Craving cereal on your low carb or grain-free diet? Fear not, you don’t have to forego the crunchy stuff with these 25 delicious homemade cereal recipes.
If you grew up in Canada like I did, you probably spent a large portion of your formative years eating Quaker Harvest Crunch for breakfast. I was never that much of a cereal fan, but a bowl of that granola from the orange box was always welcome. In fact, I was happy to eat it any time…breakfast, lunch or dinner. It was so good, so crunchy and so, so sweet. Addictively sweet. I shudder now to think of how much sugar was in what I assumed back then was a healthy option. No wonder I liked it so much.
Cereal is a tough one to give up when starting a low carb, grain-free or paleo diet. It’s easy to make, it’s tasty and it fills you up. For a little bit, anyway, before the subsequent carb crash. But you don’t have to give it up at all, as long as you are willing to make your own. And many of these recipes are almost as easy to make as grabbing the box from your cupboard and pouring cereal into your bowl. From granola to squares to hot cereals for a cold winter morning, we’ve got you covered.
