Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies


Hello there! I haven’t posted in a few days, it’s been busy with school work, dance and my job. Which I guess sort of makes todays post a little bit ironic. Despite having to face that I’m growing up now and my feature is getting nearer, I’m still a full blown little kid at heart.

There’s nothing i love more than waking up on my Sundays, crabbing a bowl of my favourite cereal and planting myself in front of my TV to watch an endearing episode of my favourite show.

What’s my favourite cereal you might ask? Well it’s cinnamon toast crunch!

For the past little while I’ve been searching for different to incorporate it into my baking. I stumbled upon these Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies not long ago, and with a bit of work, I tweaked them perfectly to my taste!

These cookies taste exactly like the cereal. Honestly. The perfect balance of sugar and cinnamon create an exact replica of “the taste you can see”!

These cookies are soft and chewy, and the cereal gives them just the right crunch.

They don’t contain any wild ingredients that you’ll have to go galavanting through your local grocery store to find either, I’m sure you’ll have most of the ingredients just waiting for you in your pantry. Just an easy, no stress cookie recipe that you can whip up in only a few minutes. Pop them in the oven for less than 15 minutes and you’ll enjoy the delicious aroma of cinnamon sugar wafting through your house. Not much work for something so tasty!

So get ready to spice up your boring ol’ breakfast cereal!
