These cookies are amazing but I wanted to add some grains and cut the fat. By adding some cheerios and kiwi puree I have done just that. They taste great and have vitamins and antioxidants.

  • Cream together the butter, kiwi, brown sugar and white sugar in a large bowl, until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla extract. Combine flour, baking soda, and toasted oat cereal in a bowl; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until light brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Editor's Notes:

Mexican vanilla extract can be found in Mexican grocery stores. If you can't find it, feel free to substitute regular vanilla extract.

The Cheerios and pureed kiwi was an interesting twist so I wanted to give it a try. To be honest I didn't know what to expect after I decided to make this recipe. I happen to have all the ingredients on hand well I had Peanut Butter Cheerios and Chocolate Cheerios so I went with the Peanut Butter. The cookies didn't brown much when I took them out of the oven. I allowed them to cool and tasted and was surprised this is a fantastic cake-like cookie. Read More

I didn't care for the cake-like texture so next time I'll just omit an egg. Love the multigrain cheerio idea though. I may try the peanut butter ones next time also. Read More

I to randomly had all the ingredients i used rolled oats and mine were just a hair on the dry side. But supper easy. I love the kind of recipes that you just mix it all together and bake. They were devoured at my house dry or not. And my 4 yr old just loved helping me make them. Read More
