  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar

  3. Chill dough for 1-2 hours.
  4. In small bowl, combine remaining 1/4 cup ground cereal, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon and chili powder (if using). Using tablespoon to measure, form balls of dough and roll in cinnamon-sugar cereal mixture.
  5. Place about 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Press down lightly with a glass. Bake until cookies are set, about 8-10 minutes.
  6. Transfer cookies to racks to cool completely. Store in airtight container, up to one week.
