Homemade Crunchy Keto Cereal – A Favorite Low Carb Cereal

I’ve been on the lookout for a good homemade crunchy keto cereal or at least a low carb cereal since June. I saw Paleo Bread’s version of a low carb breakfast (paleo cereal), but I have enough mushy pizza in my keto life, I don’t need mushy cereal too.

Thankfully, keto has made me really appreciate coconut, which I never even liked before. I use coconut oil in my coffee to add a little delicious fat to my days, coconut butter as a little spoonful snack, and dammit I toast coconut flakes (the bigger ones, not the slivers) as a snack.

Actually, the toasted coconut flake idea came from the day I got my Goodies Box in the mail and a glorious bag of Dang Coconut Chips appeared. These things are heaven. Heaven. But they’re sweetened heaven, so they’re no good for keto.

But what about the keto coconut cereal?

Oh right! So once I perfected the keto coconut chips, I looked at them one day and decided they looked and tasted a lot like frosted flakes.

And with such a nice crispy consistency, wouldn’t it make sense to throw them in a bowl with some unsweetened almond milk?

YES IT DOES.

They’re the perfect ingredient for a homemade keto cereal. And it’s amazing. I mean, I imagine that even if I wasn’t on keto, this Homemade Crunchy Keto Cereal would taste really good. I love it with or without milk, and with fresh berries on top. It’s a great customizable breakfast option besides eggs.

So I decided to make my own toasted keto coconut chips, which can then be used for coconut chips ala keto cereal.

It’s actually ridiculously easy.

  4. Once they cool and get crispy, throw them in a ziplock bag with a tiny bit of stevia, to your liking.

Voila! I like to keep these around as a snack.

Sidenote: Before toasting, some people melt a bit of coconut oil (maybe a teaspoon, only enough to cover the coconut chips) in the microwave, then combine the chips and the oil in a ziplock bag and shake them up until they’re all covered. Then they toast them.

I don’t do this, but just thought I’d share that perspective. I also don’t think this would work well for the cereal, maybe better for the chips.
