Peanut Butter Trix Cookies

Surprisingly, peanut butter with Trix cereal, made into a cookie, is very tasty! At first, while I was reading the recipe, I thought it was crazy, but after trying it out, I learned that I should never doubt a recipe again! This cookie is perfect when you have cereal in your house. For a different flavor, you can use your own favorite cereal instead of Trix. Follow me on this blog for more blog updates! Enjoy!

7 Tablespoons softened butter
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1/2 Cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
1 Cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup Trix Cereal, crushed with rolling pin (or other cereal)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until well combined. Beat in peanut butter until combined then beat in the egg and vanilla.
  2. In a large bowl mix the flour baking soda and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients on slow speed. Add in crushed cereal until just combined.  
  3. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. With the tines of a fork, press gently forming a criss cross shape over tops. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until baked to your liking.
