Cereal Cookie Recipe

Man, do I have a treat for y’all today! This recipe comes straight from my Grandmother. For those of you who have met my Grandmother, you know she means business in the kitchen. Kat and I stopped to visit my Grandmother on the way to the beach this year and after dining on a delicious spread that could have passed as a royal feast, she sent us on our way with a batch of these cookies. She calls them cereal cookies but I call them drug cookies. The addiction struggle is real. I’m embarrassed at how many I ate before we actually made it to the beach….

1 | Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients in the order given and blend well.

Don’t shoot the messenger. When you’re addicted to these as well, I’ll be sure to pass along my Grandmother’s number and you can take it up with her. Happy Thursday!
