Honey Bunches of Oats Cookies

A woman and two teenagers working together in their kitchen to make a recipe with the Honey Bunches of Oats box on the table.

Cookies are a perfect treat for a quick, sweet fix. They’re an easy vessel to grab and go, and even easier to grab a few at one time! Still, it’s easy to get into a “cookie rut” and use the same recipe over and over again. Why not shake it up and throw some delicious Post Cereal into the mix?
