Paleo Coconut Cinnamon Cereal

Adapted from Delicious Obsessions

  • 1 cup (120 g) unsweetened shredded coconut 
  • ½ cup (64 g) raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup (118 ml) maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon melted coconut oil 

I've had this requested as a gift - good enough to wrap with a bow

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) . 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 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. With a wet knife, score the dough into 1-inch squares. (I typically skip rolling pin and just use a kitchen tool with a flat edge and scrape the mixture until very thin, and then use the same tool to score the cereal).

Place in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and let sit on the pan for 15 minutes to allow it to crisp up. Store in an airtight jar.

I love this - makes a great snack too!
