Where are all my cereal lovers at?

I am raising both of my hands right now.. Cereals and granola are hands down one of my favorite foods ever. I have always been huge cereal lover. When I was younger it was Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Peanut Butter Captain Crunch, Cheerios, you name it. The only cereal I didn’t like was Frosted Flakes or Corn Pops. I needed those sweet cereals.. clearly nothing as changed 😉

I always wanted to get Cookie Crisps and Reese’s Puffs but my Mom won’t let me (ugh, thanks Mom). I just wanted to eat cookies for breakfast. Obviously now I don’t blame her since that was sugary crap and who wants to give their kids pure sugar?!

As I got older and my taste buds evolved (thanks goodness), I was all about Special K. Literally any variety of it. And the flavored Cheerios. Then I was introduced to granola and my breakfast world got a whole lot better. I remember going to the south of France and they had a granola bar with over 10 types of granola at the hotel. I ate my body weight in granola every morning I was there..

In college, I realized that eating pizza at 1am with my friends didn’t really look good on my tush, I turned to granola and almond milk for my “drunk” late night snack (shocker). Yes, my friends would eat pizza and chicken fingers and I would eat my latest granola or cereal obsession and almond milk. I have been this high maintenance with food since I was 19 😉

But today we are making our childhood dreams home true. We are making a healthier version of two classic cereals. This Homemade Peanut Butter Cookie Crisp Cereal combines Reese’s Puffs AND Cookie Crisps all in one. So for all my mommy readers out there, these are a must try for your kids! I promise they will love them, they’re so delicious and made with all simple goods.

And the best part? This Homemade Peanut Butter Cookie Crisp Cereal is gluten free AND dairy free! Plus they only take 10 minutes to make!

    1. Update: Made these last night and had them for breakfast this AM. Turned out SO good! I had to add a few extra TBSP of oat flour to get the dough where I could roll it, and I baked for 2 extra minutes. Definitely making a double or triple batch of these soon.

  1. You are about to make me a hero to my daughter. When she went gluten free in February, it broke my heart to tell her she couldn’t have cookie crisp anymore. We are totally going to be making these soon!
