(Gluten Free) Brownie Mix + Cereal = Fun Cookies

The other day, I was browsing the Betty Crocker website and I found this cookie recipe that sounded fun to make.  They are brownie cookies with Cinnamon Chex in them, and the combination of chocolate and cinnamon flavor is surprisingly delicious.  I was hoping the cereal would add a nice crisp crunch to the cookies, but it added more of a chewy crunch which wasn't my absolute favorite, but I would definitely still make these again.  Plus my boyfriend, the recipient of most of this batch, liked them so perhaps yours will too...

Cookie Ingredients:
  • 1 box Betty Crocker gluten free brownie mix
  • 3 cups Cinnamon Chex cereal
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla
  • 1/4 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chip

Glaze Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I did 1/4 because I love cinnamon)
  • 3 teaspoons milk

Cookie Directions:
  • Heat oven to 350°F.  Grease cookie sheets.
  • In large bowl, mix cookie ingredients with spoon until blended.
  • Drop dough onto cookie sheets by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set.
  • Cool 2 minutes then remove from cookie sheet.  Cool 10 minutes before glazing.

Glaze Directions:
  • In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and cinnamon.
  • Stir in milk until smooth.  If necessary, add additional milk 1 teaspoon at a time, until glaze reaches drizzling consistency.
  • Drizzle cookies with glaze.

I enjoy these cookies because the glaze makes them look a little bit fancy while the ingredients are fun and unusual.  Could these cookies be a metaphor for my life?  Yes, yes they could.

Happy baking!


  1. Yum Laura!!
    I am thinking of making something with Chocolate Cheerios- not gluten-free but chocolate!

  2. Every one should have a cookie metaphor for their life.

  3. These were very good. I enjoyed them immensely.
