Cereal Cookies - no bake!

Originally published 3/26/14, slightly updated 9/8/16

This is one of those recipes that's simple, easy, and kids love.... If I am in the mood to make cookies but am limited on time, this is perfect! (Aside from no-bakes, of course.... those are my favorites!)

It's something Mama's been making for ages, and I don't even know where she originally got the recipe. The back of a Cheerios box, probably. To be honest, you don't even have to use Cheerios. (Although I always forget they are called Cereal Cookies, and call them Cheerio Cookies....) I've only ever used Cheerios, so I can't say how other cereals work with it, but I would imagine there are plenty of others that work well too.

Remember, comments are love! Let me know if you try them!
