Bottom of the Box Biscuits (Breakfast Biscuits!)

Bottom of the Box Biscuits (Breakfast Biscuits!)

I aspire to be an organised and efficient Mummy. Sometimes I am just rubbish though. And I read blogs and mess about on Pinterest whislt I should be feeding my children breakfast before school. And so this biscuit is brilliant - it's a mobile breakfast! I made a batch yesterday morning - perfect for dolong out all week...)

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
3 tablespoons orange juice ( I used the juice and pulp of one whole orange)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups plain flour (or wholemeal)
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups of cereal (Sultana Bran, Buds, Cornflakes, Rice Bubbles, Just Right – whatever you have…all the leftover bits from the bottom of the cereal boxes…)

Preheat oven to 200`c.
Cream together sugar and butter.
Beat in egg, orange juice, and vanilla.
Sift in the flour and the baking powder, stir well to combine
Stir in your cereals to combine
Drop onto ungreased baking tray and bake at 200`c for about 10 minutes
Allow to cool a little and then transfer to cooling rack.

Store in an airtight container and dish them out for breakfast if you are running around late....or for morning tea. Or for lunchbox treats...

Last week I was lucky enough to attend another brunch with Kelloggs and Brand Meets Blog. I was given all sorts of boxes of cereal to try. Hence I had to find a recipe to use up all of our old faves! I ♥ Kelloggs, I really do. They are a class act. It was a wonderful opportunity to stretch my marketing and Mum brain, and sensational to get together with a charismatic bunch of Adelaide and Perth bloggers. They did not ask me to write any of this. I just like to.

  1. This is a fantastic idea Lucy. Sometimes I have trouble getting Miss 3 to eat breakfast in the throes of the morning rush and these would be just perfect!
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I have seen breakfast cookies before but they always seem hard work - this I can (and will) do

    When my 8yo stopped eating weetbix suddenly a few years ago I had just bought 2 boxes in the sales so searched online - you can make great muffins with cereal too!

  3. YUM! The cereal in there would help make them nice and filling :)

  4. women after my own heart, use up the cereal that never gets finished!!

  5. they look delicious, Pinterest and cookies, awesome!

  6. Thanks for another great post Lucy! I have to turn out another post for Good Apps and my friends tell me that carbs are great brain food because the brain requires a lot of insulin. I plan to make these today. I need all the help I can
