Low Carb Warm Paleo Cereal. I have made and eaten this from time to time and really, I should eat more of it but the problem is, I have so many things I should eat more of. This low carb paleo cereal is definitely different in that it has no almond flour and no coconut flour. I guess the closest thing I can think to compare it with is cream of wheat, malt-o-meal, and maybe even oatmeal. It can be finished in a multitude of ways, and I have tried to show several of them. I think the secret is the way it is finished and…though it has no coconut flour, it has the divine essence of coconut via the dried desiccated coconut in it. The ways in which this cereal can be made and sweetened are probably infinite and these are 4 ways I make it: 1). With 40% Heavy Cream 2). With 2 T Heavy Cream & 1 drop of EZ-Sweetz 3. 2 T Yogurt & Berries 4). ½ T Just Like Sugar Brown, 1T Butter, & 2 T 40% Heavy Cream or Coconut Milk. After that, you can probably come up with your own combinations and any one of my combos end up LCHF and yes, it is both good and fast just plain too. When I was a kid I loved oatmeal with butter, brown sugar and a little milk so #4) is definitely my favorite but for variation, I eat it every way listed.
I have just made a(nother) batch of this divine cereal and this time I toasted my nuts. What a difference in taste. The first thing that hit me was the smell I got after adding the hot water and in just continued until I was finished eating it. I don’t necessarily advocate toasting the nuts as if you are not careful, you can toast them too much and let’s face it, nuts are expensive enough so in my world, burning them is a no-no. Anyway, it’s just one more option and it really is good. So, the first row of pics is the untoasted and the second row is toasted. Both are terrific.
I am giving this recipe as a single unsweetened serving so you can try it once and if you love it (you will) I have also given you a recipe for about 24-25 servings. If you want to feed your children a healthy stick-with-you until noon breakfast, this is what you will want to give them and probably best to make it in bulk. Better not to tell the low carb police cause they would have a cow. And then again for kids, you can add a bit of maple syrup or honey and more fruit if wanted. For you low carb adults, if you like maple you might try this Sugar-Free Maple Syrup.

- 2 T Desiccated Coconut
- 1½ T Ground Walnuts
- 1½ T Ground Pecans
- 1 T Ground Flaxseed Meal (Doesn't Matter What Color And I Used Golden)
- ¼ t Ground Chia Seed
- ⅛ t Cinnamon Powder
- ⅓ C Hot Water
- 2¼ C Desiccated Coconut
- 1¾ C Ground Walnuts
- 1¾ C Ground Pecans
- 1 C+2 T Flaxseed Meal
- 1 T Ground Chia Seed
- 2½ t Cinnamon Powder
- Dump nuts, ground chia seeds, flaxseed meal and cinnamon into processor and give it 10-12 pulses to break up the larger nuts. Now give it 10-12 longer pulses and check the consistency. If the nut pieces are still too large continue longer pulses until quite fine. The secret to not turning your nuts into butter is to put them in the processor with the ingredients listed.
- Put into large mixing bowl and bend in the coconut, stirring until well incorporated.
- Measure ⅓ C dry mix, put into a cereal bowl large enough to add anything additional you may wish, add ⅓ C HOT water, stir well and allow to sit 3-4 minutes. It will thicken.

- Each one serving is equal to ⅓ C of cereal and ⅓ C HOT water so if you end up making it in bulk that's the ratio you use per one serving.
- If you make this in bulk you can buy ground pecans and ground walnuts in 1 lb. bags which seems the easiest way to go. If purchased this way I would keep the nuts frozen before and after each use because as we know, the oils in nuts will go rancid after a while. There should be approx. 3½ C per 1 lb. nuts.
- If wanted add a little more cinnamon.
- With any size family at all making this in bulk is the only way to go. Put into appropriate sized container, cover, and enjoy anytime. I guarantee you, it won't last very long.
