Shredded Wheat and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Shredded Wheat and Chocolate Cookies

What do you do when you buy a cereal for your kids and then they don't eat it?

My answer - I make cookies from it, I used shredded wheat in these cookies, a twist on adding the classic oatmeal and I really like the crunch and savoury tone they gave to the cookies.

I would love to know what you all think of this recipe and what has been the strangest item you have added to cookies?
