A few months ago I made cocoa puffs and they were good. Yes, the kids knew they were not the real things, but still they ate them and enjoyed them.  How can you complain when you are allowed to eat chocolate for breakfast?

Cookie Crisp was another one of my FAVES as a kid.  I’m pretty sure we never had it at our house, but my cousins always did. We probably ate the entire box each Saturday morning while watching cartoons.

We all want to say, yes, go ahead, have cookies for breakfast…{makes for a much more peaceful morning don’t you think}

Homemade Cookie Crisp Cereal


  • 1 cup of Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free Oats {processed into flour}
  • 1/3 cup of Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup of ground flax
  • 2 - 3 tbsp sugar {depending on how sweet you like your cereal}
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp softened coconut butter {you may sub coconut oil}
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of chocolate chips


  • add the ingredients {in the order above} to a food processor
  • pulse until the dough starts to form a ball
  • {the dough may look crumbly, and that is fine}
  • on your work surface, press firmly into a ball
  • roll {again pressing firmly with the rolling pin to keep the dough together}
  • cut into small circles {a piping tip works great for this - using a toothpick to help ease the dough onto the baking sheet}
  • bake on a parchment lined {this is VERY important} sheet for 10 minutes @350
  • cool, and store in an airtight container
  • {will keep longer in the fridge}


**so that COOL little dough cutting trick – NOT mine I found it on Purely Twins

{I’m not nearly that clever}

But  I did manage to make a cereal that is DELICIOUS, and now the kids can have cookies for breakfast.
