Thin Mint Cereal

Thin Mint Cereal

I grew up on cereal and skim milk. I often had it as a ‘bed-night-snack’ as a kid. Habits are hard to break and that one was probably my hardest habit I had to stop.

If you haven’t heard already, Girl Scouts is coming out with a new cereal line. So far they have a caramel cereal as well as a Thin Mint cereal. I thought it would be fun to recreate a Keto Girl Scout cereal line! But seriously, if you trying to transition off cereal with your family, you MUST try this Thin Mint Cereal!

Thin Mint Cereal
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • ½ cup vanilla egg white protein
  • ¾ cup almond flour or peanut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup coconut oil OR NATURAL almond butter
  • 4 tablespoons Swerve confectioners
  • 2 tablespoons water (just enough to hold dough together)
  • 2 teaspoons mint extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together the protein powder, nut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the almond butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Add extract and water.
  2. Place parchment onto cookie sheets. Spread out cereal on parchment. Bake for 7-10 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are lightly browned (I broke up pieces and baked another 3 minutes to crisp up the pieces). Remove from oven to cool. Makes 3-4 servings.
  3. ***You could also use coconut oil in place of the almond butter. This would allow you to store longer since coconut oil is shelf stable and doesn’t need to be refrigerated. Serve with Unsweetened Cashew Milk! YUM

“Hi Maria, I have just watched my 1st podcast, thank you! Not only did you share such amazing nutritional information – but your experiences with family. You made ‘me’ feel that I am not alone – listening to you share your experience about eating food that someone has cooked for you when knowing they have added an ingredient that you don’t eat was touching. I understood exactly what you were feeling. Thank you for sharing that – it makes you all the more ‘real’ to me, especially that I am so far away.”

  • Debbie says:

    Do you roll out and put on the parchment paper? How do you bake it?

    • Marjorie B. says:

      When I made it, I spread it out on the parchment, but did not flatten it out (so that the pieces would be kind of chunky).

      Maria, THANK YOU for this recipe–I just love it, and it’s a treat to have cereal again after many years. This is so much better than regular cereal, and the chocolate mint flavor is an added bonus. 🙂

  • Philip says:

    How can I replace the protein powder?
    I don’t like using it when baking, way to precious

  • Carol says:

    Would it be possible to reference your cookbook that the recipe is listed in? Then i can just reference your cookbook and not print out the recipe. Just a thought… thanks

  • Darlene says:

    Thank you, I have been waiting for this!

  • Amy says:

    What did I do wrong? Mine were soft when they came out.

  • Kelli Vetterkind says:

    Also wondering if these are rolled. Also noticed the directions did not say when to add the Swerve. I added with the dry ingredients. Thanks!

  • Rachel says:

    Do you have to use the whey or egg protein? What else could I sub for those? I don’t use either.

  • Michelle says:


    Just starting the 30 day cleanse. Is this ok for a snack – or is for when a person is keti-adapted?

    Thank you – Michelle

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      For the cleanse book I try to keep people sweetener free for the 30 days to help pallets adjust away from sweetness. 🙂

  • coco says:

    I feel like the directions are missing a step? between 1 and 2? :0) so after it’s mixed, spread it out onto the parchement paper??

  • HeatherW says:

    I’m so happy right now, the thin mint cookies were my fav. but now this will be.

  • JAMIE LYNNE says:

    I’d like to second what Kelli V. above said…. it doesn’t say when to add the Swerve! I had it all spread out on my baking sheet before I realized I hadn’t added it. It was easy to pop back in the bowl and add it (I added only half the amount….too sweet otherwise), but it might be a good idea to add that to the instructions…. or was that a trick to wean us off the sweetener altogether? 😉
