Birthday Party Oreo Cookies

A bit late to the game, primarily as this is the first time I have seen them, however we have finally got there and it’s time to try the new Birthday Party Oreo. To be fair the British Oreo track record isn’t that great so my expectations are pretty low.

Thanks to this family run business, who have perfected their secret recipe, we can now bake these cheesy balls…

Setting aside the fact this is aimed at kiddies aged 5-13 years old, I was all over it when I saw it was Banana Granola.
