  • Reviews

  • “These are delicious!I added 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, very good.”

  • “These are wonderful – perfect for a sweet snack or for breakfast!”

  • “Robb, these are FANTASTIC.I made them for a church bake sale and they went over HUGE.When I make them again, I might just add another egg or egg white to get a better consistency for my personal taste.The crunchy Grape Nuts are wonderful with the oats.Such an unusualcombo that lead to great texture.”

  • “Love this recipe! Always a hit when I take it somewhere for sharing 🙂 A soft and chewy cookie with the nice crunch of the grape nut cereal!>br/

  • “The first time I saw this on the back of the Grape Nut box I made it.My family loves it especially by Granddaughter;it is her favorite cookie she is a Mom now and she still asks me to make them for her.They are usually gone in two days”

  • “Not exaclty like I expected but pretty good.I used 2 sticks of butter and 1/2 cup applesauce as another review suggested.I also used the food processor to chop up the cranberries.I think it would be fun to add pecans or cocconut flakes.thanks for posting!”

  • “These were just what I was looking for! I made it even easier by doing it in a food processor. Added all wet and sugars together until creamy, then added flour mix and pulsed until mixed. Then the grape nuts and cranberries and ran on slow for ~30 sec.(helps to break up the craisins a bit). I transffered it to abowl and mixed in the oats. Took maybe 5 minutes to make!! Love all the great textures and how soft and chewy they are. Thanks again!”

  • “we weren”t crazy about this recipe.The cookies taste okay, but the texture of the grape-nuts was what we didn’t like.It is like having eggshells or nut shells in your cookies.The grape-nuts stay very hard and it isn’t pleasant to bite into them.”

  • “My husband will not eat anythign but choc. chip cookies so I traded the cranberries for mini chips.He Loved them!! Said they were award winning!”

  • “I’ve made these before and just made them again.These cookies have a fantastic texture as they are soft, chewy, and crunchy all at the same time. I threw in half a bag of white chocolate chips this time, it really improved the cookie.Plus the red and white really look nice if you are making these for Christmas. I love that this recipe makes tons of cookies; I even made my pretty big and I still got 50 cookies!”

  • “This is a huge hit!I changed it around a bit.I used 2 sticks of butter (not 3 and not margarine), 1/2 cup of applesauce (to make up for the butter), 1 cup of dried cherries, 1/2 cup finely chopped pecansa AND 1/2 cup white chocolate chips.FABULOUS!The grapenuts make the whole cookie heartier than a plain oatmeal.You will love these!”

  • “Loved these cookies!We eat them for breakfast on the go, and they are delicious.The only thing I changed was I added 1 1/2 cups of dried cranberries/dried apples and they were even more delicious!”

  • “Absolutely the BEST oatmeal cranberry cookies I have ever had.A WONDERFUL recipe. Thanks!”

  • “These cookies are wonderful.I bring cookies to work all the time and got numerous compliments on these.The Grape Nuts really set them apart – heart, not too sweet, and you can taste all ingredients.I highly recommend trying these.”

  • “Quite tasty cookies.I love the cruch of the Grape Nuts as well.Pop one in the microwave to just warm up a bit and it is great with ice cold milk.Thanks for a great recipe ReeLani.”

  • “These are the best oatmeal cookies ever.I added some chocolate chips and baked them 1 minute longer.The base is almost toffee tasting and could almost fool you into thinking there were toffee bits mixed in because of the grape nuts.Well done!!”

  • “Yum! To echo previous reviews, these are truly excellent. DH and I agree that this one is a keeper. I did, however, change them quite a bit. In fact, I think I may post my version because it is a little bit more health-conscious (not that these are bad to begin with!). Thanks for the great recipe!”

  • “These cookies are SO GOOD! I just love the crunchy texture from the grape nuts. The cranberries add a chewy tartness that goes really well with the sweet cookie! I did add a handful of grated coconut to mine because I had some in the pantry calling my name! It’s a keeper!*Wanted to add that I froze these to take on a camping trip. After defrosting, these cookies were just as fabulous as fresh out of the oven. The grapenuts cereal kept it’s crunch!”

  • “Great cookies. Very easy to make. i used a medium cookie scoop and they baked up in 9 minutes. Love the crunch from the grape nuts, very filling cookie. Next time I will add a bit more dried cranberries (1/2 cup more) Thanks for sharing this recipe.”

  • “I figured we’d like these but was surprised just how much we LOVED them! We used them as breakfast cookies. A great change from the usual muffins and granola bars. They are good anytime of day though. I got 46 cookies. Thanks so much for sharing this fantastic recipe!”
