Cinnamon toast Crunch Oatmeal raisin cookies

For those that have read my blog for a while, it’s no secret that I’m a HUGE cookie fan!!

Normally when I’m craving a sweet treat, it’s hardly ever a slice of cake, a piece of pie or a square of sorts.

Almost always … I’m craving a cookie!!

Don’t even think about asking me which cookie is my favourite?!? I love them all & am fully against cookie-ism!!

With the cooler temperatures fast approaching, and even getting a slight sighting of flurries last weekend ( seriously … WTF mother nature?!?! Calm down!!) – I know cookies of all kinds will be creeping all over the internet very soon.

These particular cookies, are the perfect mix of warm fall flavours of cinnamon and childhood memories!! I remember endless weekend mornings, sitting by the television watching cartoons with my favourite sugar cereal in hand – whether it be Fruitloops, Trix , Fuity Pebbles or count chocula (my parents were clearly health food advocates!!)– nothing could beat Cinnamon Toast Crunch. To this day, I keep a box on hand – and it’s still probably one of my favourite movie snacks!!

So, of course – I couldn’t leave well and good alone. I had to throw them in cookies. Actually … I made cinnamon toast crunch mature – I added them to oatmeal raisin cookies … of all the cookies in the world – is there any one more adult than an oatmeal raisin one?!?!

I.think.not.

… that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. Even though it may sound like a bunch of mammer-jammer!!

Let’s make some cookies!!
