Back in May when I went to San Diego with my mom and my friend Jen B. and our crazy bobo boys, Jen made some really yummy breakfast cookies for the trip. I'd been wanting to make them myself but always forgot to buy Cheerios for them. The boy isn't really a fan of Cheerios, so they aren't a cereal I normally have on hand. I grabbed a box of Trader Joe's Cheerios-equivalent when I was there last time, and yesterday the boy and I finally made these. The dough was really tasty, and I'm not usually a cookie dough eater.
