Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Pork Rind Cereal

I grew up on cereal and skim milk for breakfast so finding a tasty cereal option while eating this lifestyle can be hard. While we were in Hawaii we made this recipe and it was not only a tasty breakfast, it also made a tasty and easy snack on the beach. If you are looking for a low carb homemade cereal you must try this pork rind cereal!

    This looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it once I am done with my cleanse. Going to let my daughter try it asap, she misses cereal.

  • Katerina says:

    Such a fantastic idea!! I can’t wait to try this!

  • Caroline says:

    Great idea. I was never a cereal fan myself but I can totally see me eating these as a snack. I am also going to try it with your Cajun seasoning. Thanks

  • Melinda says:

    I just made this and it is so fabulous. Like having a cinnabon in a bowl with milk. I used ghee, and almond milk. Can’t say enough about it. Will be my go to snack when I want something sweet. Easy and not expensive to make. Thanks so much for your creative mind. You make my life so much easier.

  • Brooke K says:

    Can I drink true raw milk while on the Keto Diet?? I can’t find any info on it, & we’re about to get a family dairy cow. Raw milk has such amazing health benefits & I’m praying I can drink it while eating/living a keto lifestyle. Thanks in advance 😊

  • Amanda says:

    A nice break from eggs, and fast to make. This is delicious, thanks for the recipe.

  • Amanda says:

    A nice break from eggs, and quick to make. Tastes delicious, thanks for the recipe,

  • Alisa says:

    Does this work with store bought salty pork rinds?

  • Wendy N says:

    Can you say Cinnamon Toast Crunch? Yum!

  • Amanda says:

    What are the macros for this?

  • Krissy says:

    What brand of pork rinds do you recommend? It seems if all the more natural brands (epic, pork clouds) are flavored?

  • Dee says:

    Is there something other than pork rinds we can use? We don’t eat pork.

  • krickt says:

    OMG! Made this last night, and ate it last night! This was the closest I’ve been to “real” cereal! OMG! I loved it, next time I’m making a double batch. This was fantastic! Now all I need is crunch berry flavoring, and I will never feel a need to eat cereal again, this will do it!

  • June Patterson says:

    Sounds wonderful. Cannot wait to try this

  • Shaylee says:

    Oh my goodness, Maria!!! I made this today and it was so amazingly delicious! I thought the pork rinds would go soggy with the melted coconut oil but it was so crunchy and crispy and hit the cereal spot! I was one of those kids that could eat 4 or 5 bowls of cereal, even at 30 years old, it’s hard to resist cereal. It was honestly the hardest thing to give up when I started eating ketogenic. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I can’t tell you how much I’ve benefited from all the information you provide through your blog and your wonderful cookbooks.

  • Paige says:

    I told my kids it was Cinnamon Pork Crunch and they both loved it! It’s fast and easy to make too. Thanks Maria for always finding a new way to look at foods that I would never think of making something out of. I used half butter, half coconut oil and it was really good. I bet I’ll get asked to make this one again soon and it’s easy enough that my kids can probably make it themselves if I show them how.

  • Teresa says:

    Will this keep in the refrigerator for a few days without going soggy? (Obviously without the milk). Would love to make a large batch so I don’t have to make every morning.

  • Melissa says:

    What the heck.. I just made this and it is out of this world! You are a recipe genius, Maria!

  • Margie Wochele says:

    I can tell this is going to be delicious. I use pork rinds all the time for guacamole so they are always on hand. Is this best the same day tho? Or is it something I could quadruple for the family ahead of time? Thank you for all you do!

  • Sarah Snell says:

    Thanks for this great looking delicious recipe. Always appreciated the good work. This is really an innovative and awesome work!!!

  • Lisa says:

    Really good overall. Here’s where mine needed improvement, so I’ll share. I didn’t follow the directions closely enough that called for small pieces. Some of the pieces I left were too large, and those tasted like pork rinds the most. You really need a large coating to pork rind ratio to make this work best. I will also be in search for the lowest salt pork rinds I can find, or use unsalted butter, because mine were a bit too salty. But I am totally impressed and must go shopping for the ingredients to the copycat Crunch Berries, because if I can make those I will be so happy!

  • Ruth says:

    I used half the sweetener and this was very very sweet. I will try just a teaspoon next time. Each teaspoon of swerve confectioners sweetener has 3 grams of carbs, so 2 tablespoons would give this 18 carbs! I like the concepr and will keep playing around with this recipe. 🙂

  • Alicia says:

    Oh my- I am on week two of the Cleanse and I have to say…. Maria am amazed at some of the creative recipes you have! Can’t wait to give this one a go!
