Nestum Cookies

nestum-cookies

Cereals are healthy and cookies made with cereals are hot favourites most of the time. This time around, I am using Nestum baby cereals to make the cookies. Don’t get me wrong –these cookies are not meant for kids alone! Nestum is a great food product for adults too. I have reduced the sugar level a little from my original recipe. You can also use quick cooking oats or crushed cornflakes instead of Nestum. Top with chopped glazed cherries or other colourful sprinkles if you want. Cheers to the coming Chinese New Year!
