    I just made a batch of these to eat tomorrow. I thought they were okay. It should be a good a good on the run breakfast. My wife thought they were too grainy (Grape Nuts). I suspect my three-year old will enjoy having cookies for breakfast.

    I have no idea what 'grape nuts' are but I can't wait to try these with the cornflakes. The combination of ingredients sounds weird enough to work.

    I will give it a try, very different. Also I like the idea of the sausage instead, maybe some ground up breakfast sausage with a maple flavor.

    I love grape nuts cereal in cookies. I used to do an icecream cookie sandwich using grapenut cookie dough base with m&m's; brickle bits and they served them at the restaurant on a pool of melted ganache. I was the off-site baker for 10 Beach Drive, St. Pete for a time. Made their cheesecakes, alternating flavors. But the cookies were the biggest hit.

    The margarine should be room temperature. Just act like you are making cookies. I throw it all in the mixer.

    I am going to change the margarine to butter though - I hate margarine and hadn't realized that it still said margarine in this recipe... my soap box

    This was so much fun (part of the fun was just from telling people I was making a cookie with bacon)! One question...should the margarine be cold, room temp, or melted? I creamed it with the sugar and it seemed to work. Now that I've reread the directions, I would guess it should me melted? I might cut down on the amount of sugar next time.

    I'm taking them on a road trip this weekend - I'll let you know the reaction from my masses.

    Make a double batch of dough and freeze it. Then, when you want a few cookies, just cut off a few slices and bake (yes, from a frozen state). The grape nuts give the cookie a really nice crunch.
