Low Carb Cinnamon Crunch Cereal

15 ratings

This cinnamon cereal is chock full of delicious, good-for-you ingredients and it is paleo too! It retains a nice crunch once milk is poured over it in a bowl thanks to the coconut oil coating all the nooks and crannies. Spread the mixture out onto a baking sheet in a thin layer, but do not disturb it after it completely cools to create delicious, clumps of cereal. Break apart when cooled. This is super yummy as a granola snack too.

    You'll can take control of the ingredients in this recipe by creating a recipe of your own using Carb Mgr. I wouldn't use the 2 cups of coconut flakes, they are an 'avoid' item anyway.

      5889 calories and 90.1 grams of carbs for a 2 oz. serving, something isn't right. Please check and make sure you have the correct nutritional valve or delete this recipe!!!!

        Note to self- look at calories per serving before making- each serving is over my target calorie intake for the day:(

          I am extremely disappointed! This was a recommendation for my first weekly planner. It says „keto friendly“ until I click on it... then it says that I should avoid it (which I saw when all the ingredients were in the oven). Now I have a 1/8 of dry ingredients for 11 carbs!!!! This shouldn’t be recommended in the first place!

          I added a half a cup of pecans. And I used coconut butter instead of coconut oil

              Fantastic snack. I made a huge jar and keep it on my counter. My whole family grabs a handful when needed.

                This just doesn't have enough flavor for the amount of calories and carbs it contains.

                  I really don't believe Macros can be accurate. calories are over 1000? For serving. Really.

                    It is unclear if the macros include the milk!!! It’s listed in the ingredients, but the description in the log says “dry cereal”.

                      There's no carbs in 8 oz of almond milk.

                    Do the calories and macros include the almond milk or no?

                        Can I take out the sweetener and substitute the almonds for almond butter?

                          Yum! I love the taste of his and the portion feels large enough when starting out on Keto and downsizing my usual portions;)

                              Although this is delicious, it sure takes a hit on carbs and calories!

                                    Can you take out the sweetner or do you need it for the ingredients to stick? And if omitted what would the macros be please?

                                      Yes you can take it out, though I do think it helps the ingredients get a nice glossy look. The macros would be the same except the total carbs would come down from 33 to 21 g.
