Cereal is a quick and easy breakfast food. Made from grains and often containing added sugar, it is also a great way to spike your blood sugar and set you up for a major crash an hour after eating. To satisfy that desire for a fast, tasty breakfast but without all the fattening carbs and insulin issues, try combining coconut flakes, nuts and some dried fruit. Paleo and low carb-friendly, "Caveman Crunch" hits the spot.
Caveman Crunch Recipe
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened flaked coconut
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- Dehydrated strawberries or other low carb berry
- Cinnamon, vanilla extract or almond extract (optional)
- Cashew, almond or coconut milk from a carton
Mix all dry ingredients. Add nut milk and flavor extracts just prior to serving. Place individual portions in mason jars (minus the liquid) and seal for an easy, instant breakfast. Vacuum seal lids for long term storage.
