homemade cookie crisp cereal recipe – 2 ways

Hey there friends!

Oh let the homemade cereal addiction continue. Shall we? Ok. You don’t have to tell us twice ;)

two ways to make cookie crisps

Since we have you all thinking of your childhood by recreating some classic cereals that we all probably enjoyed growing up…

cocoa puffs

vanilla puffs

cinnamon toast crunch

And today we are going to be adding to that list. We have figured out how to make COOKIE CRISP cereal. Hang on tight friends because we aren’t just sharing one way of making them… but TWO ways! We know. Crazy. 

Gluten-free egg-free dairy-free can be made grain-free cookie crisp cereal.

How cute are these little guys ? Seriously could they get any cuter?

The first way we made them is by rolling the dough out and cutting (using a frosting tip) out the mini cookie crisp into mini circles. Very easy to do, but time consuming. Like our cocoa puffs and yes… totally worth it.

We fell in love. Made these twice already. You know just to make sure they were tasty and purely twins approved ;)

Even better when you get to enjoy them with family and a big bowl of homemade milk.

The second way we made our homemade cookie crisp is by piping them. Again very easy to do and a little less time consuming.  This way provides a little bit lighter feel in the overall texture.

Please make these. Please make these and invite us over!

Here is how we made our homemade cookie crisp cereal.

Allergy friendly homemade cookie crisp roll out cereal.

Ingredients

  • 1 large yellowish plantain (7oz once peeled)
  • 1/4 cup perfect fit protein powder** (or almond meal)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2-3 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, semi soft
  • 3 tablespoons Enjoy life chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325.
  2. Peel plantain and weigh it out to get 7 oz. Roughly chop and place in food processor. Pulse until pureed. This takes a little bit of time to get it smooth.
  3. Once smooth, add in coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and coconut oil. Mix together.
  4. Then dump batter into a large bowl and stir in arrowroot and chocolate chips. Add 1 tablespoon of arrowroot in at time. Add enough to where the batter is not too sticky. Want batter to be easy to work with.
  5. Roll out cereal batter as thin as you prefer.
  6. Once rolled out, cut into mini circles using a frosting piping tip. Carefully pick up circles, we recommend using an offset spatula.
  7. Place cookie crisp onto a parchment lined cookie tray.
  8. Bake for about 30 minutes.
  9. **NOTE: to make grain-free do 1/4 cup almond meal over the perfect fit protein powder.

And a little side note about both these recipes, we used plantain as our “flour” so if you cannot find plantains we recommend using 1 cup of flour. Please note you may need more or less, so start with adding 1/4 cup at a time until you get the cookie dough batter.

Or you can make our plantain free almond meal based cinnamon toast crunch recipe (the second one), and omit the cinnamon and sugar. Add in chocolate chips and make into circles.

Now for the piping cookie crisp recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 large yellowish plantain (7oz once peeled)
  • 1/4 cup perfect fit protein powder** (or almond meal)
  • 2-3 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, semi soft
  • 3 tablespoons Enjoy life chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325.
  2. Peel plantain and weigh it out to get 7 oz. Roughly chop and place in food processor. Pulse until pureed. This takes a little bit of time to get it smooth.
  3. Once smooth, add in coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and coconut oil. Mix together.
  4. Then dump batter into a large bowl and stir in arrowroot and chocolate chips. Add 1 tablespoon of arrowroot in at time.
  5. Place cookie crisp batter into a piping bag and being to pipe little dots on cookie tray. May need a knife to scrap as the batter might be a little sticky when piping dots.
  6. Place cookie crisp onto a parchment lined cookie tray.
  7. Bake for about 30 minutes.
  8. **NOTE: to make grain-free do 1/4 cup almond meal over the perfect fit protein powder.
  9. And if you do not have plantains do one cup of regular flour.

It brings us such joy to be able to enjoy cookie crisp again as it was a cereal we enjoyed growing up.

Twins questions: Are you a cookie crisp cereal fan? Do you like rolling out dough or piping something instead?

till next time,

    Any coconut replacement?

    • purelytwins says:

      Julie well there is really no true replacement for coconut flour, but you could try to do more flour and arrowroot to make up for it. But the second recipe we share does not have coconut flour ;)

    Yum!! Between this and the cinnamon toast crunch I have alot of cereal making to do… Genius recipe as usual!

  3. This was my favorite cereal! I love cookies. Defintiely making these. :)

  4. Piping out the dough is a smart idea! Another method would be to roll the dough into a long thin snake, and cutting it into little pieces.

  5. That was one of my favorite cereals growing up- that and Oat Bran (random, I know!). This looks delicious

  6. Too cool! I can’t believe I totally forgot about Cookie Crisp! I never got it as a kid bc my parents never bought it, but I loved when I slept over at a friends house and her parents had it! Total treat! Gotta try this one!

  7. Oh my gosh!! These are amazing!! I love how cute they are <3

  8. OHhh, I used to love Cookie Crisp (and only got to eat it occasionally at friends’ houses because we never got it). Another cereal I used to LOVE and wish I could remember what they were called – they were filled with fruit, like jelly – strawberry and probably other flavors too – I think blueberry, but I don’t really remember anything else about them, lol.

  9. So genius, never would have thought of making cereal like that! They look so cute, haha. And it sounds delicious.
