28 Keto Cereal Recipes To Start Your Day Right

The post 28 Keto Cereal Recipes To Start Your Day Right appeared first on Keto Summit.

A keto-friendly cereal might sound like an oxymoron. And it’s easy to understand why. So many of us grew up thinking that the major ingredient of cereal had to be wheat flour. In fact, the word cereal comes from Ceres, the ancient Roman goddess of grain.

But who says cereal has to mean wheat? There are so many other fantastic grains and seeds out there that you can use on a Keto diet to create a delicious low carb breakfast or healthy post-workout snack. And this proves that a keto-friendly cereal is not only doable but delicious!

The keto-friendly cereals on this list are chock full of filling seeds and nuts, along with some healthy sugars, to create delicious new takes on the classic cereal.

You’ll never miss the store-bought stuff once you try these recipes for low-carb granola, muesli (basically a Swiss version of cereal), and porridge. Whether you’re looking for a hot or cold version of cereal, this list has you covered!

Ingredients: package of Bob’s Red Mill flaked coconut, ground cinnamon, stevia, unsweetened almond milk, strawberries, coconut oil.

Toasted coconut flakes make the perfect alternative to corn flakes in cereals like this one, letting you still enjoy the crunch but without the added issues that traditional cereals can cause. Just be careful to watch the flakes as they toast so they don’t burn. Serve this cereal with your favorite milk and a few berries and you have a tasty and filling breakfast cereal to keep you going all morning.

Really Good Low Carb Granola

– Low Carb Maven

Ingredients: walnuts, almonds, roasted pumpkin seeds, roasted whole sunflower seeds, Bob’s Red Mill ground golden flax meal, unsweetened dried cranberries, Sukrin Clear or Gold Fiber Syrup, ghee or melted coconut oil, Sukrin Melis or powdered swerve, salt.

Granola can be used as a breakfast dish or as a source of energy to snack on during the day, especially if you take part in sports and need a bit of a boost. This low carb version makes a lovely crunchy breakfast cereal but it also a great topping for yogurt or ketogenic ice cream. This granola can be stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks.

Blueberry Morning Cereal

– Maria Mind Body Health

Ingredients: erythritol, stevia glycerite, almonds or pecans or walnuts, almond flour, JAY ROBB vanilla whey protein, coconut oil, pure organic blueberry extract, cinnamon.

Ketogenic cereals can be a bit of a challenge, so why not try out this blueberry one! It is crunchy and delicious and has all the slow-release energy you will need to get through the morning. This makes a great after-school snack for kids and helps them get away from sugary snacks. If you like this one you could experiment with other flavors – for example, try cherry extract instead of blueberry!

Low Carb Macadamia Nut Granola With Berries and Flaked Coconuts

– Low Carb Maven

Ingredients: macadamia nut, almonds, cacao nibs, unsweetened flaked coconut, freeze-dried raspberries or strawberries, ghee or coconut oil, egg white, Sukrin Fiber Syrup Clear or Gold, swerve, salt.

I am a recent convert to using freeze-dried fruit and if you try this amazing crunchy granola you will see why. The fruit has a much more intense flavor than fresh berries and helps to add that fruity note to the nuts and coconut flakes. It also makes this cereal more child-friendly because the fruit turns the milk pink! This granola can also be formed into bars to give you a boost of energy through the day.

Allergy-Free Healthy Keto Cereal (Contains Dairy)

– Keto Diet App

Ingredients: sunflower seed butter, shredded unsweetened coconut, hemp hearts, cinnamon, salt, chia seeds, coconut milk, water, Erythritol or swerve, almond milk, full-fat plain yogurt, fresh or frozen berries.

This is a dairy and egg free recipe for a super crunchy cereal you can enjoy on its own or with some fresh berries. It makes a great topping for yogurt and can even be crumbled and used as a crunchy base for cheesecakes. This cereal does not need to be stored in the fridge, so it makes the perfect snack for traveling, especially with kids!

Sweet Ketogenic Cereal and Granola

Coconut Oil Keto Granola

– Keto Summit

Coconut Oil Keto Granola

Ingredients: mixed nuts (e.g., almonds, hazelnuts, pecans), mixed seeds (e.g., sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds), coconut oil, stevia.

Granola needs some sort of sticky binding agent to help the clusters stick together. Many times this is something sweet, like honey or maple syrup. This keto granola recipe uses coconut oil, which offers a unique sugar-free and low-carb alternative that won’t compromise your ketosis.

Cinnamon Keto Granola

– Keto Summit

Cinnamon Keto Granola

Ingredients: almonds, pumpkin seeds, flaxmeal, chia seeds, cinnamon, shredded coconut, coconut flour, water, stevia or erythritol.

The keto-friendly cinnamon granola recipe tastes like a special treat, but it’s secretly nutritious! Enjoy this breakfast recipe that is sugar-free and sweetly satisfying.

Ingredients: chia seeds, water, hemp hearts, psyllium powder, coconut oil, organic vanilla extract, swerve, raw cacao nibs.

One of the common problems with eating a ketogenic diet is that your system can become a bit less regular than normal, so one of the best ways to sort it is to up the fiber. This cereal is loaded with fiber and can be really helpful to reset your system. It also has a hint of chocolate, making it kid-friendly too. Just serve this with your choice of milk for a healthy and filling breakfast.

Muesli Low Carb Cereal

– Low Carb Yum

Muesli has been a popular cereal worldwide for decades and it was the first experience of healthy eating for a lot of us. So low carb versions like this one are a great addition to your keto diet and give you all the goodness you need to get through the morning. You can play around with the ingredients to make it your own by adding some fruit or using different nuts.

Crunchy Cinnamon Keto Granola

It can sometimes be difficult to find a cereal that actually fills you up till lunch, so keto-compliant granola can be the answer. This one is deliciously crunchy and has a warming flavor from the cinnamon and tastes great with your favorite nut milk. Nuts can be a great source of goodness and energy, so this can also be eaten as a snack when you need a little something to keep you going.

Ingredients: sea salt, sunflower seeds, pecans, walnuts, Brasil nuts, hemp hearts, unsweetened shredded coconut, chia seeds, vanilla extract, Lakanto, hemp milk (or almond milk).

You may be surprised with this recipe that you are instructed to soak the nuts for a few hours before making the cereal, but this is to increase the nutrients in the nuts and get rid of any nasties. If you store this in individual jars in the fridge, you can make a week’s supply of this cereal at a time then just grab one in the morning to get you off to a great start.

Fennel And Ginger Grain Free Granola

This fennel and ginger granola is not only grain-free sugar-free and keto, but it is also totally unlike the flavor of any other cereal I have tried. You get a warming heat from the ginger and a fresh flavor from the aniseed fennel, giving this cereal a unique taste. You can use this recipe as a base to let you experiment with different ingredients to give different flavors and textures.

Grain Free Vanilla Mac Nut Granola

– The Coconut Mama

Ingredients: macadamia nuts, coconut flakes, egg whites, vanilla, sea salt, sweetener of choice.

Like many keto granolas, this one uses coconut flakes which can burn easily when toasted, so keep a close eye on them! This recipe is grain free and low in carbs but is packed with nutrients and flavor and makes a great topping for yogurt.

Keto Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal

– Keto Diet App

Ingredients: almond flour, flax meal, gluten-free baking powder, cinnamon, granulated erythritol or swerve, sea salt, ghee, unsweetened vanilla extract, water.

This keto recipe is a great basic one that you can enjoy as it is or use it as a carrier for other ingredients of choice. The cinnamon gives the coconut flakes a fantastic flavor and I found it didn’t really need any added sweetener. When you are baking the flakes just remember to keep checking on them so that they don’t burn, as this will give them a bitter taste.

Grain Free Cinnamon Crunch

– Ditch The Carbs

This sugar-free recipe also uses bee pollen which has proven anti-inflammatory properties and can actually help if you suffer from hay fever, especially if you can source a supply of local pollen.

Flaxseed meal is the star of this recipe and with good reason.

Flaxseed-derived ligands have been shown to reduce blood sugar and may also help combat some forms of cancer.”
