Cereals (which we usually associate with breakfast) are actually a great ingredient to use in cookies and dessert bars. They add an interesting taste and texture and in some cases a bit more fiber to your diet. I’ve just done a video of Rudolf’s Christmas Cookies made with cornflakes.
You may remember this recipe from last year. These Holiday Cookies were such a treat, I had to make them into a video!
Making dessert/snack bars out of granola seems to fool everyone into thinking that this must be a healthy sweet treat. It may indeed be a bit healthier, because of the added fiber, but it is still dessert.
Generally speaking, I have found that the recipes on the boxes of almost any prepackaged foods to be very good and reliable. They have been tested repeatedly before they make it to the box.
I love reading cereal boxes in particular. There is always a recipe on the box to make bread or cookies or used in some way to make an ordinary dessert, special. An old favorite was with Grape Nuts. You would make individual servings of vanilla pudding, layered with sliced bananas and then a layer of Grape Nuts that were mixed with butter and brown sugar. It was delicious! (I wish I could find that recipe!)
What’s your favorite cereal (cookie!)?
