    I was scanning the internet looking for keto recipes and found this website. I was never a big cereal eater but you know how it goes, once you cannot have something – you crave it! Recipe is easy to follow, easy to make, and very little equipment needed. The kitchen smelled wonderful while it was in the oven baking! I am very happy with the results, it tastes delicious and has that much needed crunch factor! Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    Very yum and easy to make…made it for my diabetic husband.
    Couldn’t find flax seed at local supermarket so left out and put mostly coconut chips and only a little shredded coconut.
    Trying your low carb Zucchini Muffins today.

  3. Hi

    This reminds Me of grain free granola my question is do I need to use flaxseed what is it what is the relevant of flaxseed and you have two kinds of coconut do I need to have two kinds or just one will do?

    • Hi Leilani,

      Flaxseeds are just nice high fiber seeds that go well in the mix – it’s something that I like to eat so I put it in the recipe when I created it. The 2 types of coconut are for texture, so you get some big crunchy flakes and some smaller crunchy shredded pieces – you’re welcome to just use one type, but I like the combination of the 2.

      There are no real scientific or fancy reasons, it’s just a mixture of things that I like in a cereal 🙂 I hope that helps.

  4. I love your keto cereal and make it regularly it is a real staple in our household. Many thanks for all the work you put into developing your recipes, much appreciated.

  5. What are the little white seeds in this cereal are those the chia seeds you used or Is that from the Flax? My chia seeds are black/brown and yours look white….haven’t made this yet but looks delish, can you eat in coconut milk, unsweetened type or will that add more carbs?

    • Hi Chris,

      Chia seeds come in both a black and white color – I use the white ones as they tend to look a bit nicer when mixed with paler ingredients – like in our Chia Pudding.

      As for using unsweetened coconut milk – it would depend on the brand. Our nutrition is based on the unsweetened almond breeze, as is available almost worldwide. I would suggest comparing your milk to it to see if the carb count needs to be adjusted. I hope that helps!

  6. I LOVE a keto granola, no matter the ingredients! So versatile. I put it on yogurt, ice cream, whip cream, waffles, peanut butter roll ups…. there’s no limit, haha. Thanks for sharing!

    I have been remiss in not reading and commenting on this recipe until now. This is by far the BEST lo carb cereal/granola!! I’ve been making it for months now and get rave reviews from everyone I share it with. Thank you so much for posting!

  8. 5 stars
    Seriously, this is absolutely DELICIOUS!! I tried another recipe of Keto cereal, and while it was okay, it wasn’t anything to write home about. This? Just go ahead and make a double batch, you’ll thank me! I used only shredded coconut as I didn’t have the flakes on hand. I also used “Monkfruit in the Raw” (it’s a combo of Monkfruit and Erythritol) for my sugar, measuring it the same as the recipe indicates. Thank you, I’m so happy to have found this.

    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!

    • Hi Nick,

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 5 stars
    This cereal is absolutely amazing- better than any cereal I have ever had from the store, regardless of carb count.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

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

    • 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 🙂

    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!

  17. 5 stars
    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.

  18. 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.


  19. 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 🙂

  20. 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.


  21. 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.

  22. 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!

  23. 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.
