Grape Nuts Cookies

I had a box of grape nuts cereal that I wasn’t eating very fast in the traditional way with milk, so I found another way to use them.  The resulting cookies are very much like your typical oatmeal cookie, but extremely chewy and they have just the slightest bit of crunch from the grape nuts.

Since they have cereal in them they are one cookie that’s totally  OK to eat for breakfast, right?
