Our strategy is to make easy, make-ahead breakfast items that can be grabbed while running out the door. This one is a winner in our home because what kid doesn't love cookies?
4 and 1/2 cups granola cereal - divided
1 stick margarine - softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 envelope vanilla instant breakfast drink mix
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Place 1 and 1/2 cups cereal in shallow bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, instant breakfast mix, and egg until smooth. Add flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Beat until thoroughly combined. Add the remaining 3 cups of cereal. Beat until well mixed.
Form into 1 inch balls and coat in the reserved cereal. Place on cookie sheets 2 inches apart.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until firm and lightly golden. Store in an airtight container.
