I was looking through my cookbook Paleo Eats and it just dawned on me that I hadn’t share the recipe for Paleo Coconut Cinnamon Cereal on my blog. Duh!
This recipe is an upgraded version of my Paleo Cinnamon Toast Crunch recipe and seriously, you won’t believe how easy and delicious this recipe is to make. I also filmed a cooking video showing how to make this amazing paleo cereal.
This recipe is hands down my favorite and easy paleo breakfast recipe from my cookbook Paleo Eats. I’ve heard from many mom’s it also make the perfect on the go snack for their kiddos.
Paleo Coconut Cinnamon Cereal
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place the coconut shreds and sunflower seeds in a food processor and grind for 30 seconds.
- Add the cinnamon, salt, maple syrup, egg, and melted coconut oil and pulse until combined, about 2 minutes.
- Scoop the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Cover with a second piece of parchment paper and with a rolling pin, roll to ¼-inch thick. Remove and discard the top piece of parchment paper.

Made this today and it is so good. Tastes just like this gluten free granola I was buying from Amazon. Now, I don’t have to! I substituted pumpkin seeds for the sunflower and it turned out great. Thank you!
So cool! This is a family favorite in my house too!
Hi! In your video you say to bake for 20mins, but on the recipe it says 10-15.
I would check it in 10 to 15 minutes to more sure it’s browning. It can take longer though.
