Cereal – A Family Favorite!

Everyone of Autumn’s brothers and sisters love cereal, and it’s also her dad’s favorite nighttime snack 😉 . Because most cereals are not all that nutritious, we try to limit cereal to once a week.  Almost always the number one requested item for a birthday breakfast is Cinnamon Toast Crunch…not exactly a health food! 🙂

Autumn, however, can have have cereal on any day of the week – due to this yummy chocolate cereal from The Charlie Foundation/Keto Cook created by – once again, the infamous Dawn Martenz.

You will find the recipe for a 3:1 ratio here: http://ketocook.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/chocolate-breakfast-cereal-handout.jpg

You can raise the ratio by using cream instead of almond milk. We also use cream so that Autumn can add in some fruit. I have, at times, modified this recipe to make a “cinnamon toast crunch” cereal as well.

Mix ingredients as directed in recipe. We make a “10 times” batch so we have quite a bit of dough that we separate onto 3  parchment lined cookie sheets:

You need to be watchful of the taste testers:

Then place another piece of parchment paper over the dough and roll out thin :

It actually works better to roll it out on the table/counter than on the cookie sheet:

Then “score” each pan of dough into bite-size pieces:

After they are all done baking, we break the pieces up and measure all the cereal:

We store all the bags in one container and keep it in the refrigerator….so we can just pop out a bag for breakfast…not just for birthdays…but any day!
