Paleo Breakfast Cereal Recipe

A lot of would-be “Paleo converts” whine that they’d miss their (grain-based) cereal if they went Paleo. So here’s a neat recipe for homemade ‘Paleo Crunch’ based off of the paleo cereal made by CrossFit charity Steve’s Original, known as Paleo Krunch. I’d love to buy Paleo Krunch, Steve, I really would, but you just won’t send it to me in the UK, will ya? =)

Anyway, to all you wannabe Groks out there, here’s a solution for you to get your cereal fix – minus the inflammatory effects of grains. It takes about 15 minutes to make so you can tell your fat friends to LOSE THEIR EXCUSE!



1/2 c. coconut oil

1/2 c. raw honey

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 c. raw pumpkin seeds

1/2 c. raw sunflower seeds

1 c. almond meal

1 c. shredded, unsweetened coconut

2 c. raw slivered or chopped almonds



1. Pre-heat oven to 325 F

2.  Whisk first 3 ingredients in a small bowl.

3. Add all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix the wet ingredients with the dry.  Combine well.  On a baking sheet with small sides spread a thin layer of the mixture.  Place in oven for about 10 minutes take out and mix around a bit and place back in oven for another 5-10 minutes.  You just want it toasted, once it looks nice and toasted take out and let cool for 5 minutes.  I keep it in an air tight container in the pantry.
