“This is a recipe I created with my 4 year old daughter with things we had on hand. The cookies are delicious and soft. She and my 17 month old son both loved them! You can use rice, oatmeal, or mixed infant cereal.”

I made these with oatmeal infant cereal and they turned out great. I spread the batter on the cookie sheet to make bar cookies instead of individual cookies and they are moist and very flavorful. I have lots of cereal to use up since my 10.5 month old refuses to eat it anymore so I will be making quite a few bathces of these!

Good job! I made this one with my kids today and we all loved it. A few alterations turned out to make a delicious and healthy (relatively speaking) cookie. I doubled the recipe (I have 4 kids and a vacuum for a husband). I substituted half whole wheat flour with the all purp, and reduced the butter to 1c. I, also reduced the brown sugar by 1/2, and they were still pretty sweet. Next time I'll probably reduce the white sugar, too. Oh, it really helped to chill this dough before baking, too! I definitly recommend this one.

This recipe is GREAT! My 12 month old loves them and they have some nutritional value that is lacking in so many other snacks! I'm tempted to buy more baby cereal so I can make some more!
