chocolate-cornflake haystacks

Anytime I have a box of cereal open, it sits on the counter forever…case in point, a box of cornflakes I bought in January to help test a recipe for a friend. It’s still there on the counter now (and shockingly not stale!), even though I depleted the inner bag by a bit making Chocolate-Cornflake Haystacks. These are little crispy, chewy mounds of cereal, coconut, pecans and raisins (you could swap these add-ins for others, if you’d like) bound together by egg, agave and melted milk chocolate. They’re pretty sticky to scoop out raw, and I was concerned that they wouldn’t hold together, but they were just fine when baked. They’re good little snacky cookies and it’s not hard to eat a couple at a time.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. It’s also here. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and please join us if you haven’t already!

Tuesdays with Dorie DC: Breakfast Biscotti

breakfast biscotti

My month of baking with granola continues with these Breakfast Biscotti. These are chubby and crunchy and the perfect small treat for dunking in your coffee, tea or hot cocoa. The recipe contains pretty much all my daily breakfast usuals: granola, oatmeal, dried fruit and almonds. If it called for a couple of pancakes to be stirred into the mix, too, then I would really never need to eat anything else in the morning again. These weren’t hard to make, and I thought that they might crumble when I sliced them because of the granola chunks, but they held together quite well. I love how nicely biscotti keep, since a batch makes a lot of cookies. That said, they may keep, but they don’t last– I did half a batch over the weekend, and they’ll be totally gone by tomorrow.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. It was also Dorie’s #cookiesandkindness selection for the month of October, so you can find the biscotti recipe on her site, too. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and please join us if you haven’t already!
