#CerealAnytime how true is that hashtag?!
If there is one thing that we love to eat at all times of the day in this house, it is cereal. For breakfast, on yogurt, dry, as a bed time snack. We just can’t seem to get enough. There are simply no limits to when this treat may pop up. Today I want to introduce a new product from Post Cereal, Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch, and share a fun creative way to make your cereal into something out of the ordinary, a cookie.

Recently while shopping at Wal-Mart I stocked up on our cereal supply. I grabbed something new, Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch, and family favorite Berry Colossal Crunch. I knew the girls would be thrilled when I arrived home and I couldn’t have been more correct. Emily was begging me to let her dig into the Berry Colossal Crunch before I had even made it in the house. “I’m gonna eat that whole bag all by myself mama!”

I love bringing home treats for my family that give them great big smiling faces. Sometimes achieving that can be tricky since everyone seems to love something different. But Post Cereals make things so easy. With their large variety of flavors, you are sure to find something for every member of your family. Our mornings are always happier when we can gather around the table together, everyone with their favorite box of cereal.

Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch is a new product available at Wal-Mart. The chocolate puffs with the fun marshmallow shapes made it an instant favorite of the girls… and me. There is just something about this cereal that I can’t stay away from. “Sorry kids, mom ate all of your cereal.” They’ll forgive me, right?!

Since we ended up loving the cereal so much I thought why not turn it into a fun treat for the girls. I had an idea that I thought just might work so I got busy in the kitchen with lots of “help” from Emily.

So how did they turn out?
AMAZING!

My newest #recipe creation Po Power Crunch #cereal #cookies make #CerealAnytime even easier. #Ad… Click To Tweet

I expected them to be good, but they turned out even better than I had hoped they would. The chocolatey crunch with the coconut flavor, sweet chewy berries and crispy almonds equal out to be a treat that the parents and the kids will both love… just like the Kung Fu Panda Cereal.

I have a feeling that these treats would be equally tasty if I had made them with the Colossal Berry Crunch too. We’ll have to put that on our short to-do list this week. After all, our first batch of Po Power Crunch Cereal Cookies didn’t last long.

When is your favorite time to sit down with a bowl of cereal?

  • Meghan Flinn

    Yum! I used to eat cereal every morning for breakfast! Now I have Noah loving it, but he often chooses it for dinner 😉

    • I totally have that child too. She doesn’t have a clue all the goodness she is missing, sigh. Maybe some day, but for now it means more for me :D!

  • I would totally have cereal for all the meals, or toast. I love toast.

    • Haha! Toast huh?! I forget how much I love toast actually cinnamon toast, apple butter toast, toast and jelly…. mmmmmm!!!!

  • Those turned out so well! Love them!

  • Jessica

    We buy berry colossal crunch!! It’s yummy! The cookies look so good. We will have to try them! Thanks for the recipe.

    • It is SO yummy right?! Emily is completely obsessed with the stuff. I really want to make these with it soon. I bet they would be so good.

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    These seem like the possibilities are endless with cereals and mix ins! YUM!!
    I’m a huge fan of a heaping bowl of cereal at night after the kids go to bed. It’s ALMOST as good as a heaping bowl of ice cream. 🙂

    • YES! I was thinking the same thing and if I am being completely honest I was shocked with how good they actually were. I was praying they’d be good but they were actually REALLY good. Oh me too friend. I honestly usually choose the cereal. There is something about the crunchiness that I just love.

  • When I think of ice cream, I can’t help but think of my Dad. As far as I can remember, he has been eating cereal for his bed time snack. It’s full of sugar and it’s too sweet but he loves it. I may see if this is something he’d like and treat him to a batch.

    • I will forever and always LOVE cereal. It is SO good.

  • Whitney Jordan

    We love cereal, too! I’ve always wanted to branch out a bit with cereal treats since I love Rice Krispies so much. I’ve tried s’mores bars with Golden Grahams, but need to think outside the box with recipes like yours 🙂

    • YES! Be adventurous friend. I was really nervous about how these would turn out and they were SO good. It was such a relief and a great feeling.

  • chall1018

    I could seriously eat cereal for supper every night and be a happy camper! I love cereal. These cookies look amazing!

    • Me too, me too! There is just something about the milk and the crunch and all of the flavors. Thank you friend!

  • #CerealAnytime Ha! I completely agree. 😉

    • It is so true right?! I could eat cereal all the time and it would never get old.

  • Yum. I was talking to a coworker, and she said they eat cereal on Wednesday nights every week. I totally feel like I need to institute that!

    • That is a genius idea… Wednesdays can be so hectic. I wish my Russ liked cereal more!
