5 Grain Butterscotch Cookies

5 Grain Butterscotch Cookies. A delicious team up of hearty 5 grain cereal, coconut oil and butterscotch morsels. These cookies are filling and SO good, playground ready and kid approved! Pack them up for your next picnic, hike, playgroup outing or summer party!

It’s almost Memorial Day week-end! I love May. So full of promise for fun family events and outdoor living. I tend to get out of the kitchen this time of year. I’m very busy with the grand kids playing outdoors, gardening, and the weed killing projects right now. My cooking drops significantly and the family eats a lot of grab food. These cookies offer quick, filling bites of energy.

I took these delicious butterscotch bites along to the playground the other day and my grand kids and their friends all LOVED them! In my mind there is no better taste testers than a group of kids. They are honest and so diverse in their taste preferences. I am truly excited by a recipe that pleases a whole group of busy kids! I only had enough for one each, and that was enough to keep them going for an hour or so at full speed. These would be great for high energy expenditure sport treats! Soccer anyone?

Butterscotch is a fun flavor that makes a nice change-up from our old standard chocolate chips. I don’t think the butterscotch melts quite as fast either, an obvious plus for summer time adventures. This 5 grain cereal adds in some nice fiber to keep these cookies filling, the coconut oil keeps the fat healthy, very digestible and we love the flavor it adds to baked goods. Yay for coconut oil!

Great for high energy treats, lunch box snacks, pot-lucks or parties.  Let me know in the comments how you enjoy these delicious cookies!
