Ingredients You'll Need
You'll only need 8 key ingredients to make my healthy keto cereal!
- Almond flour - super-fine unblanched almond flour.
- Egg - room temperature.
- Butter - butter or ghee at room temperature.
- Erythritol - or another sugar-free sweetener.
- Cinnamon - ground cinnamon, or it wouldn't be cinnamon crunch!
- Flax seed - for the perfect texture.
- Coconut oil
- Baking powder
How To Make Keto Cereal
In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, ground cinnamon, flax seed, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
Soften the butter or ghee in another mixing bowl, and then add the Erythritol. Beat with an electric mixer until it forms a crumbly texture.
Add in the egg and mix until a crumbly dough forms.
Combine the almond flour mixture and dough together. Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) and prepare a baking tray.
Roll out the dough between two sheets of baking paper. If it is too sticky to work with, place it in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Cut the dough sheet horizontally and vertically to create small squares of cinnamon crunch. Use a toothpick or fork to add designs to each piece.
Transfer the cut dough on the baking paper to the baking tray. Place in the freezer to set for a further 10 minutes before baking.
Bake in the preheated oven for around 10 minutes until golden.
To make the cinnamon coating mix the ground cinnamon with the Erythritol in a mixing bowl.
Brush the hot cereal with coconut oil and sprinkle over the cinnamon-Erythritol coating.
Return the tray to the oven and allow the cereal to cool for a further 10 minutes, then transfer it to a cooling rack.
The cereal will continue to harden and become more and more crispy over the next few hours. Let it rest for at least 30 minutes for an extra crispy texture.
Store your low-carb cinnamon toast crunch in an airtight container. It will keep for up to a week and is a great on-the-go breakfast.
