I’ve been pinning a lot of cupcakes and big slices of cake on Pinterest this week and I can tell you that both are super popular right now.
So what do I go and bake, knowing that cupcakes and cake drawing masses to my boards? Cookies! But not just any cookies, cookies that are a bit healthier and totally delicious. I’m sure they don’t look as sweet as a big piece of cake, or a cute overly frosted cupcake, but they are worthy of a gazillion pins too.
What makes these cookies healthier? Walnuts, dried cranberries, coconut, and grains. Okay, maybe I could have left out the white and semi-sweet chocolate chips but what fun would that be?
I decided to call these Kellogg’s Cereal Cookies because I couldn’t think of anything more fitting because that’s what they are loaded with. No, I’m not getting paid to write this post for Kellogg’s, nor did they provide me with the cereal – I just like it enough to blog about it. For a quick second, I thought about calling them Everything But The Kitchen Sink Cookies.
These cookies are chewy and buttery with a little crunch. They compliment a good cup of coffee that’s for sure.
