  • In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, 3/4 cup Coconut sugar, salt and cinnamon until well mixed.
  • Add in the egg white and melted coconut oil. Using your hands, press the mixture together until it begins to moisten and you can pack it into a ball.
  • Place half the dough between two large pieces of parchment paper and roll out until VERY thin, about 1/16 inch thick.
  • Cut the dough into 3/4 inch squares and gently transfer to the prepared sheets. * Repeat with remaining dough **
  • Sprinkle the remaining 2 tsp of Coconut sugar over the squares and bake until they just turn golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. They burn very quickly so watch them closely in that last minute. Mine were perfect at 3.5 minutes. They will not be crunchy when they come out of the oven.
  • Let the squares cool on the pan completely and then DEVOUR.


* It's a little tedious to transfer every square to the paper, so I gently slide my knife under about 3 squares at a time, and then flipped them onto the pan and separated them a little bit.
EDITED: I had had readers tell me they leave the squares cut right on the same parchment paper, without separating them, then bake them. Apparently they break apart once cooled! BUT, the ones in the center are a little chewy this way!
** You could probably do all the dough at once, I just find it more manageable in 2 smaller chunks.
Cereal is best stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator to maintain optimal crunchiness!
