Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal Bars

Cinnamon Toast Crunch is one of our favorite cereals. I even remember how cool it was when I was a kid and they came in bar form for breakfast or snacks on the go. One weekday morning after pouring everyone’s bowls, I had an epiphany. Why not make my own cereal bars?! I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of it before. The boys LOVED these. This recipe alone probably won me the coveted ‘Mom of the Year’ award. Include them in lunches for an extra special treat, but be careful because you just might start a cafeteria riot as all the kids vie for a taste.

Honey Wheat Sandwich Bread

This recipe, from Budget Bytes, makes wonderfully fluffy, moist, and delicious sandwich bread. Serve it toasted for breakfast with some yummy cinnamon honey butter. Heck, just eat a slice when it’s still warm from baking in the oven. It’s addicting. It’s also cheaper, and tastier than it’s mass-produced counterparts. And the piece de resistance… it only costs about $1.34 per loaf, which breaks down to about 11 cents a slice! What better sandwich is there than the one that leaves both your stomach and wallet full?!

Honey Wheat Sandwich Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp yeast
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 whole wheat flour
  • 2-3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tbsp salt

Instructions

  • Combine the water, yeast, and honey. Stir to combine and allow to sit until it becomes foamy. It may take up to ten minutes because of the honey.
  • Stir in the olive oil and salt.
  • Stir in the 1 1/2 cups of wheat flour. Once that’s mixed in add the all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until you can no longer stir it with a spoon.
  • Turn the ball of dough out onto a floured surface and knead in the rest of the all purpose flour.
  • Keep adding flour until you have a soft, elastic but not sticky ball. Knead for about 3 minutes.
  • Loosely cover the ball of dough and let rise until it’s doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
  • Shape the dough into the log about the length of your loaf pan.
  • Coat the bread pan with non-stick spray or oil and place the dough inside.
  • Allow the dough to rise again until doubled inside, about 45 minutes.
  • Cut a long slit in the top of the dough to allow for expansion during cooking ( a serrated blade makes the smoothest cut).
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bake the bread for 30 minutes, or until a deep golden brown on top.
  • Remove the bread from the pan, transfer to a wire rack, and allow to cool before slicing*.

Notes

*To make slicing easier, and to create prettier, more uniform slices, turn the bread loaf upside down before cutting.

Triple Chocolate Quick Bread

With my food guzzlers, I’m always on the lookout for a quick addition to my menu that can help top off their tanks.

I love a good dessert that I don’t feel terrible about giving my family that helps keep them full until morning.

This little gem (also known as triple chocolate quick bread) is one of my go-to favorites. It’s like a special edition chocolate muffin, with a hint of apples.

They love a nice, warm slice of my chocolate ‘bread’ before bed with a cold glass of milk. It makes them feel all warm and fuzzy.

I may, or may not, have also been talked into making this for them for a special breakfast as it contains both eggs and applesauce.  

Even better, this from scratch dessert, or breakfast, or snack, is easy and takes hardly any time to whip up. Did I mention triple chocolate quick bread’s versatility?

So find yourself a reason to give it a try, you won’t be disappointed in the results.

Triple Chocolate Quick Bread

Ingredients

For The Bread

  • 1 & 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips divided
  • 1/2 cups butter softened
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 & 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 & 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

For The Glaze

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp half and half
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

To Make The Bread

  • In a pot on the stove top over low heat, melt 1 cup of chocolate chips; set aside to cool.
  • In a stand mixer, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs and cooled chocolate, mix until evenly combined.
  • Add applesauce and vanilla; set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until evenly combined.
  • Add flour mix to the batter and mix until evenly combined.
  • Lightly mix in the remaining chocolate chips just until incorporated into batter.
  • Divide batter evenly between two* greased loaf pans.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
  • Cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.

To Make The Glaze

  • In a small pot over low heat, melt chocolate chips and butter, stirring until evenly combined.
  • Stir in half and half.
  • Remove from heat and stir in confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and salt.
  • Drizzle over warm loaves, or pipe onto loaves using a ziplock bag.
  • Let the chocolate cool and serve.

Notes

If you’d prefer to make one full sized loaf, simply add all the batter to one full size loaf pan. Baking time will take a little over an hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Typically the chocolate piping is spread between two loaves so there’s not nearly as much piled on, but the ‘breakfast’ bread I was coerced into making I left glaze free. I didn’t want too much chocolate on my mom-conscience before sending them off for school. All that chocolate on their dessert though was a real treat.
