Simple Paleo Cereal

Simple Paleo Cereal

A few months ago I started the Paleo lifestyle. That is with some modifications to help me along. If your a seasoned pro or a first timer I hope these upcoming Paleo food choices can help you out.

Alot of recipes I find via Pinterest or Google but so far have altered all of them to suit my needs. I love changing recipes up to make them my own, its in my blood. So lets get to it!

What better way to start than with Paleo cereal!

Food for thought: I have also thought that adding honey and baking it, will bring out more of the flavor in the nuts and make “clusters”. With clusters you could still eat as cereal or as quick energizing snack.
Simple Paleo Cereal
Paleo Cereal

  • 2 c. Walnuts
  • 2 c. Pecans
  • 2 c. Almonds
  • 1/4 c. Raisins
  • 1/4 c. Dried Cranberries
  • 1/4 c. Dried Blueberries
  • 1/4 c. Dried Pomegranates

In a food processor place all nuts. Pulse until pieces are the size of granola. Mix in the fruit, toss around, and store in airtight container.

I would suggest 1 cup as a serving with coconut or almond milk over top.

[colored_box color=”red”]You can add practically any nut of choice at any ratio. I make sure all the ones I use are salt free. As for the fruits you can dry them yourself or find ones in the store with little to no added sugar. Feel free to substitute fresh fruit or no fruit at all.[/colored_box]


Paleo Coffee Cake


This morning I woke up with a coffee cake craving like non other. On a morning like this, I usually head over to the cabinet, grab my recipe box, and start cooking.

My “usual” recipe is basically an overload of sugar’s and butter. It melts in your mouth and you cant seem to keep up with how fast your spoon is moving to shovel that good stuff in.

I needed to find a recipe asap…
What I ended up with was two recipes that I thought would do the trick. So, I merged the two together and came up with the recipe below.
I would have loved to add a sugar crumb top, but it didn’t matter in the end you will be pleasantly surprised at how sweet it is 🙂


Paleo Friendly Coffee Cake

  • 1/2 c. Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c. Local Honey
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 c. Almond Flour
  • 1/2 c. Arrowroot powder or Cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Water
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Coconut or Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
Cinnamon Swirl:
  • 3 TBSP Cinnamon
  • 1/4 c. Coconut Oil
  • 3 TBSP Honey
  • Heat oven to 325*
  • In a large mixing bowl mix together dry ingredients with a whisk until well incorporated.
  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together all wet ingredients.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and whisk just until combined.
  • Grease a 8×8 pan and pour in cake mix
  • In a separate bowl combine all cinnamon swirl ingredients. Spoon overtop of cake batter and use a knife to swirl all over leaving streaks. The end product should have cinnamon swirl mix throughout.
  • Place in oven and cook for 25 minutes or until cake tester/toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before eating or if your like me….burn your mouth and eat two pieces before that 10 minutes elapse 🙂
I love to drink coffee along side of my coffee cake! Who would’ve thought? Right?
