Hello luvs!!!! Happy Friday!
Oh yes we did…thanks to many of you requesting it. We made cinnamon toast crunch cereal.
We have made a few different recipes of these already and enjoying them all. So good. Keep reading to find out how we made cinnamon toast crunch a bit healthier!
Cinnamon toast crunch cereal gluten-free and egg-free. Plus free of a few other allergens. It can also be made grain-free
Plus we added in some perfect fit protein powder to these babies!! Nothing like boosting the protein a little. Now adding in perfect fit protein does make them contain a grain, so we suggest using coconut flour to keep them grain-free or use hemp protein powder (note it will change the final COLOR of the cereal).
And the main ingredient is a special favorite of ours. Bet you guys already know what it is.
Kid parent friendly.
Apparently we are on cinnamon sugar kick. Hey nothing wrong with that, right?
First you need your basic dough. And start rolling it out.
You want to roll it out as thin as you can. The thinner the cereal dough will lead to a more crispy cereal… although there is more chances of them burning some. not that we did that
Once your dough is spread thin. Take a knife to start slicing into mini squares. CAREFULLY pick up squares to place in a bowl to toss with cinnamon sugar. The dough might be a little soft.
All you have to do next is toss them with cinnamon sugar, place slices on cookie sheet, and let them bake in oven until desired crispiness is achieved.
Who knew making homemade cinnamon toast crunch could be so much fun.
Pour with some cashew hemp homemade milk. Or any milk or non-dairy milk of choice.
devour savory every bite.
We found our recipe to be pretty darn tasty for being free of most common allergens. Of course the mix cinnamon and sugar help. But we worked so hard in creating this recipe to be easy and that most people could make.
We also knew that not everyone can get plantains… so we thought of a new recipe meeting that need. You just have to okay with baking your nuts. Using nuts in our cereal recipes does provide more of a crunchy texture.
We try to avoid our nut intake and try to avoid cooked nuts for health reasons. That is why you don’t see us baking with nuts very often. Actually it’s very rare these days. We just rather bake with protein powder over using cooked nuts. Just our opinion. We do love using nuts in our raw recipes.
So we hope you enjoy our second recipe for homemade cinnamon toast crunch that is grain (if you switch out the protein powder or use hemp protein) and gluten free based out of almonds, coconut flour, and arrowroot.
We played around with the plantain free dough and we feel it would work for our vanilla cocoa puffs and possibly our cocoa puffs (just reduce almonds by 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup of cacao). We know we got a lot of request for a grain-free option for those recipes.
We hope this helps with providing some ideas.
Enjoy your homemade cinnamon toast crunch cereal!
