This post is very special to me because these cookies were inspired by my Grandma Joan. I always think back to my childhood, when she would bake us the most delicious recipes, and these cookies were one of my favourites. I think back then, she didn’t give them much thought- they were just an easy, tasty cookie recipe that worked every time. But to me, they were magic. The thought of putting cereal in cookies was so crazy, because we only ever made classic chocolate chip. But the Special K adds an extra crispy crunch that makes every bite so delicious!
Although her recipe wasn’t vegan, it was actually very easy to veganize! Basically, I just swapped regular margarine for vegan margarine (Becel brand), nondairy milk for dairy milk, and omitted the egg!
My grandma Joan is one of my favourite people in the world. Her sweet smile, infectious giggle and big hugs are what I always look forward to when I see her. She inspired so much of my love for cooking and baking, which I am forever grateful for! I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we do.
