Easy keto cereal recipe for breakfast and ketogenic diet. Use nuts and seeds to make low carb cereal. Use walnuts, pecans, and almonds.


Pan Toasting:

Dry toast the walnuts and pecans in a large pan on medium heat. Continually toss and stir for 8-10 minutes. Add the sliced almonds and continue to stir for another 8-10 minutes. The nuts will turn slightly brown and start to smell good. Remove them from the pan to cool.

Toast all the seeds for about 8-10 minutes. Make sure to continually toss and stir or they will burn. The seeds will become shiny and start to pop when they are almost done. Add salt near the end, then remove them from the pan.

Oven Roasting

You can roast the nuts and seeds in an oven at 350°F. Evenly spread the nuts and seeds across two separate baking trays. Roast them for about 8-10 minutes. Stir/shake them halfway through. They will be done when golden brown and fragrant. It's best practice to err on undercooking rather than overcooking the first time. Practice makes perfect!

Squeeze and crush the toasted nuts a few times in a large bowl. Add the toasted seeds, coconut flakes, and cocoa nibs. Mix the ingredients together. Store in quart jars or a reusable container. Eat this cereal with almond milk. Add a couple drops of liquid stevia and vanilla extract. Optional: add some berries or cinnamon on top.

Cooking Tips

  • When toasting the nuts and seeds, place them onto a flat metal tray to remove the heat and immediately stop cooking.
  • Change the amount of any ingredient to suit your tastes. You could add more coconut, cocoa nibs, or your favorite spices.
  • Add a tablespoon of coconut oil to each batch before roasting. It will help bind and flavor the ingredients.
  • Use coconut milk or Coconut Yogurt for keto friendly ingredients.
  • This recipe makes a yummy trail mix.

Weight Loss

Losing weight is all about finding recipes that fit your lifestyle. My keto cereal is a quick meal to make in the morning before work. It’s a well portioned amount of food to eat when you are busy. If you structure in meals like this one, you will be more likely to lose weight. My Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake is another easy go to recipe.

My cereal is a satisfying meal with dense nutrition. Each serving has 12g of fiber, which is half your daily value. Fiber makes you feel full and encourages gut bacteria. Nuts and seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for brain and heart health. Cocoa nibs are one of the highest foods in magnesium, which is an essential nutrient involved in over 300 bio-chemical reactions. If you would like to get optimal levels of magnesium, take Magnesium Citrate on a daily basis. It is one of the few vitamins/minerals I consistenyl recommend. 

My cereal features over a dozen of my favorite Keto Foods. Nuts and seeds can be purchased in bulk online and stored for months. It’s ok to add a few fresh berries on top. Blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries have 4 net carbs per 1/4 cup. Eating nutritionally dense foods is just as important as eating low carb. I hope you enjoy my keto cereal recipe!

Nuts have a great ratio of macronutrients for your keto diet. They are high in fat, fiber, and protein. The only nut you should avoid is the cashew. Cashews have a large amount of carbs with very little fiber. Peanuts, almondswalnutspecans, macadamia nuts, and small portions of pistachios are all keto friendly. Buy them in bulk online and freeze for longterm storage. Nuts are a nutritionally dense food that make a great keto snack! 


Seeds, like nuts, have a great ratio of macronutrients. They are high in fat, fiber, and protein. Chia seedsflaxseed, and hemp seeds are staple foods in my pantry. I buy them online in bulk and freeze for longterm storage. If you are allergic to nuts, seeds are your best alternative. Sunflower butter is a popular ingredient among people with nut allergies. View my Toasted Seeds recipe for a great crunchy garnish to add on top of all your recipes.

Cocoa Nibs

Cocoa nibs are a flavorful ingredient to enjoy on the keto diet. One tablespoon of cocoa nibs has 50 calories, 4g fat, 1g net carbs, and 2g protein. Cocoa is one of the highest sources of magnesium in a whole food, an important mineral for health. Studies show magnesium deficiency is high among Americans. Eating cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, and dark chocolate will increase your levels of magnesium. Try my Keto Chocolate Mousse for a magnesium rich dessert!

Almond Milk

Almond milk is a low carb and low calorie alternative to dairy. The nutrition on my Silk Almond Milk container is 30 calories, 2.5g fat, <1g net carbs, and 1g protein. It's the perfect ingredient to purchase for weight loss. Buy it in bulk online. It does not need to be refrigerated until after it is opened. I often add a couple drops of Liquid Stevia and Vanilla Extract to glass of almond milk for a quick keto drink.
