Crunchy Gluten Free Granola Cereal

In truth, I started my week off in a bad mood. I'm always the first to say, "stop with the negative talk", but today really hit me the wrong way. I felt off from the second I got out of bed and let it ruin me for a good portion of the day. Things just weren't going my way and well, yeah…I had a serious case of the Mondays.

Well, I've decided enough of the negative talk. Somebody posted on my instagram feed that it's all in how you look at it and I'm going to make today better! I'm working on some new projects and I need to look at the adventure part of these things and embrace the change. Negativity only breeds more negativity…so, today, I choose happiness! I'm always so inspired with how Katie puts her positive foot forward. Thank you Katie for making me see the Marvelousness in my Monday!

So, I've decided to share one of my favorite recipes as of late. I made this one up last week and have made it 4 times since. This should tell you how much my guys like it...before I could take a real picture, the container was empty and I was told that I needed to make more. 

This is more of a sweetened cereal than a true granola, in my opinion. You know the Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, well, this is kind of like that. I used Attune Foods cornflake cereal with some Bob's Red Mill oats and their new hazelnut meal/flour to make a super crunchy delicious cereal! This also works as a crunchy topping to baked goods or doughnuts (which is what I did with the picture above). So easy and so delicious!

Crunchy Hazelnut Granola Cereal
(makes about 5 cups)

3 cup corn flakes (I used Attune Foods)
1 1/2 cup quick oatmeal (I used Bob's Red Mill)
3/4 cup hazelnut meal/flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
9 TBSP egg whites
9 TBSP coconut sugar (I used NuNaturals)
3 TBSP melted coconut oil

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 pan with coconut oil.

Combine all of the ingredients in your prepared pan. Stir everything together smashing up the cereal as you thoroughly combine the ingredients. Bake for an hour to an hour and a half stirring every 15 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Happy Monday friends! I hope you're having a great one!


  1. YUM!!! Honey Bunches of Oats was one of my staples in college...I will have to give this a whirl!

  2. YUM! That might cheer me up too ;-) Sorry you had a rough start my friend. Big hugs.

  3. I think granola is the cure all! Just the aroma while it's baking alone is worth it! xo

  4. I love corn flakes and I just got pecan meal at YDFM. This is calling me. Actually.. this would make a good waffle topping. Yet another reason I need a waffle maker.

    Hope Tuesday is better. Rainy days and Mondays...

    yes for no more negative self talks! we are doing our best to be more happy and positive!

  6. Oh my stars... that looks incredible! I have the quinoa and chia flakes... I'll have to try this with those!

  7. those corn flakes... still my favorite. this sounds so very good.

    hope the rest of the week is better, my friend. sometimes you just want to crawl back under the covers... XXO

  8. This makes me wonder why granola has not been present in my life lately, yum!

  9. YUM!! this looks delish!! Will you make it for meeee ;-) cuz I am convinced you will make it better! I am glad you snapped out of the negative talk - I had a bit of that happen to me on Sunday night and felt refreshed on Monday by resetting my mind and mood! xoxo

  10. Well I'm not sure if tuesdays are much better by default, but I hope your week improves! xoxo

  11. Aw, I'm so glad you have your game back on!! Love this recipe and in fact did a hazelnut meal granola myself!!
