When I was a little girl, I loved Frankenberry Cereal during Halloween! I would get so excited if my mom would buy that for a special treat! But now I want everyone to know just how unhealthy this cereal really is and that you can make my recipe that tastes even better and is filled with healthy protein!
I am shocked that a box of Frankenberry cereal gets a “Healthy Whole Grain and Calcium” check of approval? I hate marketing! All I read is corn, sugar, unhealthy fats and artificial coloring!

1/3 cup Swerve
1 tsp stevia glycerite (omit if using Swerve)
1/3 cup crushed almonds/pecans/walnuts
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup strawberry egg white protein
1/4 cup butter or coconut oil, softened
1 tsp strawberry extract
Optional: natural red food coloring
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (170 degrees C). Combine 1/3 cup erythritol and stevia glycerite (or Swerve), 1/3 cup crushed nuts, almond flour, protein powder and extract in a small bowl. Cut in butter with fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Optional: roll into little balls or leave in chunks.
Place on a cookie sheet with defined edges or the butter will leak off. Bake for 12-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and gently stir while still hot. Let cool in the cookie tin (it will crisp up A LOT). Break pieces apart and enjoy with unsweetened almond milk (NOTE: I added 1 tsp of strawberry extract to my milk for extra strawberry flavor!). Makes 4 servings.
