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…

Mix those crumbs right into the batter.Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies | www.cookiesandcups.com

Scoop the dough onto a baking sheet.  I used my large cookie scoop.Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies | www.cookiesandcups.comBake them for 8-9 minutes-ish.

It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

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.

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!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch is one of my favorites! I’ve never met a (sugary-ish) kiddie cereal I didn’t love. HIde the Capn Crunch and Trix 🙂 I love that you baked C.T.C. into cookies. How fun! And a little white choc never hurt anyone. You’re so right!

Erin | The Law Student

Cereal was my all-time favorite after school snack as a kid, and if mom bought Cinnamon Toast Crunch, it was a full-house battle to consume as many bowls as possible before the box went empty. Love the idea of baking it into cookies–I have no doubt we’d still try to race each other for the last one!

Annie @ Annie

These sound like snickerdoodles times one million! I’ve been looking for a recipe with Cinnamon Toast Crunch since I tried to make brownies with it and everything went terrible wrong.

My hubby’s favorite cereal. I may have to hide the box and make a batch of these for Christmas.

I keep a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch around so at night when I’m reading, I can pour a big bowl with no milk and eat it like popcorn. But then my husband goes and copies and pours himself a bowl and I don’t know why, it just annoys me. IT’S MY THING.

Anyways. These cookies. I will make them and hide them and my husband will never find them.
