Cheerios Cookies

DSC_8613 copyToday, as we endure yet another day of rain here in the great state of Texas, I dug out my old recipe cards and found this!  Years ago when my babies were still babies, and they were fond of snacking on Cheerios from the vantage point of their high chair, I found and used this recipe.  A few weeks ago Jet saw a commercial for a Hot Wheels car he HAD to have but it only came in the box of plain Cheerios.  I agreed to buy the Cheerios on one condition:  he had to eat them.  Of course, he agreed!  But here we are weeks later with a half-full box, begging for someone to use them.

I didn’t use coconut this time, opting instead for the peanut butter, but probably should have.  It’s definitely a nice chewy combo when mixed with the crunchiness of the Cheerios.


  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup oats
  • 4 cups Cheerios
  • 6 oz. mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter or 1 cup of coconut


  1. Pre-heat oven 375*
  2. Mix sugar, butter, water, vanilla, and egg.  Stir in flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix in peanut butter.  Fold in Cheerios and chocolate chips.
  3. Bake 10-12 minutes.  Remove and allow to cool on baking sheet for a couple minutes then remove to wire rack.  Makes 5 dozen.
