Cinnamon Nut Cereal

If you work, some mornings you just run out of time to make breakfast or just want something simple & fast. This “cereal” is great to make & have during the week with a little bit of unsweetened almond or coconut milk. I don’t know where this came from originally, so if you know or if this is your recipe, please notify me so I can include the proper attribute. I make this cereal just about every week & like to change up the nut mixture, I’ve used hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, walnuts, and pecans in various combinations. You could probably throw in some sunflower seeds and/or pumpkin seeds instead of 1 or more of the nuts.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup sliced raw almonds
  • 2/3 cup chopped raw walnuts
  • 2/3 cup chopped raw pecans
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp equivalent sweetener (I usually use Hawaiian honey)
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 300F
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a sauce pan over medium low heat
  3. Add the sweetener and cinnamon and cook until the sweetener has dissolved, stirring occasionally
  4. Place the raw nuts in a large bowl and pour the spice mixture over the nuts and stir to evenly coat
  5. Spread the mixed nuts on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through
  7. Allow to cool and break into chunks
  8. Can serve in a bowl with dairy free milk or just eat like granola
