar, butter, Peanut Butter, Water, Vanilla, and egg.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients except Cereal.
  4. Gently Stir in cereal.
  5. On ungreased large Cookie sheet drop dough by rounded ¼ cupfuls 2 inches apart. You know I use parchment Paper!
  6. Flatten dough to about 1 inch thick.
  7. 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!

These are really good and really filling! ** Like a lot of my recipe these can be made Dairy free! Just substitute Dairy free Margarine or Crisco for the butter,**

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!

  4. 5 stars
    I think it would be hard to mess these up! My son hates peanut butter so I substitute 1/4 cup Chia seed gel. Healthy, and really helps them stick together, and they’re still delicious (we also take out half the sugar and replace half the raisins with chocolate chips ?).
