LOOKING for: Cookies made with cereal???

eileen_launonenNovember 16, 2004

I want to get my hands on a cookie recipe that I can incorporate my favorite cereal "banana nut crunch"...I thought maybe someone had a recipe where the oats or something could be substituted ...any ideas? I checked Post Cereal site,they have many recipes but maybe one or 2 for my cereal favorite.

Hey eileen!

You might try a recipe that uses Grapenuts...

I found this one but I'm not sure if it would be good with cranberries. Okay, honestly, I wouldn't like a banana/cranberry combination but that's just me.

You may think this is crazy, but anyway, here's something you might consider if you like banana and chocolate.

1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup Rice Krispies cereal
1/4 tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter melted
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (NOT Evaporated Milk!)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1-1/4 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Combine first 6 ingredients and press into 8-inch square pan and bake at 350° F. for 10 minutes.
In heavy nonstick saucepan combine condensed milk, 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Bring to a low boil and cook 5 minutes, stirring continuously. Be careful not to burn. Remove from heat and pour over baked crust.
Melt chocolate chips over low heat. Stir in remaining cereal until well coated. Using two forks spread over caramel layer. Chill and cut into squares.

Jessy, the point of this thread is that Eileen wants to use her favorite cereal which is "Banana Nut Crunch", so that's where the banana comes in. There's no banana right off the tree, just what's in the cereal :-)

Not cookies but I'll bet the Bran Muffins would be good replacing the bran flakes with the Banana Nut Cereal.

I just tried a great recipe, from a magazine and wouldn't you know it, the 2007 magazine got away from me. Am not for sure which magazine, It may have been Country Living, Feb, Or March issue, but could have been Southern Living or Taste of Home or even Kraft too.
Anyway some of the ingredients were Oatmeal, Post cereal, coconut, brown sugar, white sugar, flour, nuts and raisens. If anyone knows what recipe this is
