If you’re a cereal addict like myself, Jessica Segarra’s latest cookbook will make you go head over heels! “Cereal Sweets & Treats” has my current favorite cookie recipe: Cap’n Crunch Cookies, which we’re sharing with you today!
Jessica Segarra, the genius behind the blog The Novice Chef blog, has published her second cookbook: Cereal Sweets & Treats. Now, before I tell you all about it, here’s a question for you: what’s your all-time favorite cereal? And if you say Shredded Wheat, we can’t be friends! My all-time favorite is Cap’n Crunch, the original version. I don’t like the berries and I don’t love the peanut butter, but there’s something about the simple taste of the Cap’n that I love. Oh and I also try to convince myself that because it has coconut oil and oat flour in the ingredients, it’s good for me. (HA.)
So of course, when I was browsing through Jessica’s new book, I bookmarked all her Cap’n Crunch recipes. She’s got a Cap’n Crunch Milkshake I have yet to try, but I started with these cookies and let me tell you: they are DIVINE. It’s like a bite of your favorite cereal, in a buttery delicious cookie base. Easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients at home (because everyone ALWAYS has a box of Cap’n Crunch in their pantry, right?!), so go ahead and make them! Jessica was generous enough to send me a copy of her new book and allowed me to share the recipe for these cookies with you, so you MUST make them!
Cereal Sweets & Treats is a gorgeous book written and photographed by Jessica Segarra. The chapters are divided into: Bars (Pumpkin Cheerios Bars); Cakes, Cupcakes, & Muffins (Orange Frosted Flakes Glazed Muffins); Candies (White Chocolate Trix Bark); Cookies (Cinnamon Toast Crunch Macarons); and Frozen Treats (Cocoa Pebbles Ice Cream Sandwiches). Doesn’t it all sound delicious and so creative?!
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book, but would’ve bought it either way since I love Jessica’s recipes! I was under no obligation to write a review about it.
