So…one of my “food-creation goals” since I started eating Paleo two years ago, was to come up with a cereal (other than granola-type cereals). And here it is! These also make great cinnamon crackers for an on-the-go snack! Oh and by the way–for all of you who can’t eat eggs–this is for you!!
Cinnamon Crunchies (cereal or crackers)
1 cup almond flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
1 Tbsp. ground white chia seed + 3 Tbsp. water (or 1 egg in place of the chia seed and water)
1 Tbsp. coconut oil, softened
1 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
(optional for sprinkling on top):
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. coconut sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix together almond flour, ground chia, water, coconut oil, honey, 1 tsp. cinnamon and salt.
3. Roll dough out between two pieces of parchment paper. (I rolled mine into a very thin rectangle approximately 10″x15″–it doesn’t have to have perfectly straight edges–mine weren’t even close to straight!)
4. Carefully peel off the top layer of parchment paper. Place the bottom layer with the dough unto a baking sheet.
5. (Optional) Combine 1/4 tsp. cinnamon with 1 1/2 tsp. coconut sugar and sprinkle some of the mixture on top of the dough. I used just a small amount of the mixture!
6. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and cut into squares (I used a pizza cutter and cut mine into small, Cinnamon Toast Crunch sized pieces).
7. Return pan to oven and bake 2-5 more minutes or until lightly browned. Because I didn’t get my dough perfectly even in thickness, the outer pieces were done first. I removed the pan every couple minutes and would take off the pieces that were lightly browned.
8. Place cereal/cracker pieces unto a cooling rack to cool completely.
9. Eat plain or in a bowl with your favorite milk! (I like almond milk.)
*The “crunchiness” of your crackers/cereal depends on how thin you roll it out and how long you bake it. There is a fine line between “done” and burnt…so watch it carefully! The thinner you make it, the crunchier it will be.This post contains affiliate links for which I may receive compensation. Thanks you for your support!
