Growing up, my parents were actually pretty good about buying low sugar cereal (before I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, which ruined all my fun ha) but on occasion my Mom would surprise my sister and I with our favorite cereals as a treat. Cinnamon toast crunch and Lucky Charms were the front runners.
I decided to experiment a little with this recipe and make a cinnamon toast crunch version. You will not be disappointed in these, I pinky promise.
What you will need:
- 3 cups of blanched almond flour
- 1/3 cup of organic coconut sugar
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tbs of cinnamon + extra to sprinkle on top
- dash of salt
- 1/4 cup of melted ghee
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees
- Cover two baking sheets with parchment paper
- In a medium sized bowl combine the almond flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix together.
- In a separate bowl whisk together the egg and melted ghee.
- Combine all of the ingredients and mix until dough starts to form. Roll the dough into a ball.
- Lightly spray two more sheets of parchment paper with olive oil cooking spray. Place the dough in between the two sheets. Using a roller pin and roll the dough out until it is about 1/8 inch thick (the thinner the better).
- You can either slice the dough up evenly with a pizza cutter (to make square crackers) or you can use a classy double shot glass like we do.
- Gently remove the sliced crackers and place on the parchment lined baking sheets.
- Mash together the leftover dough, roll into a ball and complete the above steps again until you have used up all of the dough.
- Sprinkle the crackers with cinnamon.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crackers are nice and golden.
- The thinner you roll out the dough the better.
- If some crackers look more done than others before baking time is completed, remove those and then continue baking the others.
- Allow crackers to cool before enjoying.
- Make sure you keep these in an airtight container to keep them fresh and crispy.
These easy to make, crunchy, crispy, extra cinnamon-y and good for you crackers are a giant hit with my boys ( husband included) and have quickly become a regular snack around here. You can eat these plain or cut them into smaller squares and pour a little almond milk over them and happily enjoy a healthier bowl of cinnamon toast crunch.
