Red River Cookies/Cake – Base

So I’ve tried making cookies with this recipe and cake.  Both turn out well.  This recipe doesn’t make sweet cookies or cake so if you’re looking to use up the leftover Red River cereal and want something sweet, you’ll have to add sweetener, sugar, honey, maple syrup or whatever it is you’re wanting to make it sweeter with.   It would probably do well in a loaf pan as a “bread”.   I find it very nice with Betty Crocker French Vanilla icing.


  • 2 c. all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 c.brown Splenda
  • 2 medium mashed bananas
  • 1 1/4 c. cooked Red River cereal
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. almond extract


Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.  Mix the remaining ingredients.  When everything is mixed, if you want to add chocolate chips (or butterscotch etc. chips), shredded coconut, raisins, almonds or whatever, fold them into the batter now.


Pour batter into a greased pan.  Bake at 350 C for about 45 – 60 min.   Check doneness periodically after 40 min.


Drop a tablespoon of batter onto a cookie sheet and leave about an inch of space between each.  Repeat until there’s no more room left.  Bake at 350 C for about 20 min.
