Crispy Keto Breakfast Cereal

Breakfast cereal on keto?! Heck yes - and a ridiculously delicious one at that. Crunchy, nutty, sweet, and savory, this cereal is loaded with good fats and can be made in minutes. Make extra (seriously, you’re going to want it) and store it in an airtight container so you have access to a quick breakfast or grab and go trail-mix-like snack. It’s awesome in a bowl with almond milk (don’t forget to add the milk macros) or as a topping for full-fat yogurt and keeps in an airtight container at room temperature for one week
Serves 6 One Serving: 3/4 Cup

  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sweetener and cinnamon and stir until the sweetener is melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla, salt, coconut, nuts, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, and flaxseed meal. Stir evenly to coat with the coconut oil mixture. Reduce the heat to medium and toast, tossing often, until the coconut, nuts, and seeds are a bit toasty but not burned, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Spread the cereal in one layer onto the prepared baking sheet to cool and crisp.

    It is delicious we had it over Greek Yogurt this morning for breakfast, I added cranberries and Monk chocolate chips crushed 1/2 cup. The only thing I noticed was it had an odd
    smell, but other than that I really did enjoy it.

      I noticed the odd smell with mine also and I deduced it was the flaxseed meal (golden). I assumed mine was rancid, threw them out, and bought fresh flax seed (again, golden). Same thing again – too strong of a smell. I no longer make it with flax seed because the odor really bothered me, regardless of flaxseed’s nutritive benefits. We make it all the time and really enjoy it.

    Fantastic cereal! I used hazelnuts, macademia and pecans so it added a few net carbs but its worth it! Thanks for a great cereal recipe!

    Amazing. Better than traditional cereal. We’ve made it with a variety of spices and you can’t go wrong.

    Delicious. I like to add a few Sugarfree chocolate chips. I keep a measuring cup in the container so I won’t get too carried away.

    This recipe is so good…….almost too good! I can’t stay out of it!

  9. 5 stars
    Beware! This stuff is sooooo good, it’s super easy to munch. Luckily, it’s filling too, so you can portion out a serving and get seriously satisfied. I like to keep a little in a container for quick on the go energy.

  10. 5 stars
    I like this with a triple cream yogurt 17% fat and a smattering of blueberries
