Cinnamon Toast Crunch, made at home! Enjoy this classic childhood cereal made with good-for-you ingredients. It’s totally vegan and ready in just 30-minutes. The taste you can see!
Homemade cereal is making the rounds on social media, especially on Tik Tok. While I am not a TikTok user, I did notice a viral video of “pancake cereal.” What is this, you ask? Essentially, painstakingly small pancakes (think penny-size) poured into a bowl and topped with milk, butter, and syrup. I guess it’s cute but…I don’t really get it?
Cinnamon Toast Crunch, on the other hand…THAT I can get behind.
While I thankfully did not grow up eating sugary cereals, I can appreciate the merit of recreating a nostalgic food and trying something new in the kitchen. The homemade Cinnamon Toast Crunch recipe is based off of another childhood favorite, Peanut Butter Cheese Crackers! This recipe is remarkably simple to make and ready in just 30 minutes.
How to Make Cinnamon Toast Crunch at Home
First, we start off by adding all of the dry ingredients to a food processor. This helps them incorporate quickly. We’ll then add in some coconut oil, maple syrup, and milk to help bind things together. It will look like a pie dough.
Chilling is optional, so feel free to skip if you’re in a rush. You’ll then separate the dough into two halves and roll each piece until it’s about as thin as a quarter. Top with more cinnamon sugar, bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes, and you’re done! See how easy that was?
Is Cinnamon Toast Crunch vegan?
Classic Cinnamon Toast Crunch contains Vitamin D3, which is not vegan. I do not adhere to a purely vegan diet but saw that this question was being asked a lot online! While I would not consider this homemade cereal a “health food” (I hate that term!), this recipe is made with whole wheat flour for some extra fiber.
More Tips For Making Homemade Cereal†
- Be sure to bake your cereal on parchment paper, not wax paper!
- If you do not have a food processor, I do not recommend mixing this in a blender. Just whisking by hand will do the trick.
- Some ovens run hot or cold, so be sure to keep visual cues in mind when testing to see if the recipe is ready. You want the squares to be golden brown and very crisp.
