Growing up, my mom didn’t allow me to eat: Capri Sun and sugary cereals. So it comes as no surprise I recently became obsessed with a cereal recipe called Cocoa Crunch. It has cocoa, melted chocolate, coconut flakes, and coconut oil. Really, the makings of a dessert but the oats and crispy brown rice cereal gently suggest breakfast. It’s a darker, healthier, more satisfying version of your favorite cocoa cereal growing up. I pass it off as dessert (and not breakfast) to my daughter. Afterall, I am my mother’s daughter.
I loved that Cocoa Crunch so much I created one incorporating a little matcha and white instead of dark chocolate. A little extra caffeine in your morning cereal makes sense, right? But where to buy matcha?
