    Step 4: Stir in remaining dry ingredients. The dough should be sticky and begin pulling away from the side of your mixing bowl. Add more cereal or flour if your dough seems too wet.

    Step 6: Bake for 15 min. Bake longer if you would like a crispier result or shorten the bake time if you would rather a softer, chewier result.
