Grain [& nut] FREE Cereal :)

We have missed cereal-bad. Thank God for the woman who created this recipe! Now we can pour ice cold milk over our cinnamon toast crunch [health edition] cereal, and enjoy its crispy crunchy goodness. Oh, and don't be intimidated by the thought of making cereal. It's way easier than I thought, and probably easier than you think too.

A few little extras to add to her recipe:

I (accidentally) found that adding about 1.5 tsp of coconut oil to the recipe eliminated 
the dough sticking to the parchment paper, problem

I cut the squares with a pizza cutter


I also used honey instead of maple (if you use maple, be sure and use the real thing-it may taste weird otherwise)

Make sure to use real coconut shreds

I blended the chia seeds separately in my coffee grinder-keeps those pesky seeds from hanging out in our front teeth (my thought is that it may be easier on the digestive system this way as well)

Ok, try not to eat it all at one time. I dare you.


  1. I'm so glad that you enjoy it! It's so nice to have cereal again and great tip about the coconut oil!

  2. Kelly, thank you for this recipe!! You have made my four year old's world! (and mine too;)
