Excellent! Aside from switching the cheerios to rice crispies (family preference) I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. I will definitely be making them again. I may try adding a few different things next time; nuts, flax, coconut and maybe cinnamon. UPDATE: Just made these again and used rice crispie, all bran, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, chopped almonds and raisins and turned out fantastic.

I made these for a brunch that included 8 moms and 19 kids -all I can say is that I came home without a crumb. I did save a few at home and my husband LOVED them!! I loved that I could make such a big cookie and the middle actually baked through. I have a few recommendations: I used rice crispies and chocolate chips, use 1/3 cup scoop (made 32 cookies), put them far apart on the baking sheet because they do spread and finally...let them cool on the tray for the full 5 minutes. As a cookie lover I was overcome by temptation and got a few off the sheet too soon and they fell apart. Be patient and wait it out :) Thanks for the recipe...I will definately be making again!

I have to say this seems like a great cookie recipe but I don't know why it is categorized as a "breakfast cookie." people, you should not think that this is healthier than a DONUT!! It's a COOKIE! :) Just a friendly reminder from the nutrition police...

Interesting texture in these cookies. The cereal becomes kind of chewie within the cookie. I split my dough and tried one half with cheerios and raisins, then rice crispies and chocolate chips in the other. I think we prefer the rice crispies, makes the chewie bits more evenly spread, not big chunks like the cheerios. I also made them 1/4 cup in size. Makes a great sized cookie.

I just tried these cookies tonight and my kids were going nuts over them!! "can I lick the bowl mum? how about the spoon?" "they smell scrum-diddly-umptious! can we eat them now mum?" I let them have a half of one each and I think I'll be getting begged for them again!! lol Anyway... I used choc chips instead of rasins and I used half oat rings and half rice crispies! fabulous result!! delish!!! Also - next time I'm going to swap 1/2 a cup of butter for 1/2 a cup of honey...

I followed the recipe exactly only cutting it in half. I also made the cookies 1/4 cup each. The thing we did not like about them was the cheerios became these sort of hard nubs to bite into....not sure I'd make these again. The idea is a good one for a quick out the door breakfast but....

WOW! These are great for a healthy snack or breakfast. I changed the all purpose flour to whole wheat flour to make this a much healthier option. You can NOT taste the difference.

These cookied were great!! I have been trying to find something healthy for my soon to be 5 year old to take for breakfast with her on the bus (she gets on at 7am this fall). The kids and husband loved them! I too used puffed rice cereal as I had no oat rings in the house. I also used 1 Cup of applesauce in place of the 1 Cup of butter and I used 1/2 Cup white sugar and 1/2 Cup of Splenda instead of the full 1 Cup called for. They turned out great! I only got 15 cookies though so I guess next time I'll try to make them a bit smaller. Over all very nice cookie and a great breakfast for hungry kids.

i live in a boys house and we get food donations that always consist of too much peanut butter and cheerios that we can't eat! so this recipe is perfect for that and it turned out well! i omitted the raisins, doubled the recipe and upped the cheerio cups from 12 to 14 (an entire large box). these have just enough peanut butter flavor but aren't as overpowering as peanut butter cookies. one warning though; 1/2 cup size is LARGE, even for 17 year old boys. i'd cut the size down to 1/3 to even 1/4 cup sizes and tell people to take two instead. Love this though and highly recommend!
