It’s the age-old question: “Do I want a pastry for breakfast, or cereal?” Well, thanks to people on the internet getting creative with their foods, now you can have both in one as people are turning pastries into breakfast cereal.
It started out with a trend on social media platform TikTok, where users started uploading videos of their tiny pancake cereal and it snowballed from there as people realised that they could basically make any food tiny, put it in a bowl and call it cereal.
Food blogger Sam Schnur, who boasts over 900k followers on Instagram as @thenaughtyfork took it to the next level after trying out the pancake cereal, and started making miniature versions of popular pastries like croissants and cinnamon scrolls and making them cereal.
“Mini BUTTER CROISSANT Cereal! It’s obviously not cereal (more like croissant bites) but I guess I have to continue with the trendy name,” she captioned a video explaining how to make the adorable mini-croissants.
The best part is, the mini pastries are stuffed with Nutella. And if that isn’t enough chocolate for you, forget adding milk like you would to boring cereal – Schnur instead drizzles extra Nutella over the bite-sized pastries!
Schnur has gone through the same process with several different pastries and treats including cinnamon scrolls, pop tarts, brookies (a mini cookie-brownie hybrid), and even a homemade cinnamon toast crunch cereal (mimicking the popular American cereal).
