Cookie Crisp Cereal
So, I have to be honest. I tried cookie crisp cereal for the first time last year and lets just say that it was a huge disappointment! I expected there to be the delicious taste of crunchy, sweet, vanilla chic-chip cookies! However, it tastes just like any other cereal just in cookie shapes and the chic-chips were pretty tasteless.
From that day onwards I was determined to create my own! Who knew that it would be a secretly good for you recipe that is one bowl! Whenever I make this recipe, my whole family fights over the cookie scraps and they always ask that I make more.

Storing Protein Cookie Breakfast Cereal
I store my cookie cereal in an airtight container! This helps keep them nice and crispy, and prevents them from going stale! I find glass jars and ziplock bags work best. This recipe can also be frozen, If you would like the cookie cereal to last for longer!
