Colds and Cookies

We've been celebrating the change in the weather by coming down with the cold + fever that Katherine brought home from school on Thursday. Daddy ran out to the store for supplies this weekend and came home with *gasp!* sugar cereal (or "dessert cereal" as it's known around here) as a special treat. I felt myself coming down with the cold on Sunday, so I dug out a cereal cookie recipe given to me by a lady from our church. Yesterday I pacified the children with the cookies while I lazed around on the couch. Yes, I know they have no nutritional value, but they got us through the day. Don't judge me.

Confetti Cookies

1 package of dairy-free yellow cake mix
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup water
1 egg
3 cups Fruity Pebbles

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the first four ingredients with a spoon until blended. Stir in the cereal. Drop by the teaspoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges begin to brown. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

I can envision lots of variations of this recipe with different combinations of cake mixes and cereals.


  1. Those sound fun! Do you have any left to take a photo of?

  2. I managed to pry a few out of the kids' hands. ;)

  3. I'll bet that cereal is FORTIFIED! With VITAMINS! = good for you!

  4. Swistle -

    Yeah! That's what Scott pointed out to me on the box. Also, K. noticed that the word "fruit" is on the box, so there must be some fruit in there. And so began a discussion about artificial flavorings.

  5. I've gotta try these!!! Thanks for sharing!
