On taste alone I would give these cookies a three, but since they are healthier than regular chocolate chip cookies I gave them an extra point. I also don't know how accurate of a review I will be giving as I had to make several substituations and I don't think all of them were equivalent.
First, I have no idea what high protein crisp rice and wheat cereal is or a name brand for it, but I am pretty sure my grocery store doesn't carry it. I substituted Kashi Honey Mighty Bites, which turns out is more like Cheerios. I used 1/2 cup of light margarine. Also, since I already had Splenda for Baking I used 1 cup of this instead of the Equal Spoonful. According to what I found on the web you use both products cup for cup in baking when substituted for sugar.
The cookies were sweet enough, but they were heavy, using the right type of cereal may have an effect on this. My 4 yo daughter had a lot of fun rolling the cookies in the crumb mixture and they are no harder to make than regular chocolate chip cookies. All in all, they aren't bad and if I can find the right type of cereal to use I may try making them again.
