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!

‘How do you make protein cookie cereal? 


Oat flour: I make my own by blending oats in a high speed blender to make a flour consistency.

Oil of choice: I like to use avocado oil but any oil will work

Granulated sweetener of choice: I used a calorie free monk fruit sweetener, but any granulated sugar could work.

Baking soda:Essential to get your mug cake to rise

Protein powder: I used vanilla pea protein powder, but any other protein powder should work except for whey

Milk of choice: I used almond milk, but you can use any milk of preference

Egg: If you’re vegan, try this recipe 

Vanilla extract: To add that delicious vanilla flavour while not being over powering!

Chocolate chips: Wouldn’t be a chocolate chip cookie without it!
