Keto Cinnamon Crunch Granola Cereal is simple to prepare and bake in advance, store in an airtight container, and have ready to use for a quick bowl of low carb cereal in the morning or a munchy crunchy snack.
Keto, paleo, gluten-free & vegetarian, this crunchy, nutty, and lightly sweet, low carb granola cereal with hints of cinnamon is perfect with your favorite low carb, unsweetened nut milk.
You can bake this granola in advance and store granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
That way you have a quick & fast breakfast that is ready to serve on those busy mornings when you just don’t have time to cook.
I served my granola with unsweetened vanilla almond milk for cereal, or a handful right out of the container for a crunchy, munchy granola snack.
This granola cereal is full of healthy fats that are super filling and satisfying. You will stay full for much longer than traditional, high carb boxed cereals.
Common Questions About the Keto Cinnamon Crunch Granola Cereal Recipe
You can simply omit the flax meal or replace it with hemp hearts or chia seeds.
No, you really need to separate the egg and use the egg whites only. But you can save the yolks to make an omelet, quiche or some people even add an egg yolk to their dog’s dry food for extra nutrition. I use organic egg whites that are sold in a carton that way I don’t have extra yolks.
Store the granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. No refrigeration needed.
