Tips for making healthy no bake cookies
I would recommend spraying a quick spray into the 1/4-cup measuring cup each time you pack in the cereal mixture.
It will 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.
They Taste Like Chocolate Covered Pretzels
I can compare the taste of these cookies to chocolate covered pretzels.
They are seriously heaven in your mouth!
Items you’ll need to make these cookies:
- Large Microwave Safe Bowl (Amazon) – This Corelle 28 ounce bowl is perfect for microwaving ingredients. It’s also a great popcorn bowl!
- Large Rubber Spatula (Amazon) – This set of 3 Di Oro Heat Resistant, Pro-Grade Silicone Spatulas are great for mixing batters, scraping the sides of the bowl, as well as mixing food in a pot on the stove.
- Dry Measuring Cups (Amazon) – Every kitchen should have at least one good set!
- Parchment Paper Sheets (Amazon) – these are pre-cut – 12″x16″
