This Keto Cereal recipe is an easy, make-ahead breakfast recipe. The gluten-free cereal ingredients are a variety of nuts, chia seeds and coconut, which also make it a vegan and a low carb breakfast cereal. Plus, it’s jam-packed with antioxidants and omega-3’s.
Keto Cereal Ingredients
You’ll love the benefits of the Gluten-Free Cereal ingredients:
Benefits of Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and they are loaded with fiber, iron, and calcium.
Omega- 3 fatty acids protect against heart attack and stroke by helping raise HDL cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol. Benefits of MCT Oil
Benefits of Coconut
Coconut is high in healthy saturated fats that are much different than the saturated fats you are told to avoid.
These healthy fats boost fat burning and provide quick energy to your brain. And like chia seeds raise the HDL cholesterol in your blood
oh and did I mention it is also good for your hair and skin too.
Sweetener for Keto Cereal
You may not need to add any extra sweetener. However, if you do need additional sweeteness I recommend using a liquid sweetener. The granulated sweeteners won’t fully dissolve since this is a cold Keto Cereal Recipe.
The liquid sweetener I use is Lakanto Liquid Monk Fruit Extract. It’s zero calories, no sugar or added artificial flavoring, and has no bitter aftertaste like other sugar alternatives.
It’s perfect to carry with you on the go to sweeten drinks, coffee or even water since there are several flavors.
How to Make Keto Cereal
As you will see in the recipe and instructions below, I make the Keto Cereal blend ahead of time and store it in a large mason jar.
You chop up almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds and combine them with unsweetened coconut flakes and chia seeds.
Each morning just add 45g of the mixture, a half ounce of frozen blueberries, sweetener and unsweetened almond milk to a bowl! And you got yourself a tasty bowl of Keto Cereal.
More recently I have been adding three additional supplements to my bowl a Nootropics blend, adaptogen blend and collagen for even greater health benefits!
Optional Keto Breakfast Cereal Supplements
When adding in the supplements to my Keto cereal, I add 8oz of almond milk to a shaker cup add in the three supplements below, shake it up and then pour some of it into the Keto cereal and then drink the rest.
These are the three Keto supplements I add into my Keto Cereal Recipe every morning
Perfect Keto Nootropics- is a combination of exogenous ketones, herbs, MCTs, amino acids and collagen. The exogenous Ketones fuel cognitive function and the MCTs and grass-fed collagen peptides give you that long-lasting mental alertness and clarity. It also adds a chocolate flavor to the breakfast bowl!
Four Stigmatic Adaptogen Blend- 10 species of different adaptogens that are all widely researched including: reishi and cordyceps, ginseng, ashwagandha, tulsi, gynostemma, ginger and turmeric. I started adding this blend to help with adrenal fatigue, anxiety, calming nerves and better sleep!
Naked Nutrition Collagen- This collagen has no flavors added to it, it’s literally naked like the name implies. Super clean grass-fed collagen peptides. Collagen provides health benefits including joint health, youthful skin, healthy hair, protecting cartilage and bones, and workout recovery.
Low Carb Cereal
Whether you make your Keto cereal with or without the supplements it will be low carb, but the nutrition facts will be slightly different.
Without the Keto Supplements each breakfast bowl is 4.9g Net Carbs
With the added Keto Supplements each breakfast bowl is 5.5g Net Carbs
