Healthy Cinnamon Crunch Toast Cereal

Crunchy, cinnamon-sugary, bite-sized treats that are perfect all on their own or in a big bowl with milk…  ringing any bells?  Oh yussssss, that classic breakfast cereal.  But GUESS WHAT GUYS??  I made it HEALTHY.  I present to you, this Healthy Cinnamon Crunch Toast Cereal!

This Healthy Cinnamon Crunch Toast Cereal tastes just like the storebought version. But GUESS WHAT? This healthy homemade version is made without the added sugar, preservatives, and unnecessary additives. This Homemade Cinnamon Toast Crunch is low in sugar, all natural, and even vegan! -- Healthy Dessert Recipes with low calorie, low fat, high protein, and gluten free options at the Desserts With Benefits Blog (www.DessertsWithBenefits.com)

Just as crunchy, just as sweet, just as delicious, and just as addicting as the storebought version, but WAY, way better.

This Healthy Cinnamon Crunch Toast Cereal is low in sugar, all natural, and even vegan too!

To sweeten these treats, we don’t use any of the white sugar, fructose, dextrose, or maltodextrin (ingredients in the boxed cereal), but instead, organic erythritol.  You can substitute this with any granulated sweetener you prefer, though.  I’m sure coconut sugar, maple sugar, date sugar, or xylitol would work well too!

Unlike the prepackaged cereal, these freshly made flavor bombs are all-natural and made with just 4 organic, non-GMO ingredients.  No need for the preservatives, caramel coloring, and genetically modified “stuff.”

First, you chop up Ozery Bakery’s Organic Multi Seed OneBun Squares into smaller squares.  I sliced mine 4 slices by 4 slices, but you can slice them smaller or larger depending on your preference.  After that, you toss the pieces in coconut oil, ground cinnamon, and erythritol, then throw it in the oven and bake ’til crunchy.

How easy is that??

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice the OneBun Squares into bite-sized pieces (I sliced each square 4 slices by 4 slices, as shown above in the GIF).  Place the chopped pieces on an unlined large baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the granulated erythritol and cinnamon.
  4. Drizzle the melted coconut oil over the chopped up OneBun pieces and stir together to combine.
  5. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar combo on top and mix together until even throughout.  Arrange the mixture in a single layer so each piece can bake evenly and get its chance to turn crunchy!
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes and give it a stir.  Bake for another 10 minutes, then let cool completely.  Serve fresh while they're crunchy, or portion into individual baggies to store in the freezer.  The freezer keeps the cereal crunchy!

  3. This immediately caught my eye. This is a cereal I can get on board with. So yummy!

  4. Well this just might be one of the easiest and most fabulous sounding recipes ever! These are those buns we saw in Whole Foods just this past weekend, eh? I currently use flatbreads from Trader Joe’s to make pizzas in the oven sometimes and I’d love to give these babies a try for that. Or cinnamon toast crunch squares because YUM

  5. YUM!! Looks amazing

  6. This is a fantastic idea!! I only purchase granola because of all the sugar in traditional cereals. This is a great alternative. I am most certainly going to give it a try! I write a blog, tattoosinsuburbia.com. I try to bake/cook with healthier ingredients as well. I will most certainly be checking back to see what you think of next. I love your blog!!

    Cheers,
