Hi guys! I know people is ready for Christmas and Christmas baking but we will have more than a month to enjoy festive treats so I say let's end this month with a fun homemade cereal recipe instead! 🤗

Have you ever tried Reese's Puffs Cereal? They are cocoa and peanut butter crunchy cereal balls and they are incredibly tasty 😋

Well, if you have never tried it or you can't find it in your grocery store today I'm sharing a super easy way to make your own!! It's not my recipe but I made Baked Ambrosia's recipe and it turned out super delicious so I had to share it here too!!

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Chocolate Puffs: Add all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, almond flour, cocoa powder, and salt into a bowl and mix to combine (in the original recipe they use a food processor).

  8. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  9. Form balls out of the dough, about the size of blueberries (2g each) and place them on the baking sheet.

  10. Bake for about 5 minutes (Watch out! They go from raw to burnt in seconds).

  11. Repeat from 8 for Peanut Butter Puffs and bake until you’ve used up all the dough.

  12. Place one portion of homemade Reese's Puffs cereal in a bowl. Add cold milk.

RECIPE NOTES:

  • You can use fresh eggs if you want of course, I bought the egg whites because I didn't want to deal with leftover yolks.

  • You can make almond meal from almonds with the skin on. Put them in a food processor and turn them into powder.

  • You can make 5-6 portions of cereal with this recipe. The portion looks small but this cereal is very filling, trust me.
