A delicious, healthy, gluten-free, diy version of your favorite childhood cereal, Cookie Crisps!

Who loved Cookie Crisp cereal as a kid?!

Something about cereal…it’s just my favorite! Except call me crazy, but I don’t usually eat it with milk. I typically eat cereal as a snack, dry or on yogurt. But boy do I love it!

Especially the sugar-filled kind that I ate all the time as a kid. Did I mention I ate ANYTHING but healthy foods up until high school? No veggies or healthy meals for this girl!

But since changing my eating style a bit… I have come to LOVE making DIY versions of my favorite foods.

First my Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal…now this diy Cookie Crisp Cereal?!

See, I LOVE making healthier versions of some of my favorite childhood foods. Or desserts like this Cookie Dough Blizzard. Or drinks like this Gingerbread Latte 🙂  But most of the time, I’m either running around like a chicken with its head cut off just trying to keep up with all my grad school and intern responsibilities…or I’m just lazy and go a buy the not-so-healthy stuff. But the super awesome crazzzy healthy-recipe-girl strikes again, as I came through with making another DIY childhood favorite! Decided to put my laziness aside…

Or maybe I just was procrastinating from studying for my finals… #gradschool.

Thankfully my momma came up to visit me this weekend so she became my new distraction from studying. If you’re following me on snapchat (Sarah_Grace11), or instagram (@freshfitnhealthy), then you probably saw 🙂 But we had a yummy WholeFoods lunch, and then detoxifying juices from a juice bar here in Tallahassee. And yes, I got some deeelicious fried plantains from the WF lunch bar…

I’d like to think I deserved to #treatmyself after running a 5:57 mile in crossfit though (which is when these diy Cookie Crisp bites were born)…

Despite not being a competitive runner for over 4 years now and not really running much at all, somehow I still pulled out a 6:03 and 5:57 mile when we were tested at crossfit the other day in running 2 time trials before and after our typical workout. Not gonna lie, was pretty proud of myself! Still got a little part of the runner in me 🙂 Everyone at crossfit is so funny, calling me the blonde bullet because noone there but me likes the running parts of workouts…



seeing that pic of my momma and I made me realize I was wearing one of my new FreshFitNFREE tshirts made for me! How do you like?! May be more coming if y’all are interested 🙂 FreshFitNFREE from ______. What are you wanting freedom from today?


ANYWAYS…back to the recipe since I always get side tracked.
