Hey there! Long time no see. I've had a lot of stuff going on. Hubby and I have been out of town, so I haven't had time to blog. Now that I'm back, let's start off with an after school snack that is quick and painless!
Now, this is just a take on the classic Corn Flake Cookies that you had as a kid, but they are a little different to. You see, I used Special K Red Berries to give them a little pop of color, and chocolate chips, well, because I had a small amount of chocolate chips I needed to get rid of.
These literally only take five minutes to make, so you can mix them up before you go to bed, and they'll be ready in the morning. Or, if you're a stay at home mom, you can mix them up and hour before the kids get home from school, and when they come in screaming that they are hungry (I almost always did that, especially as a teen), you'll have them ready.
One other thing, if you don't like bars, don't worry. You don't have to press them in to bar form. You can simply spoon them onto a cookie sheet and make Special K Cookies. I prefer the bars, but to each their own.
So, what do you think? Will you kids love these or what?! Give them a try. I'd love to hear from you!
