From My Kitchen: Breakfast Cookies

There are several new-to-us recipes which have quickly become favorites.  I have been meaning to share them for a while, but I never got around to it.  So here they are!  I hope you will love them as much as we do!  I will post them in several posts so that they are easier to find/print.

My kids’ favorite part!!

Breakfast Cookies

My kids don’t really like these, but I sure do!  They are made from crushed shredded wheat cereal, wheat germ, and yogurt.  I used Greek yogurt to add a punch of protein.  They are great in the freezer, and you can just pop a couple out when you need a quick snack.  We opted to forego the cranberries for a little sprinkle of sugar before baking.
