Cinnamon Faux Crunch


If you’ve ever been shopping with me you will know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch is always taunting me… it’s my favorite thing in the world [read dramatically]. So I went on a hunt and found this beauty on http://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/ So I went shopping. Mixing this up the house started to fill with the smell of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I was getting pretty stoked. Fired this in the oven and made sure my Almond Milk was in the fridge, I was going to have myself I nice bowl of cereal mid-day. Living the dream! Now I will be honest, it doesn’t taste exactly like CTC but it is still awesome, and nails the sweet tooth.
