No Sugar Breakfast Cookies

I loved the idea of this recipe for Breakfast Cookies at Little Momma & Company. It sounded like such a clever way to use up all the odds & ends of different cereals in my pantry.

I wanted to mix up the recipe a bit to cut the sugar and fat, so here is what I came up with:

No Sugar Breakfast Cookies

1/2 C softened butter
1/4 C honey
2/3 C applesauce
1 TSP vanilla
1 TSP Baking Soda
1/2 TSP Salt
1/2 C white flour
1 C whole wheat flour
1 C Quick Oats
2 C flake cereal
1/2 C dried fruit

Cream butter, honey, applesauce & vanilla. Mix flours, soda & salt, then mix dry ingredients into wet. Stir in oatmeal, cereal & fruit.

Bake 8 minutes at 375 degrees. This will make about 4 dozen small-ish cookies.

I found these too dry when they first came out of the oven, but after cooling they were just right. I don't know how that happened!

That's a great idea. How often does someone leave a half-cup of cereal in the cabinet because there's not enough for a full bowl??
