Cinnamon Toast Crunch

One of our favorite childhood cereals that resembled a bowl of mini-French toasts can be made at home. 

Ingredients

For the cereal:

  • 2 1/2 Cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 4 Teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2/3 Cups butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 Cups light brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla
  • 1/4 Cup honey
  • 1 Cup buttermilk

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

For the cereal:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the flours, baking soda, and cinnamon in a bowl. Then, pulse the flours with the butter in a food processor until the butter is about pea sized and forms a shaggy dough. Add the vanilla, honey, and buttermilk, and pulse again until a dough forms.

Chill the dough for about 15 minutes in the fridge. Then, roll out the dough on a parchment lined, lightly floured surface. Use a knife to cut your dough into cinnamon toast crunch squares. Bake in the pre-heated oven until lightly brown, about 10 to 15 minutes. 

For the cinnamon sugar coating:

Combine the sugar and cinnamon, and toss the still warm cinnamon toast crunch in the cinnamon sugar. Cool completely on a baking rack before eating.
