This cookie recipe was inspired by my Angel Food Cake Mix Cookies recipe that we recently shared! It got me to thinking...a lot of people like using cake mix in their baking!
And while we didn't make our Fruity Pebbles Cookies with cake mix, it did give me the fun idea of creating recipes for cookies made with cereal!

This is the Equipment you will need to make our recipe
To make our pebbles cookie recipe, you will need the following essential baking supplies. If you don't have these items in your kitchen, you can click the links to purchase the items directly from Amazon.com!
- Cookie Sheet (also known as a Baking sheet) - Cookie sheets are great for making everything from cookies (duh) to cooking all sorts of appetizers and whatnot. I even use a cookie sheet to make my Sheetpan Ranch Potatoes recipe!
- Parchment paper - I always recommend If You Care brand because their parchment paper is coated with silicone, unlike most parchment papers that are coated with Quilon, which contains heavy metal that can leave toxic trace elements in your food and baked goods.
- Mixing Bowls - This includes 1-qt, 1.5-qt, and 2.5-qt round glass bowls. This is the perfect set for all manners of prepping, baking and home entertainment!
- Measuring Cups - I prefer a measuring cup set so that I can multitask when baking.
- Cooling racks - cooling racks are an essential for bakers because they allow our baked goods to cool faster than sitting them on a counter. These allow cooler air to circulate UNDER your baked goods as well as on top.

Instructions for How To Make Fruity Pebbles Cookies
Whether you are a kid at heart or just have a serious sweet tooth, this recipe is sure to satisfy. The fruity flavor of the cereal combined with the sweetness of cookie dough makes for one delicious combination. Plus, they are so much fun and easy to make - so even if you are not an experienced baker, you can still get in on the action.
Before we started on making this recipe, you are going to preheat your oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Begin by mixing together the all purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda and the finely crushed Fruity Pebbles cereal. Then set this mixture aside while you are working on the next step of our recipe.
Add your room temperature unsalted butter and the granulated sugar to a large mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer until you have a fluffy mixture. This step should take you about 3-5 minutes.
Add your eggs and the pure vanilla extract and beat them together until they are completely combined.
Next, you are going to fold in the whole cup Fruity Pebbles cereal. Now, refrigerate the cookie dough for 30 minutes.
Bake for 15-17 minutes or until cookies just begin to brown on the bottom.
Add the dry flour and Fruity Pebbles cereal together and beat the mixture just until it is combined.
Use ⅓ cup measuring cup & press cookie dough into cup. Drop 6 cookie dough balls on prepared cookie sheet, press to flatten until about ½" thick.
Remove from oven, let stand 2 minutes on baking sheet before placing on cooling rack to cool completely.
Hint: I placed the Fruity Pebbles cereal into a resealable sandwich bag and crushed them with a rolling pin. I then poured that crushed cereal into a measuring cup so that I had 2 cups and then I added that to the flour.

Top tip for serving our Fruity Pebbles Cookies
While these Fruity Pebbles cookies are absolutely beautiful all on their own, if you are going to be serving them at a family dinner, I recommend scattering a little extra Fruity Pebbles on your serving platter for a bit of dramatic effect!
How to store leftover Fruity Pebbles cookies
You can store any leftover Fruity Pebbles Cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days. I like keeping all of my sweet treats that I make on the dining room table in a glass cake stand. It looks so pretty and they are always just within arm's reach! If you have children in the home, I recommend putting them out of reach - because they will quickly disappear!
You can also freeze these cookies for up to a month! Just make sure that you let them thaw at room temperature for a few hours before taking a bite!
FAQs about our Fruity Pebbles Cookies
Different types of sugars affect the texture because they absorb different amounts of water. Moisture is the key! White sugar creates crispier cookies and brown sugar creates chewier cookies.
While Fruity Pebbles and Fruit Loops taste similar, Fruity pebbles are made of rice and Fruit loops are made with wheat, corn, and oats.
