Ingredients for dough:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 2 cold sticks of butter (unsalted)
  • 1/2 cup sugar

For the dough: In a big bowl, mix your flours, cinnamon, sugar, salt. Mix so it’s all combined and add your cubed cold butter.

Mix Mix Mix

Start mixing using your hands until a sand like texture. Add the wet ingredients (vanilla and water). Mix using your hands until you have a dough.

Step 3

Once you have a dough, roll it out, spread your butter and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture. Shape into your squares (I recommend making them small since they grow in size while baking).

Step 4

Place your squares on a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake at 350F for about 12-15 minutes or until darker in color and crispy.

Step 5

Add your squares into a cereal bowl add your favorite milk and glitter and enjoy!
