Ooops I did it again
(I played with your heart), I played Martha with a homemade recipe. Wait no. Martha would make this cookie crunch cocoa puffs homemade cereal from scratch. I, however, think that saving time in the kitchen is kinda more important than made from scratch status. Heck, my idea of made from scratch is using gluten free bread for crust in quiche. WINNER!
Anyway, today… oh today, we make homemade gluten free cereal. From cookies. Actually, from some soft and chewy gluten free chocolate chip cookies. Soy free, nut free, yet tastes bakery made (how do Udis do that?)!
After we make this homemade cookie cereal, we can pat ourselves on the back and say “Job well done. This is delish! Oh my gosh, my childhood favorite cereal made healthier and gluten free! Heavens yes!” Sound good? Excuse the run on sentences. I’m kinda excited to relive the cereal obession!
But let’s be real here. I’m sure most of you have some sort of sweet blissful treats, cookies, or chocolates around your house post Valentines Day. Yes? Good! Cause that’s how we’re going to make this cocoa puffs homemade cereal.
You see, my husband (and myself) have a serious Udis Chocolate Cookie obsession. Soft, chewy, and perfect with almond milk. In fact, that man will devour the whole bin in one sitting and forget to share. He’s got that major sweet tooth, remember? Good thing I love him.
Well, in order to STRETCH this sharing of this cookie fetish, I decided we needed to repurpose those cookies. I gave him one cookie then blended up the rest in a cookie flour.
Then I combined that with just 3 other ingredients (dark chocolate cocoa included) and made this cookie crunch cocoa puffs homemade cereal batter. I do not lie, unreal good! But try not to eat it before you bake it, just sayin…
After you make the batter, you add in a touch more gluten free or coconut flour, roll into mini bite size cocoa puffs and bake.
Let me warn you right here, your house will smell like one big giant cookie when there are in the oven. You know, like the smell of the cookies baking when you pass by Mrs Fields Cookies at the Mall? Ya, Ahhh–MAZING!
Once those little cocoa puffs are baked up, just let them cool then you can toss them in a ziplock bag for munching or bowls of cereal. Oh wait, I forgot to mention, you can also coat them how ever you’d like. Like say… with extra cookie crumbles, cocoa, or peanut butter flour. I did both. Haha, go big or go home right?

I know what you’re thinking now. Don’t I always? You’re thinking this has got to be unhealthy and a lot of work. Um, nope. It’s actually not time consuming and is made up of REAL FOOD ingredients. Cocoa, coconut oil, banana, vanilla, coconut flour, and Udis Gluten free chocolate chips cookies (real food ingredients in each cookie too). Pretty impressive for a gluten free kid’s cookie cereal, right?
That’s why we’re going to pat ourselves on the back after making a batch! You just one upped your healthyish domesticated skills y’all! Get ready to grab a bowl, a spoon, milk of choice, and devour. No wait, you must share first, share the cocoa puffs homemade cereal loooooove with anyone you love!
