If you are looking for a low carb homemade cereal you must try this pork rind cereal!

Homemade Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Growing up, cinnamon toast crunch was an ever present staple in our pantry along with the complete arsenal of sugar-crusted cereals including pop tart crunch, remember those? These dazzling cinnamon swirl squares immediately transport me back to hectic mornings where the entire family is knocking into each other sharing one bathroom and my baby brothers are throwing things in my hair and everything is at a frantic pace because kids got up late and parents have to get to work but 3 little ones in tow is a job in itself. If it weren’t for those trusty boxes to shovel in some fuel, be it a sugar based one I doubt we could’ve invested any more thought into breakfast.

Today of course, is a different story. We’re all grown up now and as a family, we absolutely love to linger over thoughtful meals. Cinnamon toast crunch is now more reserved for treats …or dessert. Better still is the idea of a homemade version that I’ve tweaked to grow up with me. It’s still packed with both nostalgia and cinnamon sugar but I can feel better about enjoying ingredients I can pronounce and finding pleasure in tucking into a bowl of fresh, still-warm-from-the-oven cereal that’s light, crisp and only gently sweet without going overboard.

To make this homemade cinnamon toast crunch, you only need a handful of ingredients, most of which you probably already have and the hardest part is cutting them into squares. The dough is easy to work with and comes together nicely before you roll it out , slice and bake. Since you’re making your own, you can really be creative by cutting out silly shapes, particularly fun to do for kids. You could also toss in a bit of cocoa for a chocolate cinnamon toast crunch or maybe even a bit of almond, apples and nutmeg or even honey and bananas. The options are seriously unlimited. I have to say the best part is how it makes your house smell. It’ll seem like you’ve been slaving away for hours when you haven’t. Your entire family can wake up to the wonderful warming scent of cinnamon sugar and that paired along with the novelty of homemade cereal will certainly make for an incredible Saturday morning.

How to make Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bars:

  • Melt butter in a large pot over low heat
  • Add in marshmallows and stir until fully melted
  • Remove from heat and stir in the cereal
  • Press into a prepared baking dish and let cool
  • Cut and enjoy!

Also, when stirring the marshmallows into the cereal try to do it gently so you don't break the Cinnamon Toast Crunch into a bunch of tiny pieces.

Why did my Cereal Bars turn out brittle?

This typically happens if you melt the marshmallows to fast over too high of heat. (I’ve done this too many times so I know!)

For the best gooey marshmallow cereal bars, be patient and melt everything over low heat.

Are Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bars healthy?

Like all food, and especially desserts like these, they are best eaten in moderation! A treat isn't bad every now and then.

If I’m making these as a gift I like to buy the tall clear goodie bags and place 2-3 cereal bars in them.

These Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bars smell amazing when you make them! It’s hard to wait to let them cool!

For the cereal:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the flours, baking soda, and cinnamon in a bowl. Then, pulse the flours with the butter in a food processor until the butter is about pea sized and forms a shaggy dough. Add the vanilla, honey, and buttermilk, and pulse again until a dough forms.

Chill the dough for about 15 minutes in the fridge. Then, roll out the dough on a parchment lined, lightly floured surface. Use a knife to cut your dough into cinnamon toast crunch squares. Bake in the pre-heated oven until lightly brown, about 10 to 15 minutes.

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

Combine the sugar and cinnamon, and toss the still warm cinnamon toast crunch in the cinnamon sugar. Cool completely on a baking rack before eating.

Cinnamon French Toast Bites

Those of you who have been following along for a while will know that I have a weakness for french toast. I’ve shared 9 french toast recipes so far, and I’ve even created a recipe collection for them! (You can check it out here -> New Ways With French Toast).

I expect to run out of ideas soon. A french toast drought.

But until then, I’ll keep sharing new takes on french toast that I come up with. No matter how wacky they may seem, as long as they’re scrumptious! And these little babies certainly fit that bill.

They taste like mini cinnamon doughnuts! With about 80% less calories – win, win, win!!

These French Toast Bites are really just a variation on my Cinnamon French Toast Sticks. The only difference is that the bread is cut into cubes and they are way more fun to cook.

“More fun to cook?”, I hear you ask. Yes, they really are! Because they are in the shape of cubes, browning each side by turning them is a real pain. So instead, I “sauté” them with a wooden spoon, as though I’m making a stir fry. It works perfectly!

Food you can eat with your hands. My favourite kind….

OK, here we go, here are my Baby Hands on show for you to have a giggle at. Gives you some perspective of the size of these French Toast Bites. But remember, my hands are abnormally small so the French Toast Bites look larger than they actually are!!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Encrusted French Toast

Cinnamon Toast Crunch encrusted French Toast (Cinnamon French Toast Crunch) is the perfect combination for a crunchy, delicious breakfast!

Guy’s this French Toast is amazing. But first, let me tell you about my dilemma…

I’m getting REALLY good at making excuses not to go grocery shopping:

  • I’m tired.
  • My baby always goes #2 at the store so I look like I’m shoplifting to get to the bathroom to change his diaper.
  • My daughter asks 4 million times to get fruit snacks and/or cookies and/or gum and/or pizza and/or ice cream and/or barbies. #dependsontheaisle
  • I’d rather spend the money on shoes #impracticalmuch?
  • I’m tired.
  • I’m tired.
  • I’m tired.

Basically, I never go shopping except not going means I have to somehow whip out meals with the random findings from my kitchen. I know I’m probably much better at this than most, but I tell ya….sometimes I can’t think of ANYTHING.

On these days, I go get a take and bake pizza or I make breakfast for dinner. Pizza and breakfast foods are two things I know my daughter will eat no problem. These two things never get old for her…

Well, one *lazy* day, I got the brilliant idea to make crunchy french toast to go with our dinner eggs but instead of using corn flakes, I’d use cinnamon toast crunch cereal.

You guys, sometimes, I have REALLY good ideas.

This french toast was so good! Sweet, crunchy and cinnamony on the outside…warm and smooth on the inside. And, it’s particularly amazing with a little extra butter and warm syrup. Mmm…

Are you drooling yet? It’s really THAT good.

Here’s how you make French Toast:

Start by getting some cinnamon toast crunch cereal. Put some into a large bag and crush it into tiny crumbs using a rolling pin. Pour this out onto a plate and set aside.
For the egg mixture, crack 3 eggs and measure out 1/4 cup milk into a shallow dish. Whisk it all up until combined and you’re ready to go! Grab some older, dryer bread and let’s do this! I found this yummy loaf of ciabatta bread from a local bakery. SO good! Regular sandwich bread or challah bread would be good too.
Press a piece into the egg mixture to soak. Flip it around and do the other side too.
Then coat each side as best as you can in the cinnamon toast crunch crumbs. Cook in some butter over medium heat until browned on either side and that’s it! Crunchy, slightly sweet and so so yummy to snarf down.

Cinnamon Toast the Right Way

It&rsquos time we stop skirting the issue here, people!

This is the best way to make cinnamon toast. Studies have proven it.

slices bread (whole wheat is great!)

sticks salted butter, softened

vanilla extract (more to taste)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Smush softened butter with a fork. Dump in sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg, if using. Stir to completely combine.

Spread on slices of bread, completely covering the surface all the way to the edges.

Place toast on a cookie sheet. Place cookies sheet into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil until golden brown and bubbling. Watch so it won't burn!

Remove from oven and cut slices into halves diagonally.

Oooooh. You&rsquore getting ready to get a taste of Me, Opinionated. Be sure to take a photo! You won&rsquot see it very often.

Lucky for you, I won&rsquot be revealing my expert views on the environment, the stimulus, the new health care legislation, or whether Standard Poodles ever should have been cross-bred with Golden Retrievers. Instead, I&rsquoll be tearing apart the all-important subject of&hellipcinnamon toast. It&rsquos time we stop skirting the issue here, people! We&rsquore all friends here, and I can no longer remain silent.

Did you know there&rsquos a right way and a wrong way to make cinnamon toast? It&rsquos true. And unfortunately for my marriage, I happen to have always known the right way to make cinnamon toast. My beloved husband, on the other hand, was always under the mistaken impression that the way he&rsquos always liked to eat cinnamon toast is the right way to make cinnamon toast. But there&rsquos only one problem: his cinnamon toast is not only the wrong cinnamon toast, it&rsquos absolutely, positively the wrong cinnamon toast. It&rsquos the most wrong cinnamon toast that there can be. It&rsquos the wrongest. The most wrong. The Wrongalongadingdong.

It&rsquos sure a good thing I came into the picture. There&rsquos no telling where that fella would be without me!

Before I show you THE right way to make cinnamon toast, I&rsquom going to review a few different approaches so that we can do a compare/contrast at the end of this post. We&rsquore going to crack the lid off of this if it&rsquos the last thing we do!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal Bars

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal Bars are the perfect treat to make today for National Cereal Day! That’s right, there’s a day to celebrate all those delicious boxes of breakfast! I can think of a hundred different ways to use my favorite cereal in recipes too! Like our Apple Crisp with the Cinnamon Toast topping – this is one of my favorites!!

My absolute favorite cereal of all time is Cinnamon Toast Crunch from General Mills, I always get excited when I receive a box in the mail and know I get to start creating a delicious recipe with my favorite cereal. I mean, there’s just something about this cinnamony delicious goodness that makes me happy!

Knowing that National Cereal Day was right around the corner, I decided to make some simple Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal Bars to celebrate. There were absolutely no complaints from my boys when they came home and found a pan of the ooey gooey bars waiting for them after school!

If you’ve been following the blog you know that my oldest son is a brownie obsessed teenager who is known to finish off an entire 9 x 13 pan on his own in one day. To be honest the kid could stand to gain a little weight, after a season of swim team he has turned into a skinny (for reals he’s in really good shape) boy/man.

So, I don’t really complain much when he eats 12 sandwiches, a pizza and a pan of brownies. These treats were no exception, they were gone in no time at all.

I’ll admit to saving a few back for myself though, I couldn’t let them all be devoured by the kids since it was MY favorite cereal!! Check out the recipe below, it’s literally only three ingredients and you have a delicious treat waiting for you!

These are great to take to potlucks or make for parties too! Everyone loves them and they are always the first to go!
