Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies |

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies are a soft, chewy way to enjoy the cinnamon sugar flavor of the favorite cereal!

We are cereal people in my house.

Cereal for breakfast..of course…

Cereal for after school snacks.


And yes, the occasional cereal for dinner.  THINGSGETBUSY!


So now…I’ve decided cereal for dessert needed to happen.  In cookie form.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch is one of our favorites and to me, is the perfect pairing for a cookie.


Perfect pairing.  Heh.  I think I’m fancy.

Anyhow, these cookies are perfectly sweet and perfectly chewy…with the perfect amount of cinnamon.  With 2 cups of CTC crumbs baked right in it’s like handheld cereal.  I’m basically a genius.  Sorry, that’s annoying.


And of course I drizzled them with a little white chocolate to make them look purty…but you could totally bake white chocolate chips right inside too!

Just start with 4 cups of your cereal…

I made a few changes to the recipe, and it turned out great; I:
– crushed the cereal using a food processor, so it became pretty crumb-y
– mixed the white chips into the dough itself
– refrigerated the dough overnight (which made the bake time more like 9-10 minutes but I’m a big believer in chilling dough to get puffier cookies, especially since there’s no brown sugar in this recipe)
– rolled them in cinnamon sugar before baking

I’m sure they work well as written too, but I’m really happy with how these turned out!


The recipe is so good but I would add a little more sugar


So good but I would add a little more sugar


This recipe is perfect for me! I have limited use of my hands and love cinnamon toast crunch! It was easy, especially for a person that doesn’t bake often. (Sorry!) These are delicious! And just sweet enough without any change or drizzle. I did crush to more of a powder though.


The flavour of the cookies is good but the texture of the cereal is way too chewy. If I made them again I would use the food processor and grind the cereal into a fine powder or crumbs.


Fun to make, nostalgic flavor. I added more cinnamon than called for just to give the cookies an extra punch and baked mine for 12 minutes.

The flavor is fine and the treat is not extra sweet, which I enjoy. I don’t really like the chewiness of the cereal pieces after they baked inside the cookie. If I make again I will smash the cereal to absolute smithereens instead of just crunching them a little.

Thanks for the recipe! I had fun making it.

The cinnamon toast crunch cerael was actually chewey after baking. Would not recommend.


I agree with Mickayla….. The batter tasted amazing, the baked cookies, not so much…


The cereal in it was VERY chewy


Scoured the web for something to make with the remainder of a box of this stuff. These cookies turned out awesome!! They’re off to a bake sale this weekend. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this!


I RUSHED out and bought 6 boxes of Chocolate Toast Crunch the week it came out. Alas, it has a horrible health-food texture and NO ONE will eat it. With five cereal (Especially Cinn Tst Crunch) loving, chocolate loving people that’s hard to believe. I’m going to try your cookies to hide the cereal’s texture. Thanks!


I came across this recipe via Pinterest and with this cereal being my boyfriend’s favorite, I knew I HAD to make them. They were amazing! They lasted 1 whole day and he is already asking me to make them again! Thanks for the recipe!


Oooh these look delicious ! I am a huge fan of all things cinnamon (and of cereals as well) so I will definitely give these a go 🙂 Thank you for the recipe !
