Cocoa Puffs were definitely one of my favorite childhood cereals. Crunchy, chocolatey and made the best tasting milk. These are just as good, but way better for you. I ate these in a bowl with some almond milk like traditional cereal, but also just snacked on them as well. Good either way!
Nut Free Cereal
These are nut free since SunButter is used. No Sugar Added SunButter is my favorite to use and it's free of the top 8 allergens, including nuts. Coconut flour is used for the flour staying in line with the nut free guidelines.
Vegan Cocoa Puffs
I made these multiple times and the batches I made with a flax egg where the best. So yes, a real egg can be used if you don't need them vegan, but the flax egg version is so good. Because of this and that no other animal products are used, they are vegan.
Making Paleo Cereal
This cereal is very easy to make with just a few ingredients, but there is a little time involved with rolling each ball. Is it worth it? Definitely! It's not bad at all. I made 3 batches in 2 days, it's really not bad. If you are missing chocolatey cereal, you will definitely not mind rolling the balls.
