In this post I’m going to give you the recipe for these delicious Cereal Chocolate Cookies.
And what’s even better is that they’re Weight Watchers friendly.
Only 4 SmartPoints and 3 Points Plus Value per cookie.
As you can see from my pictures, they are delectable.
I’ve always loved anything sweet and salty with a crunch and these cookies fit the bill!
They’re so ridiculously easy to make that you can whip them up in no time and have them on-hand as a snack for when you have that sweet craving and just need something sinful, without the guilt.
As I tried the first cookie, I was amazed at how tasty they are!
Then I tested them out on my picky son.
He LOVED them!
I didn’t tell him that they’re Weight Watchers friendly.
I don’t have to feel guilty letting him eat a few as a treat.

I would recommend spraying a quick spray into the 1/4-cup measuring cup each time you pack in the cereal mixture to make it easier to drop the cookies onto the parchment paper.
This recipe, which I got from my Cooking Light Magazine, says that it makes 15 cookies.
Mine made more like 18 cookies.
But if I had packed each 1/4 cup serving more tightly, it might have ended up being 15.
I can compare the taste of these Cereal Chocolate Cookies to chocolate covered pretzels.
They are seriously heaven in your mouth!
