    Danny's Diner's Note:

    Daniel was never keen on baby cereal or other pureed foods. I found this recipe when I was searching for ways to incorporate baby cereal and other iron-rich foods into a finger-food diet for him. They are wonderful! Daniel has one or two each morning for breakfast. To mix things up, I sometimes add a banana or a handful of raisins to the mix. These freeze well, so if you end up with too many cookies, just pop them in a freezer bag and save for later! (I found the recipe at

      These were awesome. I pressed them down so they would be flat. I added a jar of Gerber applesauce to them and substituted whole wheat pastry flour. They are so good. I hope there are some left for the baby when she gets up tomorrow. I have so much infant cereal this is a great way to use and a healthy quick breakfast for my little one.

      I substituted rice flour for flour and used honey instead of molasses. I semi rolled them out and used cookie cutters for different shapes. Very good.

      I just made these cookies and they are DELISIOUS, just as the reviews state, a little crunchy on the outside, though springy and cookie like on the inside. Based on the reviews from other viewers I used the base cookie recipe with the 7tbs of milk instead of 3 as suggested, and only substituted a slightly over ripe banana for the molasses, because that is what I had on hand. Smelled like banana bread while they were baking!!! They took 15 minutes in my oven, pulled out when they started to brown... Then I tasted them and they tasted like banana bread only with out the spice! :-) I have a 15 month old who is sleeping right now so I melted down a dark chocolate bar and drizzled some on a few of the cookies... I don't think I need to buy cookies anymore! Its a great mommy treat too!!! A wonderful use of the excess baby cereal that WIC gave us. I wonder how it would do with Jalapeno and Cheddar, my son loved it in cornbread... hmmm... the base recipe leaves for so many options!!! <br/><br/>Thank you Soooo much for posting this!!!! <br/>Elisa-from Vermont
