You guys? This cereal is so good. It brings back all the best childhood memories. And honestly, it’s not only a million times better than the boxed stuff, but it’s also simple to make. If you can roll out pie dough, you can bake up your own homemade cinnamon toast crunch cereal. Plus…it’s going to be so fun!
cinnamon toast crunch before baking
There was a lot of inspiration from different places for this recipe, so let me walk you through it all.
First and foremost, as a kid cinnamon toast crunch was my favorite cereal (then Cheerios, but I was never that into any other cereals). I’m really not sure how one could not love cinni toast crunch…it’s one of the best cereals out there. If the boxed stuff wasn’t so bad for me, I’d probably still eat it regularly. I’ll forever love anything cinnamon toast.
Two, after making homemadeTwix酒吧, homemadeChocolate Fudge Pop Tarts, and then, homemadeFrosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts, I was left wanting to create more homemade versions of my childhood favorites. Something about quarantine life has left me wanting all the nostalgic foods from my past. Is that weird? I don’t know, but I sure am having a lot of fun creating (and improving) on the boxed foods we all ate (and loved) growing up.
接下来，大多数人现在都在家。你们中的许多人都和你的孩子在一起，他们很无聊。我没有亲自有孩子，但我有我的小妹妹，asher，经常来找我......她很无聊。asher最喜欢的麦片？肉桂多士咬嚼......虽然她从未有过盒装。我的父母只是不再买了那东西了（更正 - asher说她已经在克利夫兰的堂兄弟上了。但我之前的自制版本和asher一直喜欢它。当我告诉她我星期天所做的一切时，她的眼睛随着兴奋而加宽，我们一起烘烤了很多乐趣。所以，我的观点？如果你在家里有无聊的孩子，这是一个伟大的食谱。
And finally, with summer so close, I feel like a bowl of homemade Cinnamon Toast Crunch would be the perfect lazy summer morning breakfast. No cooking, just add cold milk…a chill laid back morning with a bowl of sweet, crunchy breakfast cereal.
Pretty darn close to perfect, right?
PS. dying to know what everyone’s favorite cereal was/is? Are you all about Cinnamon Toast Crunch? What’s your favorite? Please…do share.
At least that’s my hope.
Now, mix up the dough. I like using the食品加工机to easily mix the dough and create the flakiest, crunchiest cereal, but you can simply use your hands as well. Once the dough is mixed, it’s time to roll it out.
The key is to roll the dough pretty thin, I’m talking about the thickness of a quarter. This will give you the crunchiest cereal.
Next, transfer the parchment paper to a baking sheet and separate the squares, spacing them apart. After a lot of testing, I find the method of cutting the dough first and then transferring to a baking sheet to be the easiest, and to work the best.
Finally, you bake. No chilling needed, just bake for a little over ten minutes, the smells are wonderful. You can eat warm, but these are best once cool. As they cool they become crunchy and so delish.
The real question…do they taste like the original?
Well, I don’t know for sure. It’s been a while since I had my last bowl of cinnamon toast crunch, but this cereal does taste really, really good. And if my memory serves me correctly, yes these taste just like cinnamon toast crunch. But Asher says…better. You can really taste the real cinnamon with undertone flavors of vanilla and sweet butter.
And everyone’s second question…can you enjoy this cereal with milk? YES, you can. And it’s beyond GOOD. It’s also great by the handful or when served atop ice cream or even yogurt. The options are endless, but for me, it’s best with cold milk or just by the handful for snacking. What’s your pick?

- 2sticks (1 cup)cold salted butter, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1/2cupcold water
- 2茶匙vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Make the cinnamon sugar. In small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon cinnamon and the sugar.
3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and form into a ball. Divide the dough in half. Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll the dough as thin as you can, preferably an 1/8-inch thick (about the thickness of a quarter). Transfer the dough to a large piece of parchment paper. Brush the dough with melted butter and sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar, gently pressing the sugar into the dough. Cut into 1/2-inch squares. Repeat with the remaining dough.
4. Carefully transfer the parchment paper to a baking sheet. Separate the squares, spacing them a 1/2 inch apart.
5.烘烤12-14分钟，直到金棕色。完全冷却，然后在密闭容器中储存长达1周。Enjoy...with milk, a top ice cream, or simply by the handful.
To Make Gluten Free:Use an equal amount of your favorite gluten free flour blend in place of the all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour. I recommendCup4Cup gluten free flour.
If you don't have a Food Processor:You can use your fingers to mix the butter with the flour until the butter is pea sized. Slowly drizzle in the cold water as directed.
