Chocolate, oat and cereal cookies



Do you always end up with a pile of crumbs at the bottom of your cereal box that no one wants to eat?

I decided that I need to make use of these crumbs, so I turned them into some tasty cookies - also using up some Chocolate milk powder (Sustagen) that my girls used to drink but decided they no longer like! 

Here's what I used (rough measurements)
135g weetbix (Cereal) crumbs
150g currants
150g oats
6 rounded spoonfuls of Sustagen (chocolate milk powder)
200g butter or margarine
150g golden syrup or honey

Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl:

Melt the margarine/butter and syrup/honey in a pan.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, then roll into balls and flatten onto baking trays.

Bake at 180C for around 15 mins.
Then enjoy with a nice cup of tea!

I also tried a few of these just rolled into balls and put in the fridge to set rather than baking them - they were a big hit! Really tasty.


I'm trying to reduce our food budget just now - and using what I have in the cupboards and pantry is a part of this.

Do you have any recipes for left over cereal crumbs? Please share if you do! These are really tasty cookies but I'd love some alternative recipes to try too!

    1. Thanks PC. They were a big hit - just waiting for more crumbs so I can make them again...I have to say I'm tempted to just crush some of the weetbix to make crumbs...He He!
