Sometimes mornings can be so busy we barely have time to eat. Cereal is a breakfast staple at our house, but when one of my kids has an early meeting at school, sometimes there isn’t enough time for a bowl of cereal. I like to get creative and come up with fun ways my kids can take their cereal on-the-go. I’ve come up with this yummy Cranberry Orange Breakfast Cookie recipe that is great for those busy mornings. Who wouldn’t love cookies for breakfast? These breakfast cookies are packed with the yummy Post Great Grains Cranberry Almond Crunch Cereal, Oatmeal, Coconut, Orange Juice and more.
We love the Great Grains cereal and that fact that it comes in several flavors like Cranberry Almond Crunch, Crunchy Pecan, Banana Nut Crunch, and Raisin, Dates and Pecans.
You will love this great breakfast cookie recipe, in fact the whole family will love them.
