    1 c Post Grape-nuts cereal
    1/2 c craisins or raisins
    1 Tbsp cinnamon

Tips

This recipe is derived from a Post recipe, but the cookies as they make them are a bit Unsweet, and may not satisfy your sweet tooth; so i add craisins or raisins and offset the sugars with some cinnamon, too.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F
Beat oil or butter and sugars in large bowl until smooth.
Add honey, egg whites or eggs and vanilla; mix well.
Add baking soda, salt, rolled oats, cinnamon, craisins, flour and Grape-nuts.
Combine until just mixed.

Drop rounded Tablespoonfuls of dough onto lined or greased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-14 minutes until golden brown.
Be careful not to overcook them, they're nice and crispy at the edges even when you don't.

Cool 2-3 minutes before removing them from baking sheet.
Cool completely on racks.

Store in airtight containers at room temperature.
