Keto Breakfast Cereal FAQs
This is best eaten in a big bowl, creamy unsweetened cashew milk, and a spoon! You could also add this to plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese for a nice crunchy topping.
Can I substitute alternatives for the pecans and almonds?
Any nuts will work, but keep in mind that the texture may change slightly. Macadamia nuts are a wonderful option and lower in carbs than almonds, but they are also more buttery. They may not produce the same crispy texture. Please note the nutritional value will change also.
Can I substitute erythritol for the monk fruit?
Yes, absolutely! You can also use a brown or golden monk fruit option which produces a much richer sweetness.
Can I use butter instead of coconut oil?
Yes! You can use them interchangeably in this recipe. The butter will make the taste more rich as well.
What milk should I use?
Any unsweetened nut milk will work. You could also use a mixture of ½ heavy cream and ½ water if you prefer.

Can I make keto cereal in an airfryer?
