Joyce Sanders from Selman City, Texas, was looking for a recipe for a cookie that she loved when she was a teenager made with Grape-Nut flake cereal. She said the recipe came from the back of the cereal box. Now she wants to make them for her own family.
Evelyn Osteraas from The Sea Ranch, Calif., sent in a recipe that was given to her by her sister in law that uses both Grape-Nuts and Grape-Nut flakes. She says everyone in her family enjoys these cookies and it's easy to understand why. The cookies are wholesome and very delicious. This is one you can feel good about putting in your kid's lunch any day.
* Gaila Droegemeier from Centerton, Ark., is looking for recipe for an oatmeal cookie that she got from Weight Watchers years ago. It was made without oil or sugar and used applesauce.
