Hey there friends. Are you excited? We are!!!!
Awhile back we made this super cool recipe. Well we think it is pretty cool.
We have this hunch that we are not alone when it comes to loving cocoa puffs. Didn’t we all grow up love seeing our milk turn into chocolate milk? Not that we did that or anything.
Homemade gluten-free (and egg-free option) cocoa puffs cereal.
We admit we loved cereal growing up.
We actually kept eating cereal through college. But for some reason after college we pretty much stopped cold turkey. Once we changed how we wanted to eat. Goodbye sugary, processed cereal.
Until now. Thanks to coming across this recipe where we got our inspiration.
And now we can enjoy our cocoa puffs once again that remind us of our childhood. And eating cocoa puffs is cool
Plus having any excuse to have chocolate at breakfast is always nice.
And like our banana bread we made these homemade cocoa puffs with a hemp protein gluten-free flour blend mix to make them protein packed grain-free cocoa puffs!
Warning these are highly addictive. Great as a little fun snack, dessert and of course breakfast if we say so ourselves. Pretty much can eat the whole batch. Not saying that happened.
Notes about these cocoa puffs: we made these cocoa puffs one with an egg and one without. And they both turned out great! We also played around with doing all cocoa which really makes it feel like the original. And we also wanted to see what would carob powder do, so we did another version half cocoa and half carob. And that too came out amazing!
Another note: these do get softer over time. Store in an airtight container. We kept ours in the refrigerator.
We are already thinking of so many other childhood recipes we can make with more upgraded ingredients. Hang tight friends…cereal lover friends… we will be back with more. For now go enjoy some homemade cocoa puffs.
Twins question: Are you a cocoa puff cereal fan? What is your all time favorite cereal?
What cereal would you like to see us make gluten, grain and/or egg free?
till next time,
