Caveman Crunch


One of my go to breakfasts before I went Paleo was cereal and I was bummed when I thought I had to lose it.  Luckily for you, I missed it so much I decided to make a recipe that tastes better than any cereal I have ever tasted and you get to get quick breakfasts on the go or snacks when needed.  Forewarning, this recipe has been know to cause addiction and I am not sorry.  I hope you love it and make sure you leave me a comment with your favorite way of eating this recipe.

  1. Just wanted to say I absolutely LOVE how this turned out! I’m not paleo but my nutritionist told me to look this up. Keep up the great work! :)

  2. Could you recommend substituting something for the almond meal and almonds? My daughter is allergic to almonds :(
    Looks like a fantastic recipe!

  3. I love this recipe! I have made it about 4 times now and change it up a bit each time. Sometimes I half the coconut and add hemp seed. I also like to use 1 part almond flour and 1 part flax meal to give it some extra fiber.

  4. I’ve been making variations of this since I ran out of Almond meal on one try. Instead, I used an additional cup of shredded coconut instead of Almond meal and it still came out pretty good.

  5. Oh my goodness! This is just so yummy. I was skeptical because on their own I don’t really like sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds but this recipe is awesome! I had to eat some as soon as I made it! Thanks :-)

  6. Yes, seriously addictive! Have been eating for breakfast and as a snack with a couple of tablespoons of kefir (although this is probably not strictly paleo? ) It is so delicious! Thanks for a wonderful recipe

  7. I made this this morning for breakfast! So delicious…I do like the taste of chocolate, so I used 1/2 cocoa butter and 1/2 coconut oil, and added about 1/2 tsp. of salt. I kept eating it raw before I put it in the oven. SO good! I also used parchment paper instead of foil, because I have read too much use of foil/aluminum can contribute to Alzheimer’s Disease. I want to keep all the brain cells I have left!

    Thanks, George. Another winner!

  8. Oh my goodness! I just made this yesterday, it is so freaking good! Seriously going to have to hide it from myself so I don’t eat it all right away =) Love the cocoa powder and cinnamon combo, gives it nice depth of flavor with that warm spice to it! Well done sir, well done

  9. Cereal, again! And more delicious than I expected. The batch I made was accidentally left in a little too long, but I’m ignoring the char taste – because the crunch, choco, and cinnamon flavor outweigh it all. I’ve been getting by with about 1/2 c for snack (dessert the past 2 nights), and it’s been satisfying and incredible.
    I can’t wait to go through it all so that I can make more and experiment with spices, amount of cocoa, dried fruits, and different nut combinations. As it is: I didn’t do all almonds, but a blend of brazil, macadamia, walnuts, pecans, almonds – all that I had in my cupboard.
    Am definitely passing this one on, as well. Thank you!

  10. I just made this and I want to cry. You know how long it’s been since I’ve had cereal?! My long lost love?! This is amazing! WORTHY OF A HUGE VIRTUAL HUG! Thank you! :)
