One of my favorite nut free keto breakfast recipes
Nut free keto cereal is the ultimate low-carb way to start your day. It’s high in fiber and protein and low in carbs, meaning you only need a little to feel satiated. I’ve kept the base of this recipe quite simple so that you can customize it to suit your own taste preferences!
To take this nut free cereal to the next level, add keto-friendly chocolate pieces, a sprinkle of cinnamon and pumpkin spice, or even add some fresh berries. See? It’s all up to you!
The sweetener in this recipe is optional, but I definitely recommend it for those that have a sweet tooth.
Toasting the ingredients in low carb cereal
I love to toast the ingredients in this low carb cereal because it really enhances the flavor of the seeds and coconut. Once cooled, it becomes so crispy and yummy!
Super simple nut-free keto cereal
This keto and low carb cereal is so easy to make. It requires just 5 minutes of hands-on cooking time and 15-20 minutes of baking in the oven.
Note: If you’re not adding sweetener, it may not take quite as long. Be sure to keep an eye on it! As soon as it turns into a nice golden color, it’s done!
Net carbs in this keto cereal
Each bowl of this nut free cereal contains only 5.3 grams of net carbs per serving. How awesome is that? I like to serve it with a dollop of Greek or coconut yogurt on top, or with some coconut milk and some fresh berries.
This recipe yields 6 servings in total, so you can store and enjoy it over a few mornings.
Sweetened with monk fruit sweetener
I use monk fruit sweetener to sweeten this keto cereal, but if you’d prefer, you can sub in erythritol or Swerve if you prefer at a 1:1 ratio.
Depending on your sweetness preferences, and whether you’re adding something else bitter like raw cacao, you might like to add a little more or a little less sweetener. Is using Lakanto, either the Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener or Classic Monk Fruit Sweetener would be delicious!
What materials you need to make this recipe
This recipe is so easy to make. In terms of equipment, you will need a mixing bowl, spatula, and baking pan.
This seed-based cereal is great for those of you who, like me, have a nut allergy or intolerance. It’s packed with high fiber seeds and two types of coconut (coconuts are not nuts, by the way!).
I love coconut because not only is it incredibly delicious, it’s full of healthy fats (your best friend on the keto diet)! The different textures of this dish combined with coconut chips add to the overall crunch of this amazing low-carb cereal.
Storage of this nut free keto cereal
The best way to store this keto cereal is in a sealed glass jar or an airtight container kept at room temperature. Storing the cereal like this should ensure it stays fresh for up to 2 weeks. Make sure the cereal is fully cooled before storing so that it stays nice and crunchy.
