"These are delicious alternatives to cold cereal, and kids love them. Barley cereal works just as well. Don't omit the orange peel!"

frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 1/4 cups
wheat and barley nugget cereal (e.g. Grape-Nuts™)
These are excellent little on the go breakfast cookies. I substituted applesauce for the butter and they came out perfectly. I would definitely recommend doing this to get rid of the majority of the fat. I think they'd probably be good with some white chocolate drizzled over the top, but they're still coming out of the oven, so I have not tried that yet. Thanks for the great recipe!
I made them for a Literacy Program that I teach and it consists of children under 3 years and there parents and nobody liked them.
My family love this recipe! hubby included... ;) I used all purpose whole wheat flour to make my cookies and they turned out great!
These cookies were a pleasant surprise-the flavor and texture were delicious-my daughter loved them. We also added raisins to the top. Next time we'll mix in batter. I would recommend this recipe to anyone who has kids.
These are absolutely yummy! The grapenuts give the texture of heath bar, and the orange flavor is absolutely wonderful. I will definitely try subbing applesauce for butter as mentioned earlier so I can share with my husband who cannot have dairy. My kids (2&4) absolutely loved them. Next time will definitely be a double batch! (By the way, they freeze very well!...except they were only in the freezer 2 days because I couldn't control myself!!)
Just tried this recipe and it was great! I added currents and slivered almonds to the recipe and they came out almost too good! Thanks Susan.
These cookies are great! Please try these! However, I suggest using breakshop's raspberry n' cream granola instead of Grapenuts (or anytype of granola - but the raspberries gave a lot of really great flavor - plus, I don't care for grapenuts). I think next time I'll add some fresh chopped up raspberries, too, because I loved the raspberry flavor so much! I will surely make these again - my entire family loved them, and so do I!
These breakfast cookies are really tasty. What a good idea! They were pretty quick
and easy to make, and a great choice for when you need a quick breakfast on the go!
(Almost every day for me). The orange makes the house smell wonderful when you bake
