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.
- 1/2 c. softened butter
- 1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 c. granulated sugar
- 3 Tbsp. honey
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 c. rolled oats
- 1 c. flour
- 1 c. Grape-Nuts cereal
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add in honey, eggs and vanilla; mix well.
Add baking soda, salt, rolled oats, flour and Grape-Nuts. Combine until just mixed.
Drop rounded tablespoons full of dough, 2 inches apart onto lined or greased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool 2-3 minutes; remove from baking sheets. Cool completely on wire racks.
Makes about 4 1/2 dozen cookies. Recipe from POST.
~~When I made this recipe I halved it. And I used Splenda blend for brown sugar and white sugar. They turned out delicious as you can see!~~
