Honey Bunches of Oats Cookies

HBOcookies

We are a cereal loving family. As much as I would like to claim that I bake every morning or prepare eggs and toast, I have to admit that doesn’t happen all the time. At least two mornings a week the kids have cereal before they are off to school. When the opportunity came up to bake up a recipe and write about Honey Bunches of Oats, I gamely came on board. Recipes using boxed cereal have been around as long as cereal has and usually are some of the tastiest recipes out there. I chose to bake up the Honey Bunches of Oats cookies as they were simple, fast and I liked the ingredients.

From the Postfoods.ca website:

• 1/3 cup non-hydrogenated margarine

• 1/2 cup light smooth peanut butter

• 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

• 1 egg • 3/4 cup flour

• 1 tsp. baking powder

• 2 cups Post Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds cereal

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Beat margarine, peanut butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Blend in egg. Add flourand baking powder; mix well. Stir in cereal.

2. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.

3. Bake 8 to 10 min. or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 5 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. HBOcookies1

Honey Bunches of Oats cereal is basically granola clusters and a bunch of delicious flakes with a bit of honey. They made a fabulous drop cookie that we all enjoyed, plus peanut butter in any cookie makes it a favorite! I was interested to see that they are part of the Health Check program and that the cereal actually had less sugar and sodium than a few cereals we had in our pantry. I tend to see cereal as a treat in our household but I also like to make sure that it’s not loaded with sugar and has some nutritional benefits in it! Plus, the ones with nuts would have more protein, something I am always keeping an eye out for in cereals.
