    This looks great. I’m not sure any stores near me have pecan meal. I wonder if I could just chop some pecans?

    In the instruction I tell you how to make it yourself. I made both of the almond and pecan flour/meal myself.

    I don’t have a coffee grinder or even a food processor. I have a blender, and it’s not even a good one.

    Well then Stuart put them in a bag and pound away and make the nuts into a fine powder…it would work.

    Thanks, Halle! Maybe I’ll have to invest in a coffee grinder one of these days — they aren’t as expensive as I thought.

    I’m so hungry reading this (and it’s breakfast time in Aus)!! Must buy a dehydrator and ween myself onto coconut! Anyone had problems consuming coconut when they first had virgin oil? I did, felt really unwell in gut, and not sure if that’s normal initially or related to my crohns.

    start consuming coconut oil in small steps. 1 tsp the first week and gradually move up to 2 tsp the next week and see if that works better for you.

    My lowest setting is still probably 200-250 degrees (gas)… Is it supposed to be that high? Or should I cook for less time? Thanks!! (and nope, don’t have a pilot light)

    Ideally it is best to stay at 165F. You could do it at your temperature and do it for less time but it might toast the nuts which you don’t want. I would recommend that you leave your door to your oven slightly a jared which will allow some of the heat to escape and not be so hot.

    Thank you! I’m guessing my hubby would have a cow if I left the oven on that long! (it’s a pain going to the tiendas here to find 25 gal propane tanks!) =]

    oh my, no I wouldn’t leave it on that long either!

    Your cereal looks delicious, and you certainly can’t go wrong with cinnamon and honey flavours! This is a great wholesome alternative to store bought cereal.

    Delicious! I love that it’s Paleo and GAPs :) Great for a Gut Healing breakfast :)

    Halle, do you think I’d be ok if my oven only goes down to 170 (for soaking/dehydrating the nuts)? Hate to bother trying to figure out how to reset the default for a mere 20 degrees!

  24. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition
    February 27, 2013

    You would be fine with 170. If you think it is to hot, prop the door slightly open. I sometimes just slide a metal spoon in b/w the door and oven to allow some of the heat to escape.

    Btw, this recipe couldn’t have come at a better time. I actually just decided to experiment with a wheat free diet for a week or two to see how it goes. I doubt it is sustainable unless I can find great recipes like this! Thanks!

    This recipe is awesome! I use a dehydrator and the texture and crunch factor are great. I made a few adjustments to my recipe. I add 3 Tbs of organic coconut sugar, use 1 can of lite coconut milk and 1/4 C almond milk instead of cow’s milk.  Delich

    Mmmmm… I made this cereal, substituting different nut flours for what I had on hand, and it was delicious! My kids liked it, too. We’ve polished it off now, but my favourite part was how it took about half as much to fill me up and it retained it’s crunch nicely.

    I have made this exact recipe and it is so easy and delicious. Plus, I found that I can have a smaller serving and be completely satisfied with it. Yum!

    I sure would like to hear if anyone has successfully substituted the coconut flour for something else. I’m so thrilled to find this recipe, but I don’t digest coconut fiber well at all! Thanks!

    I really love your site.. Great colors & theme.
    Did you create this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my own personal site and would
    love to find out where you got this from or just what the theme is called.

    What can I substitute for coconut flour? almond meal maybe? that’s all I have and I would love to make these, they sound sooooo delicious!!!

      Coconut flour is a tricky flour to work with and is not easily substituted. I really don’t have a recommendation for you, sorry.
