As you can imagine, I loved Cookie Crisps cereal when I was growing up. There really wasn’t a cereal I didn’t like. I still love combining a few of my favorites into a bowl and pouring some almond or coconut milk in it as my late night snack or breakfast when I haven’t prepped anything else. There is something comforting to me about cereal. It is convenient, delicious and healthy if you choose the right one.
Now Cookie Crisps clearly aren’t the healthy go-to cereal I am going to recommend you purchase at the grocery store, but I will recommend making your own Cookie Crisps! Particularly this Almond Butter Cookie Cereal. It is made with less than 6 ingredients and is free of dairy, refined sugar and flour.
Almond Butter Cookie Cereal is so easy to make, it will only take you 20 minutes from start to finish before you can pour into your favorite cereal bowl and drown it in your milk of choice.
I wanted my Almond Butter Cookie Cereal to be crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside and exploding with almond butter flavoring in every bite. I definitely think the mission was accomplished here.
I used my go-to Barney Butter Bare Almond Butter in this cereal. It is so smooth and easy to mix with other ingredients, not to mention it is the creamiest almond butter on the planet. Everyone thinks it’s peanut butter when I show them the consistency! It is unreal, just look at these Almond Joy Overnight Oats from last month. Barney Butter is also is made in a facility that doesn’t process peanuts for all my peanut allergy readers out there – run (don’t walk) and go buy a jar for yourself!
I first came across homemade Cookie Crisp cereal from ImmaEatThat who made Peanut Butter Cookie Cereal that is to die for (as are most of her recipes!), and just had to try my own recipe after. I mean just look at that bowl of Almond Butter Cookie Cereal..
