CHOCOLATE CEREAL BISCUITS



Cereals are a  great ingredient to add in cookies and dessert bars. They add an interesting taste and also a bit of fiber in your diet.

If you have a large box of uneaten cereal, I recommend you to bake a small batch of cookies to test whether this is acceptable to your kid. Later on you can double or triple the recipe if your kid favored  them.

Here is my basic recipe using nestum but you can fiddle around with it to fit your own taste.

CHOCOLATE CEREAL BISCUITS
Yield   :   40 biscuits

125g soft butter
1 and 1/2 C  all purpose flour
3/4 C brown sugar
2 TB  cocoa powder
1/2 C  breakfast cereal (I use nestum)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Almond slices for decoration

METHOD

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy.

Combine flour, nestum, cocoa and baking powder in a mixing bowl.

Now add the butter mixture to the flour and forms into soft dough.

Pinch the dough into small ball, flatten and dot with almond slice.

Preheat oven @ 160 C. Place the cookies onto baking sheet.

Bale for 20 minutes and let sit in the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer onto rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container.

Perfect! Every summer after my parents leave from visiting, there is always boxes of cereal left in the cupboard. Super way to use it up.

yummy and crunchy cookies, a perfect recipe to use the neglected cereal :)

Fiber being added is more a matter of the type of cereal you use -- some of them are nothing but sugar and sugar and more sugar.
