Best “Cereal” In the Whole Wide World

Best Cereal in the World

DSC00839•Vegan•Keto/Low Carb•Paleo•

This cereal is SO scrumptious it’s ridiculous! I even daydream about and get excited just to make it. It’s my all time favourite breakfast food now–you’ve got to try it out, whether you’re keto, Paleo, vegan, monkey, table or lamp!

I like to start my day with this cereal because it’s a fat bomb. It keeps my appetite low for the rest of the day while providing lasting energy for the tasks I do. In fact, I might only have one more meal that day instead of two more because it’s that satisfying.

It’s so creamy. It’s so crunchy. It just screams, “cuddle up with me!”


I do have one warning however: It’s so tasty you might overdo the carbs by eating too much nuts.

Yield: 1 big hearty bowl or 2 smaller bowls


  • 3-4 tsp butter or ghee(omit to make vegan)
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 cups Coconut/Almond/Flaxseed Milk OR Cream(18%, 35%, etc. just keep in mind the carbs(the lower the better). For example, whole milk has more carbs than table cream)
  • Sweetener to taste(optional)
  • Dash of salt
  • With two of the following*:
  • 1/3 cup crushed walnut pieces
  • 1/3 cup crushed macadamia nut pieces
  • 1/3 cup toasted flaxseeds


  1. In a metal pot on medium heat, melt the butter or ghee, if using. If not using, skip step 2 and go ahead and toast all the nuts and shredded coconut in an oven until desired smokey taste.
  2. Add in the nuts and salt to pot and stir quickly for 1-2 minutes. Then add in shredded coconut and keep stirring. making sure the bottom doesn't burn.
  3. To your pot, add your sweetener(you shouldn't need more than 1 tbsp) to the nut/coconut mixture and then quickly add your milk.
  4. Stir and turn heat off. You can serve it like this or let it soak for 10 minutes.


*Notice how I listed only nuts and seeds high in omega-3's. I want to express the importance of the balance of omega-3's to omega-6's in daily diet. Normally, we consume too much of the latter, thinking that it's healthy fats, but not knowing that with improper ratios of these two omegas, it can cause inflammation in the body. You are free to use other nuts such as cut up almond and and cashews and whatnot, but I highly recommend sticking to the ones I listed to reap full benefits and keep it healthy.



VOILA! Feel free to play with the amount of he ingredients listed above to create your desired combination. Some like it with less milk, some like a blend of milks together. I let like mine really crunchy.

      Thanks! Did you get a chance to make it yet? 🙂

    I’m allergic to Walnuts…Can I sub pecans?

    • Billie Carol

      I am too!!! (Plus I don’t even like them.) I’m wondering the same thing!
      Which nut would be best to sub? Pecans, almonds?

      • Pecans are preferred over almonds, and full flaxseeds add volume and density to your cereal so if you really don’t digest it, you might not also digest the calories it contains too, but I would go with ground up flax if you choose to use it!

        • Billie Carol

          Thanks Linda!

    • Pecans would work just fine too!

  • Judy Barnes Baker

    That’s a lot of flax in one serving. Flax seed contains hundreds of times more estrogen than soy, in fact it has much more than any other food. I’d use chia instead.

    • I was not aware Flaxseeds contained phytoestrogens! Thank you for bringing this to my attention…I will be more cautious now.

  • I LOVE coconut… what a delicious recipe!

  • jillconyers

    I didn’t know that about flax either. Hmmm. I love mixing my own nutrient dense cereals with all my favorites.

    • I did some research on phytoestrogens. Beans, legumes, flax, grains, and especially soy are particularly high in them. And here I was, thinking that flax would be even better than most nut flours because it was higher in omega 3 and contains less calories than regular almond flour, which most paleo and keto people tend to consume. Well, looks like you learn something new everyday! I would still keep flax in my pantry for that occasion of making this delicious cereal though 🙂

  • Janet Slinkard

    I took the liberty of adapting my own variation of this recipe – with excellent results! The flax seed I have on hand is raw, so after toasting the flax seed, I decided to toast the entire mixture in the oven. Mmmmmm! cold cereal! Excelllent with a bit of vanilla unsweetened almond milk.

    • Putting the ingredients in the butter in the pan already toasts them, which is why I didn’t need to place them in the oven which is more time consuming. 🙂 Glad it worked out for you! The cereal just isn’t the same, untoasted.

    Thank you so much, can’t wait to try it!

    How many carbs/serving

  • Wow, I’m always looking for new ideas for healthy breakfasts, and this sounds really yummy! 🙂

  • oh you know i love it!! trying

  • Cat

    YUM. I also love your note about the omega 3 : 6 ratio – it’s so easy to forget if you’re a nut-a-holic like me 😉

    Does it save well? As in if I eat half one day could I put the other half to the side to heat up for a later date?

    • Teresa

      Also did the carbs per serving question ever get answered?

    • It saves very well–just check your milk freshness date as most dairy free beverages only keep well for up to a week once opened.

    BTW it is interesting that phyto estrogens are good estrogens that block the xeno estrogens…interesting science..

    I calculated 102 grams of fat if using full fat coconut milk from a can, pecans, and flax. I only ate 1/2 of the recipe so I am thinking I got about 50 grams of fat. Sound right?

    • Unfortunately, I can’t say! I wish I could help you out there, Carly. If you did the calculations, it sounds about right.
