Homemade Cinnamon Cereal Is Officially A Thing

There aren’t many better childhood memories of food than the classic weekend breakfast of sugary cereal. My personal favorite? Cinnamon Toast Crunch™! Now that I’m older, indulging in it is something I allow myself to do on occasion, but what better than to make a version healthy enough that you can enjoy it whenever you'd like?

This Crunchy Cinnamon Cereal recipe is made using only better-for-you ingredients (many of which may already live in your pantry!), including coconut sugar and Vital Proteins Original Collagen Peptides. I’m a big fan of the latter because it’sthrice as nice as before thanks to the addition of skin-loving hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. The Original Collagen Peptides is a must-add ingredient because it’s flavorless, odorless and easily dissolves in hot and cold liquids. Love!

This collagen recipe is simple to make and hardly takes any cook time. I keep my homemade cereal in a sealed glass jar in the fridge, but it’s open most of the day because I can’t keep from snacking on it! Let’s be real: Is there anything better in this world than breakfast for dinner when your meal is this healthy take  on your favorite childhood cereal?

Crunchy Cinnamon Cereal



  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl, and mix together.
  3. Melt coconut oil and combine with the egg white, stirring together.
  4. Add the liquid to the dry mixture and stir.
  5. Using your hands to continue combining, add in the butter and massage into a ball of dough. It should be wet enough that it doesn’t crumble and will form into a ball, but dry enough that it isn’t greasy. Add more butter if the mixture is too dry or not coming together.
  6. Between two pieces of parchment paper, place the ball of dough and use a rolling pin over the top layer to flatten the dough out into a very thin sheet. 
  7. Peel off the top layer of parchment paper and place the dough facing down on a large baking sheet, then removing the bottom layer of paper. 
  8. Use a pizza cutter or a sharp knife and gently cut vertical and horizontal lines to form squares. Use a fork to poke small holes in the top of each square. 
  9. Sprinkle a small amount of cinnamon and coconut sugar on top, and place in the oven.
  10. Cook for 3-4 minutes, carefully watching because it will burn quickly after that time period. 
  11. Remove from the oven, let it cool completely before removing or breaking apart, and then devour! Snack by hand or pour yourself a nice cold bowl of cereal!
