  1. I made this and LOVED it so much that I started putting it in everything! If anyone has made the sugar free flour-less almond butter cookies, this yummy mixture is an amazing addition to those! I sometimes use butter in place of the coconut oil in this cereal recipe. Delish!
    Thanks, honey, bunches (of oats)!
    See what I did there???

    • Hi Tammy,

      I see what you did there 🙂 Thank you for your kind words and such a great idea adding the mixture into cookies! I’ll have to try it.


    • Hi Lou,

      You might be viewing the page via the “no frills” AMP version which cuts off our nutritional information card. Scroll to the bottom and click View Non-AMP to see the full page 🙂


  2. My son and I are totally in love with this! I hadn’t realized how much I *missed* cereal until I had a bowl of this. We found the recipe to be too sweet for our taste, so we doubled all the ingredients except the sweetener and that was perfect. For milk we mix 2/3c water and 1/3c heavy whipping cream, and each of us uses half of that for our bowl of cereal. We do have to keep it in the fridge, especially during the summer. It’s totally yummy!

  3. I rarely think keto shenanigans recipes are worth eating, let alone making again, but this breaks the mold. SO GOOD.
    Better than traditional cereal in every way!!
    Stays delightfully crunchy.
    I did stir in one foamed egg white for a half recipe which made it brown beautifully.

  4. I made this today and the flavor is outstanding! My only thing about it I’m not completely thrilled with is the lack of clumps of nuts and seeds. I put some pecan pieces in hoping they would form some clumps with the nuts, but it didn’t really help. I’m wondering if a thicker liquid would make a difference. Perhaps Sukrin gold syrup instead of coconut oil and sweetener? Could maybe add some maple flavoring to it. You might not be able to find Sukrin in the UK, but it is accessible through Amazon. Would maybe some of your followers from the US have an opinion about this?

    • Hi Marijane,

      The cereal won’t clump as there is nothing sticky in the recipe to help the pieces form clumps. We don’t have sukrin in Australia, so I can’t be sure how it would work. You could try adding one egg white that has been beaten to a foam and mixing through before baking.

      If you don’t wish to use eggs, another way would be to soak 2 tablespoons of the chia seeds 6 tablespoons water until it forms a gel and then mix it through before baking.

      Please let me know how you go if you try one of these.


  5. Hi Amanda,

    The coconut oil doesn’t completely soak into the nuts and seeds and will leave them with a shiny surface. If your cereal is “dripping” wet there might be too much coconut oil added. I hope that helps 🙂

  6. Hi, I am making this right now (can’t wait to try it)! I know this makes 12 servings, but can you please tell me the exact serving size? I want to make sure I keep myself honest and track properly. Thank you!

    • Hi Lauren,

      The serving size is half a cup – if you can’t see the serving size check the post above the recipe, we always put the serving amount there.


  7. This is delicious! I doubled the recipe ~Maybe next time I would use a little less coconut oil. My daughter and I love it. Very satisfying.

  8. I made this last night. It’s super easy and is it ever delicious! Next time, I think I’ll also add pecans as well, as that is my mother in law’s favorite nut to eat! I’ll also have to double the recipe as everyone in the house loves it!

    • Hi Susana,

      You can store either at room temperature or in the fridge. I store it in the fridge because cold cereal is perfect on a hot day 🙂

  9. If I don’t have coconut flakes, should I just double the shredded coconut? Or would another nut be a better substitution? Thanks!

  10. Any ideas what could replace the shredded and flaked coconut? I’ve been trying to figure this out for several recipients. I would really like to try this but our family does not like coconut.

  11. Wow!! I was so happy to see last night that I had all of the ingredients except the flax seeds, so I threw all these ingredients together and am enjoying them this morning on my homemade Gree yogurt…delish!! This is really giving me my cereal satisfaction. I did substitute some ground flax for the flax seeds and it seems to have worked beautifully. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and couldn’t be happier with the results! Thank you thank you for posting this!

  12. Wow this stuff is amazing! I made some changes: used MCT oil and monkfruit sweetener and seriously
    Amazing!! I never reply to these things but had to tell you good job

  13. Every now and then I want a crunchy cereal. This sounds absolutely awesome. Have all the ingredients, now to take the time to make it.

    • Hi Nick,

      Depending on your tastes you might like unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk or macadamia milk. Just be sure to check the label!

  14. On my goodness! I now finally have a fast and easy breakfast item that helps w my cereal cravings. I used ground flax meal instead of the whole flaxseeds because I didn’t have any and it turned out wonderfully well. Thanks so much for this recipe!
