Crunchy Cookie Cereal with Nut Milk

Chocolate & Vanilla Crispy Cereal
with Cookie Bites & Nut Milk

Check out this new video Dominick made! He takes you step by step how to make the first of the recipes down below, Crunchy Chocolate & Vanilla Cereal!

My favorite cereal of all time! This cereal is both crispy and soft with a buckwheat, cacao, and vanilla dough that is dehydrated until crispy. Next I add in a cranberry, raisin, flax seed, cookie that is chewy, soft, and super good! Last but not least a nut milk that fuses the flavors together. 
Whats better then a raw cereal to start your day?
