The only bad thing about these cookies is that it's impossible to eat just one or two. They are not too sweet, and the bacon adds the most amazing flavor. I have made these with all white flour, half white/half whole wheat, and all whole wheat flour, and all tasted wonderful.

When I came across this recipe I just had to make them. Had no clue what these would look or taste like. Surprisingly good. The cookies are not sweet and taste like granola with bacon. I made them with whole wheat flour and real bacon. Read More

Taste is okay but they completely flattened out to make one giant "cookie" on the cookie sheet. I made these to use up some cornflakes I won't make them again. Read More

These were surprisingly good! I made them exactly to recipe. My 10 year old twin boys and 16 year old daughter all liked them a lot! I had doubled the recipe because I had a half pound of bacon to use up. Definitely go with real bacon! I have enough for the kids for breakfast for the next few days! Read More

The recipe did not say melted butter. In the picture the corn flakes look broken up. I melted the butter and did not smash the corn flakes. I used unsalted butter the recipe needed salt. I can see the need to lower the sugar. I like the crunch and bacon. Read More

Surprisingly good! I left out the sugar entirely and used Frosted Flakes instead of corn flakes. Just the right amount of sweetness and the bacon flavor really comes through. I will make these again! Read More

Very odd when you're expecting a cookie to taste bacon and cheese savory flavors but good once you adjust.:) Read More
