This recipe for breakfast cereal cookies has quickly become one of the kids’ favorite snack recipes! It’s a recipe that’s a little bit different from the standard chocolate chip or sugar cookie.
Honey Bunches of Oats Cookies
We’ve been enjoying Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch cereal for the past week but we have a problem. There’s only a cup left in the bottom of the cereal box.
Normally, that wouldn’t be a problem for us but this time it is because my son and I both want it.
We have come to an agreement. I am going to make cookies out of the last cup of cereal. That way everyone can enjoy it.
Honey Bunches of Oats Greek Honey Crunch cereal mixes crispy whole grain flakes and two crunchy granola clusters made with real Greek yogurt.
Honey Bunches of Oats ingredients
So, this cereal is a lightly sweet cereal that combines that crunch of crispy flakes of whole grain with lightly sweetened, Greek yogurt covered clusters of granola.
The cereal is sweet enough to be attractive to my son but not so sweet that I don’t enjoy it too. I love that it has 33 grams of whole grains per serving.
That makes it a super-easy way for me to get whole grains into my son’s diet. Plus, it provides 12 essential vitamins and minerals and 5 grams of protein per serving.
The next time you have leftover cereal leftover, use that last cup in this delicious snack! The hard part will be making sure that you have some leftover.
Can I double this recipe?
Yes, you can make double this recipe if you like. Just be sure that you have a large enough bowl to mix all of the ingredients and a strong enough arm.
Other recipes using cereal
So, if you love breakfast cereal cookies as much as we do, you might want to try a few different recipes in addition to my Honey Bunches of Oats cookies. So, here you go. Enjoy!
Check out this muffin recipe. It has cranberries, chopped apples, and raisins. That means it would be an amazing choice for breakfast when you can’t get away with eating a few cookies. Get the recipe here.
We love no-bake recipes especially during the summer when it’s too hot to put the oven on. You can get a no-bake bar recipe from Domestic Superhero.
It looks easy to make and has a layer of melted chocolate on top. Check it out here.
If you want a snack recipe to put into the kids’ lunchbox, why not try a granola bar? This Honey Bunches of Oats granola bars recipe from Oh Sweet Basil would be the perfect option.
It uses the cinnamon version but you could easily use whichever version of the cereal you have. Get it here.
What other cereal can I use?
Of course, you could try this Honey Bunches of Oats cookies recipe with another type of cereal if you can’t find this in the store. You can also buy it from Amazon if you want to. Grab a box here.
Cascadian Farms has an organic Honey Oat Crunch cereal that would work. Special K has a variety of cereals that have flakes and crunchy bits. You could try those as well. But, I would probably opt for the vanilla flavor rather than one of the berry flavors.
Can I freeze these cookies?
Of course, we don’t usually have enough leftovers to freeze. But, if you want to freeze then, you certainly can. Just place them in a freezer container.
Separate the layers with wax paper or parchment paper. And, freeze up to six months. Make sure the container seals tightly or they will absorb the odor from other foods in the freezer which won’t be good at all.
