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…

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. Cinnamon Toast is my all time favorite snack. I love it!! But cinnamon toast cookies!! You are genius and I love this idea. Kind of perfect for holiday cookie baking too!

  5. 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 !

  6. 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!

  7. 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!
