I’ve been wanting to make homemade granola for awhile now but I either didn’t have all the ingredients or I ended up making something else. I went shopping with one of my sons last week and we came across Pillsbury’s Red Velvet Cookies in the refrigerated section. Immediately my son wanted to try them so I obliged and he put them in the cart. At first he thought we could make some trifles with them but as I continued to wander down the aisles I had a great idea. Why not make Red Velvet Cookie Granola? I’m so glad we did!
This Red Velvet Cookie Granola recipe is so easy to make, even your kids can do it. It’s a one bowl recipe and you’ll be eating it in under 30 minutes! For the most part, my family ate the granola all throughout the day, a little handful here and there, but we also tried it as a cereal. This would be perfect for Valentine’s Day morning because it turns your milk pink and the kids get to eat cookies for breakfast. Not an everyday occasion but I’m sure they’d love it!
Last year for Valentine’s Day I made Red Velvet Cinnamon Buns using Betty Crocker’s Red Velvet mix and they turned out so well that I was excited to try the Pillsbury’s Red Velvet cookie mix for this granola. Since we’ve already ate all of this granola and it’s not even Valentine’s Day, I think I need to come up with some more recipes for my family.
Some ideas I have are these Valentine Cookie Pops, these Chocolate Chip Heart Cookies or this Raspberry Mousse Brownie Pie. Whichever one I choose I know my family won’t complain! They love dessert just as much as I do.
