The recipe, which features gluten-free tortillas, is a healthier alternative to mass-produced cereals — many of which are chock-full of sugar and other filler ingredients. (Some commenters have pointed out that the recipe also resembles a variation of buñuelos, a traditional Mexican dessert that is sometimes made with flour tortillas.) And the best part is that all you need to recreate this recipe are a few simple ingredients:

  • Two gluten-free tortillas
  • Cooking oil 
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • Powdered cinnamon 

You can also buy ready-made Cinnamon Toast Crunch seasoning, or Cinnadust, for less than $6 at Sam's Club. (It's also available on Amazon for $8.)
