Pumpkin Spice Cereal Treats

We made a promise to ourselves while writing this post that we would not use the B-word (basic.) BECAUSE these treats are farrrrr from that heinous term.

It is a truly magical time when Trader Joe’s transitions from surf board tortilla chips and peach salsa to pumpkin EVE-RY-THING.

We’re convinced that at the beginning of each fall we hold onto our “summer tans” just a touch longer than we should have due to the sheer amount of orange pumpkin-flavored-everything we are consuming from the one and only Trader Joe’s.

This recipe came to Marcy in a dream… she said she woke up actually smelling cinnamon ( we took that to mean we had to get to the kitchen ASAP!)


  • 6 cups Pumpkin Cereal O’s (avail at Trader Joe’s)
  • 4 cups marshmallows
  • 3 TBS salted butter
  • 1/4 TBS Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Shake of cinnamon


  • Spray a baking pan with coconut oil and set aside (for THICK treats use 8×8 for Reg treats 9×13)
  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter; add the marshmallows and stir until melted
  • Once the marshmallow/butter combination has melted, add in the pumpkin cereal, stirring until well combined
  • Place the mixture into the greased baking sheet, using your hands or rubber spatula to press down
