Kashi Cookies

No matter how you cut it, a cookie is a cookie is a cookie. You're going to get things like flour, sugar and fat in it. So if you can make one that has at least some healthy redeeming qualities it can only be an improvement, right?

I made this recipe up this week when I wanted to use up the last of the large box of Kashi cereal I had bought at Costco a couple months ago.

I used Kashi "Go Lean Crunch" cereal which is a protein and high fiber cereal. Has has twice the protein and the fiber, which helps you feel full longer, keeps your digestive system running smoothly and helps balance blood sugar. Of course the sugar in the cookie is going to neg legate that little nutrient fact. LOL.

This a light, crumbly cookie with fabulous flavor and makes a good 'coffee' cookie. Small children may not care for it as much if they are only used to chocolate chip cookies as there is (thankfully) no chcolate in this one. Just a crisp delicious 'light' cookie, perfect for summer coffee or brunch.
