Whole Wheat Cereal Cookies #SundaySupper


Sorry, I go crazy when it comes to cookies. No self control. None. Big fat zero. 😉 I can eat a bag of Milanos in under a minute. I’m not proud, just saying…

So when I heard that this week Sunday Supper was all about cookies AND we have Janet Keeler, Food & Travel Editor for the Tampa Bay Times and Author of Cookielicious joining us with tips on baking for the Ultimate Cookie Exchange and to answer any of your baking questions. I was super excited!

That’s not all.

Wait for it.

Wait for it.

Bang! We are giving away 5 signed copies of Cookielicious with 150 fabulous recipes to bake and share!


My contribution to the #SundaySupper virtual cookie exchange is one of my Mom’s old-fashioned recipes 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 and I was pleasantly surprised! Move over oatmeal, make room for wheat flakes again!

Whole Wheat Cereal Cookies

  10. I am right there with you with the lack of self-control when it comes to cookies. This sounds like it would be an interesting cereal to try with that last bit of crushed up cereal at the bottom of the bag that for some reason no one will eat. :)
