6. Now either let them cool on the baking sheet as dropped, or rub a little margarine onto your hands and begin shaping the cookies into any shape you prefer, balls or flat circles.Breakfast Cereal Cookies how to (8 of 8)

7. Allow the cookies to rest for 4 hours before packing into an airtight container for storage in the fridge. This allows the marshmallows to reset and hold their shape.

Chef Notes

  • If you don’t need this recipe to be gluten-free, try substituting in any of your favourite cereals in place of the 6 cups of gluten free cereal.
  • Can’t find dried peaches, or prefer another dried fruit? Try mixing things up by using dried currants, berries or raisins. You can usually find a wide variety of dried fruits at your local bulk food store.
