vanilla puffs cereal recipe

Howdy luvs!

We are beyond thrilled from the response we received from our cocoa puffs and loved hearing your favorite cereals! More on that at the end of the posts.

Now that we have you drooling over cocoa puffs we had to create a vanilla based one for those that aren’t fans of chocolate. Hard for us to imagine. 

Just like our homemade cocoa puffs these vanilla puff cereal is gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free and nut-free.

We know right?

It happened.

For real.

These are so cute. Tasty too!

Just as addicting as the chocolate based ones. These vanilla puffs are small but very filling. Don’t let these little guys fool you.

We did get a few request about the serving size on the cereals and honestly hard to say as you all know we are not big fans of counting calories. Macros yes, haha, but we eat a lot so our serving sizes might be bigger than some of you. Or maybe not. But if we had to give an amount we would say any where from 1/3 -1/2 cup would be a good serving size. Like always listen to your body. 

In these vanilla cereal puffs we used our own gluten-free flour blend using perfect fit protein to add in a little boost in protein.

You can use any gluten-free flour blend of your choice. We have given some ideas here.

What is it about these cute little puffs that make us so happy. Brings a big smile to our faces.

Like we are kids all over again.

vanilla puffs recipe

vanilla puffs recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour blend (we used some brown rice protein in our blend)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 egg or flax gel ( 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds mix with 3 tbsp water, let sit 10 mins)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, semi-soft
  • 4-5 tablespoons maple syrup (honey or coconut nectar)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Next add ingredients into food processor (or In bowl of a stand mixer) except maple syrup.
  3. Begin to pulse the ingredients.
  4. Slowly add in your maple syrup one tablespoon at a time.
  5. Continue to pulse until the dough is just coming together. It may look like it is too crumbly, but if you put some in hand and roll it should hold together.
  6. If it does not -- add more maple syrup. Should take 4 or 5 tbsp.
  7. Start to take some batter and roll into balls {about the size of a blueberry}. This take awhile to do.
  8. Bake cocoa puffs for 15 minutes.
  9. **Vegan ones we suggest going more like 16-18 minutes.
  10. Let cool.
  11. Enjoy.

These are just so… darn… delicious!

Now you can pick chocolate or vanilla?

Oh how will we ever pick! Thinking of having both :)

    I love this idea! I am sitting here wondering what I could use instead of just rolling them into balls. The only thing that comes to mind is to roll them out and use a pizza cutter to cut them into small squares? brilliant idea, ladies!

    Ladies! Any tips on how to roll these into squares? I tried to make squares but the dough was too crumbly along the edges. Would love your help!

    Hello! Have you tried making this with just coconut flour before (to make is grain-free)? I would imagine it would not get crunchy enough so I was curious if it’s been done before.

    My 4 year old and I made these thanks for the recipe! Just wondering how you store them and how long do they store?

    Thanks again!

    Thank you!! I’ve been hunting for a healthy puff recipe for my 14 month old. I try to make all her food but puffs are nice to have on the go. The only recipes I’ve found have rice or baby cereal, which in my mind defeats the purpose. Excited to try these!

    Hi, this recipe looks great but I just have a quick question. Does the flour blend need to include xanthan gum or can that be left out?
