I was tempted for a while now, to try an old recipe my Mom had marked in her favorite cookbook. It was for Wheaties Cookies. I was never a Wheaties fan, although I used to eat a lot of Total back in the day. Anyway, I adapted that recipe (thanks to my foodie penpal) and I was pleasantly surprised! Move over oatmeal, make room for wheat flakes again!
Whole Wheat Cereal Cookies preheat oven to 375
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups cereal (Uncle Sam’s, Wheaties, Total)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Cream butter and sugar together. Mix in egg. Stir in milk.
Sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Chill dough for 30 minutes.
Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
