Homemade Cereal Bar Cookies Video Tutorial

Homemade Cereal Bar Cookie | Once A Month Meals | Freezer Friendly | Kid Friendly We have had many a person comment that their cereal bar cookies were good but crumbly. I have mulled over the reasons in my mind many a time and haven’t come up with a common problem in the recipe. I have even gone over the recipe several different times to see if I can find an error. When all else failed, I decided to make a video so that you can see the ingredients, process, and techniques that I use to create my cereal bar cookies. I am NOT a baker and have made at least 5 batches without a problem.

Here are a few things that you should keep in mind:

  • Use BUTTER don’t substitute margarine. There is a chance that if you are substituting margarine that they aren’t holding up as well because of it.
  • It doesn’t matter whether you measure whole oats and then grind or measure already ground oats. I have done it both way with equally good results.
  • Well ground oats are easier to work in then whole oats.
  • You can grind oats in your food processor, blender or magic bullet if you don’t have a mill.
  • Work your dough until it is one giant ball before proceeding to dividing among muffin tins.

    Ok your dough looks more wet then mine.. I did everything you did but my dough was more flaky. Hmm maybe because of the dry weather up here in the cold? Thanks for the video

    Thank you for doing this video. I was one of the ones who had a problem with them being crumbly. I watched the video and made them again tonight and they came out so much better!! Thank you for taking the time to make the video because I think these bars are an awesome snack. Bringing them to my son’s class tomorrow for snack!! Thank you!!!

    I first glanced over the recipe and read the butter as 1 stick. But you used 2. You might want to correct the recipe to say 1 cup or 2 sticks. I know that I often read a recipe too fast and can miss those details.

    This was disappointing. I did everything you did in the video and they came out either cracked with the filling spilling out (which was not the case when I put them in the oven–there were no cracks)or all crumbling. I made sure to spray the cupcake pan with cooking spray and they still stuck. I thought maybe that I needed to let them cool longer (after I had already let them cool for 20 minutes)so I waited even longer and they still wouldn’t come out in one piece. I’m going to try one more time and then I’ll probably go back to buying Nutri-Grain cereal bars. They make them without HFCS now.

    Hello Tricia!
    Thank you so much for the recipe. I did the cookies for my daughter to take to school this week. It was delicious and more important healthy!
    Greetings from Istanbul!

    Could you use jarred baby food fruit puree as a filling or would that be too runny?

    • Lisa says:

      Sonja – That might work. I would suggest an “older” like #2 or #3 puree so that it would be a little thicker! Let us know if it works out!
