I was in the mood to spend some lazy time in the kitchen. I wanted to make something that didn't require too much thought or work but created something fun. Both of my daughters, Jenna and Jaelyn, requested time with me to bake, so we came up with this recipe to appease both their tastes. I like the consistency of Red Mill hot cereal, and it's not processed with fillers and added sugars like popular name brands. It also holds up well in the baking process and gives a nice texture to cookies.

" Forget the fact that the United States Department of Agriculture says kids younger than 6 who eat lots of chocolate take in 6 percent or less of what's allowed by law.
