Cereal has always been the quick fast breakfast in my life, starting from when I was a kid. Part of the appeal was walking around with the bowl of cereal while I flitted around the house getting ready for school or off to work. There was no need to sit at the table with a knife and fork and work on a plate of eggs and toast. I really missed the ease of cereal in the morning when I started keto. I’ve tried a few store bought keto cereals and realized I can make my own with the same ingredients. This recipe is the basic “plain” cereal, use it as a starting point to make a low carb cereal that meets your cereal needs.

You can use maple extract instead of vanilla, add fresh or dried berries, pour almond milk on top, or put the cereal on a helping of plain yogurt, it’s very versatile and portable as you rush around in the morning.
