Cereal Cookies

  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dried cranberries, cherries or blueberries
  • 2 cups of high fibre cereal *I used 1 cup All-Bran Original® and 1 cup Fibre 1 Raisin Bran Clusters® which are both excellent sources of fibre, though you can use almost any cereal that you have on hand (preferably high fibre).

In a large bowl mix together oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until it is a smooth sandy mixture. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add in dry ingredient mixture. Stir in dried cereal and fruit. Drop by tablespoons onto greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven at 350° F  for 9-12 minutes or until edges are slightly golden. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Makes ~ 3 dozen cookies.
