Grape Nut Cookies

Grape Nut Cookies 50

Recently I bought a box of Grape-Nuts cereal.  Well, I actually bought the store brand called Nutty Nuggets, but so what.

I bought them so I could make this lemon pudding cake.  And I still had a lot left.  So I wanted to make something else with the Grape-Nuts I still had. 

Enter in Grape-Nut cookies!  Ta-dah!

Grape-Nuts have a naturally sweet nutty whole grain flavor and doesn’t that sound like it would be good in a cookie?

Score!  These cookies are great, especially warm out of the oven when they are really soft.  I won’t tell you how many I ate like that 🙂

For substitutions in the recipe below, I used whole wheat flour, Spenda sugar blend and Splenda brown sugar blend.

I recently started using this cookie scoop that’s been in my utinsel drawer for years and I love it.

Why did I not use this before?  It makes scooping out cookies so easy.

  1. I love cereal!! I don’t know if I could choose a fave, but some of the include Wheat Chex, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Maple Cinnamon Granola!! YUM! The cookies look so yummy!!

  2. No way! Grape Nuts in Cookies!!!! That is so AWESOME! 😀

    I love my cookie scoop! It is so easy to keep the cookies the same size! And also makes things go a little faster. 🙂 What size is it? I have a #40 and #20????? aka, I have a medium sized one and a little one. 🙂

  3. Clever idea! I love a slightly healthier alternative to a cookie that is still satisfying.

    I’m loving my TJ’s Maple shredded wheats lately =)

  4. These cookies look so good! I think my all-time favorite cereal is probably Cracklin’ Oat Bran. It was always my favorite as a little kid…which is probably really weird 🙂

    I love Kashi! Special K use to be a favorite but it’s just so full of sugar that I don’t eat it anymore. Love how you made cookies out of cereal. It’s so unique and yummy looking! 😀

  6. DELICIOUS looking…as always. I want to make these and add some raisins 🙂

  7. Mmm those look good! I like using Splenda instead of regular brown sugar too (although the first time I used it I didn’t decrease the amount so my muffins were extra sugary) 🙂

    My favorite breakfast cereal is Rice Chex–the way milk fills the nooks and crannies is delicious!

  8. Excellent! Those cookies look to die for!

  9. Jess says:

    I love honey nut cheerios:)

  10. Oh yum. Those look fantastic. I loved Grapenuts as a kid – no sugar, just plain. My fave cereal right now is Kashi GoLean Toasted Berry Crumble.

  11. These lookpretty good for grape nut cookies! I like how you healthed them up a bit! I love Lucky Charms but I never get to have them. I have to be a “good example” for my daughter and we have enough treats as it is…I should splurge and get a box! She’d love me for it.

  12. OMG, I heart Grape Nuts and those look sooooo delicious and chewy! I’m jealous that they’re so perfectly shaped too. My cookies always come out looking like a hot mess. Usually a delicious hot mess, but still 🙂

  13. These really look yummy! I bet they are amazing right out of the oven.

  14. simplyshaka says:

    I love chewy cookies so much!! I definitely need to try this. I love how I star every singly one of your posts b/c I want to try every single thing you bake 🙂

  15. I love Kashi! I’ve never had a kind I didn’t love 🙂

  16. I love cereal in cookies! It adds a little extra sweetness with the crunch. 🙂

    And I buy store brand cereal, too. No shame! Although my favorite is either Kashi or Special K. I semi-hoard when they’re on sale.

  17. Euniece says:

    hmm ive never had grape nuts cereal before! but from the looks of these cookies, i seems as though i will be trying them out very soon

  18. mmm, i want that cookie tower! those cookies look like they’re be super chewy and moist. are they?

  19. It’s so funny that you have these cookies on your website today because I was just wondering about how they would taste! Thanks for the review! My fav cereal is Kashi anything really but I Love the cinnamon harvest shredded wheat OR mountain medley granola!

  20. OliePants says:

    I have to say that this is pretty much the only way I would eat Grape Nuts. Not that I want to knock it but as a kid I remember the commercials made it look so delicious but when I bought it and poured my first bowl – it was a disaster.

  21. Meri says:

    Oooh these look really good! Lately I’ve been really into cinnamon cheerios and wanting to make some really easy bars out of them. Maybe I could make cookies instead though!

  22. Nicole says:

    Hello! I recently saw your comment on my blog! I dont live in Indy but in Southern Michigan about 4 hours from Indianapolis! 🙂

  23. These look so great! Guilt-free cookies that would probably even be good for breakfast!

  24. These look great! My mouth is totally watering right now!

    I have so many cereal favorites it’s not even funny, but the top two are Kashi Go Lean and Quaker Oatmeal Squares! I made a chocolate pudding once with Kashi Go Lean blended in that was amazing! I found it on
