Raisin Bran Crunch Cookies are filled with Raisin Bran Crunch cereal, coconut, and pecans. Wouldn’t you rather eat
The way I do breakfast is weird.
At least that’s what my husband says.
I like to eat the same cereal every morning. For years it was Frosted Flakes. Then one day I woke up and decided I was tired of Frosted Flakes and moved on to something else.
Now I eat Fiber One every day, mixed with other cereal, so it doesn’t feel like I’m eating twigs. My current mix-in is Raisin Bran Crunch. Love that stuff. Avert your eyes from the nutrition label on the box for maximum enjoyment.
Cereal in cookies?
Since I already eat enough carrots to turn my skin orange, I decided to replace the carrots with Raisin Bran Crunch. They turned out as yummy as I anticipated. My husband loved them too.
What to expect from Raisin Bran Crunch Cookies:
When these cookies are hot, they have the texture of a scone. You know, soft on the inside, crispy on the outside. Wait until the next day when the flavors settle in and get comfy. The result will be a soft but chewy cookie.
These are so good, I’m thinking of giving up Fiber One and just putting 2 or 3 of these cookies in a cereal bowl and calling it breakfast.
