An idea for the kids breakfast! Breakfast Cookies from Fruit Bowl!

My girls will happily eat breakfast every morning during the summer holidays but on a school/college morning I struggle to get half a slice of toast into them. I didn't used to worry too much because they would usually get a snack at break time at school or college but with the new rules, especially at Ellie's school no snacks will be served at morning break time because of Coronavirus.

I have been on the look out and found something which sounds right up my girls street, breakfast cookies! They can take them to school/college or even eat them on the way and hopefully they will fill them up a little until lunchtime.

Fruit Bowl’s recipe for Breakfast Cookies, made with crushed Wheat Biscuits (or a similar alternative cereal) mixed with Fruit Bowl Fruit Flakes makes a hearty cookie with a scrumptious texture with chewy fruit pieces and crunch of the Wheat Biscuits.

Fruit Flake Breakfast Cookies
Makes 8 cookies


50g of light brown sugar.
50g of granulated sugar.
(Combine sugars to make 100g either light brown sugar, granulated sugar, caster sugar, use a combination of what is available)
A pinch of salt.
50g of sunflower oil (or other light coloured oil).
30g of cold water.
100g of plain flour.
¼ tsp of bicarbonate of soda.
3 individual packets Fruit Bowl Fruit Flakes.
2 x crushed Fruit Bowl Wheat Biscuits or alternative


Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan) and line one large or two smaller baking trays with parchment.
In a bowl, mix together the sugars, salt, oil and water with a wooden spoon.
Add in the plain flour, bicarbonate, Fruit Flakes and crushed cereal.
Mix together with a wooden spoon until a dough is formed.
Weigh the dough into 45g balls and place on the lined baking tray/s, leaving enough space for them to spread.
Put in the oven for 10 minutes, then rotate the tray/s and bake for a further 8 minutes.
Allow to cool before serving.

Have your children's school changed what food they will be serving at break or lunch time?
