Cereal – Cinnamon Faux, Cereal Crunch - Low Carb Gluten Free

Prep Time

10 min

Prep Notes

the cereal recipe can be sweetened with the sugar substitute of your choice – just remember to add 1/2 cup of water to replace the liquid from the apple juice.  Start with the equivalent of 1/4 cup of sugar when figuring out your measurements and go from there to get it as sweet as you prefer.

This recipe is pretty easy to make too, which is an added bonus.

On another note, good quality cinnamon will really make a difference.  You don’t have to buy an expensive brand but if your cinnamon jar is from the 90’s, it’s time to throw it out and buy some fresh stuff.

Cooking Time

25 min


6 half cup servings


  • ½ cup milled flax seed
  • ½ cup hulled hemp seeds
  • 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup apple juice
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil


  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a Magic Bullet, blender or food processor. Add the apple juice and coconut oil and process until fully combined and mostly smooth.
  2. Spread the batter out on a parchment lined cookie sheet until nice and thin - about 1/16 of an inch thick. Bake in a preheated 300 degree (F) oven for 15 minutes. Lower the heat to 250 degrees (F) and bake for another 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and using a pizza cutter or knife, cut into squares about the size of the keys on your computer keyboard.
  4. Turn off the oven and put the cereal back inside for about an hour, or until it's crisp and breaks easily. If it's still soft, keep in the oven until completely dried out and crisp.
  5. Serve with unsweetened almond or coconut milk! SO good! Can't wait to hear what you guys think of it!
