Nutella Peanut Butter Wheatabix Choco Oatmeal No-bake cookies!

It’s all Brian’s fault. He likes Wheatabix Choco cereal. They are, if you’re not familiar with it, a simple wheat cereal with tiny bits of chocolate flavor. These ‘bite-size’ cereals tend to crumble though, and often he’s left with a larger than normal mess of cereal crumbs in each box. What to do??

I made cookies!

Nutella Peanut Butter Wheatabix Choco No-bake Cookies!


50g butter (?3-4 tbsp?)

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup milk

1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup nutella

2 cups Wheatabix Choco crumbles and/or oats (not instant)

In a medium to large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the sugar, milk, and cocoa powder – stir to combine. Stir in and melt the peanut butter and nutella. Stir in the crumbs and/or oats and mx very well. Remove from heat and immediately spoon out cookie-size balls (ping pong ball or smaller) of mixture onto wax paper lined cookie sheets. Allow to cool. Store in airtight container.

They are yummy! :) And unlike other No-bake cookies, from which I adapted this recipe, I cut the usual amount of added sugar from 2 cups to 1/2 cup and let the nutella, PB and cereal sweeten it. The Wheatabix is not a supersweet cereal either, but these cookies are good, and despite making a double batch, they are almost gone!

You won't be disappointed! And I was pleased to find a good way to use up that bag of 'perfectly good' cereal crumbs!
