Expert Tips

  • Use a cookie scoop to keep your cookies the same shape. Cookies bake best when they are the same size, shape, and spaced evenly in the oven.
  • For more breakfast cereal inspiration - take a look at these fun and delicious recipes. These Peanut Butter Honey Crunch Cookies also use peanut butter but feature three types of cereal instead of just one! We also love this delicious and easy recipe for No-Bake Chocolate Cereal Drops that uses a classic bran cereal.
  • Once the cookies are cool, store in a food-storage plastic bag or airtight container at room temperature up to one week. If you decide to freeze your cookies instead, store them flat in a freezer-safe container for up to three months.
