You can still enjoy cereal in the morning or for a snack even if you're on the paleo diet.


  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon melted coconut oil


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the coconut shreds and sunflower seeds in a food processor and grind for 30 seconds.
  • Add the cinnamon, salt, maple syrup, egg, and coconut oil and pulse until combined, about 2 minutes.
  • Scoop the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Cover with a second piece of parchment paper and with a rolling pin, roll to ¼-inch thick. Remove and discard the top piece of parchment paper.
  • With a wet knife, score the dough into 1-inch squares.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and let sit on the pan for 15 minutes to allow it to crisp up.

    1. Sure give it a try. I was actually thinking of trying some other nuts too. I want to try almonds or macadamia nuts. Although cashews would lend a sweet flavor. Mmmmm. Let me know what you come up with!

  1. I am doing whole30 and cannot have the maple sugar. Could applesauce or something else be substituted, or left out completely?
