Keto Cinnamon Toast Crunch – Protein-Packed Cereal

Pinterest Hidden Image

I am in heaven after discovering how to make this keto cinnamon toast crunch cereal!

I already have a healthy obsession with salty, crunchy pork rinds. They make the perfect keto snack or side dish. But I have never thought to make it into cereal until I saw someone on Instagram make cinnamon pork rinds.

I tried it immediately and loved it. Then the next day I saw someone else on my timeline dump it into milk and I was mesmerized. Why didn’t I think of that!

So I took it to a whole other level because of course, why not.

Keto Cinnamon Toast Crunch

What’s great about using pork rinds to make Keto Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal is that this is a protein-packed breakfast food (or dinner, let’s be real) especially if you add my keto granola to it!

You’ll get that recipe soon but it’s really just a mix of nuts, hemp seeds, other seeds and dried berries.

Then, I add in some Lakanto maple-flavored syrup in my almond milk and I am simply in heaven. I thought my cereal dreams were gone. Now I have this comfort food back in my life in such a healthier way!

To make this, you’ll want to make a big batch of cinnamon pork rinds first so you can have keto cereal whenever you wish.

The first step is to brown the butter. OMG, this just uplevels everything as the butter becomes nutty and sweet on its own when you brown it. Then, you’ll make your caramel sauce, coat your smashed pork rinds in this caramel sauce and store it in the fridge, ready to go.

Once you’ve made your cereal, then use a cup of it each time in a half cup of your favorite nut milk. I love it in some almond milk with a little maple-flavored syrup for extra sweetness.
