Coconut-Sugar Cinnamon Puffs Mariel Lewis April 3, 2013 American, Breakfast, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Paleo, Soy Free, Treats, Vegetarian 12 Comments Cereal. Americans’ breakfast of choice. It’s crunchy, sweet, accessible, fun to eat, and incredibly tasty. There’s a flavor for everyone out there; you can find fruit tasting cereal, Oreo cereal, plain cereal, diet cereal, gluten-free cereal, you name it. I used to have a bowl of cereal every morning in high school and college; this was before I turned Paleo, of course. It was for sure my go-to breakfast item and one of the things I looked forward to the most in the AM. I loved the Vanilla-Almond Special K cereal with vanilla almond milk, or Quaker’s Granola Oats-Honey-Raisins with vanilla yogurt. Ahhh, those were the days. Not! I don’t miss the bloated belly or the sugar-lows at all. If you’ve been reading my posts lately, you’ve probably noticed I’ve been posting lots of breakfast recipes. I might as well keep them coming, right? This recipe is for all of those of you who like crunchy, sweet and delicious bowl-fulls in the AM. There’s just something great about having your own personal bowl of goodness to help you wake up and start the day right. 😉 Let me introduce you to my very own Coconut-Sugar Cinnamon Puffs!

I was just wondering if there is a substitute for the coconut palm sugar? Thank you so much. You are amazing at what you do. Mariel Lewis April 3, 2013 Hi Lydia! Thanks for your sweet comment! I would recommend subbing the coconut palm sugar with stevia. Or…if you want a bit more of a richer cereal, sub the coconut palm sugar with cocoa powder. Kim April 5, 2013 Hi there, i just wanted to say as a cereal addict, I’d have to thank you for this s much! But the thing is I live in Vietnam and we don’t have any access for coconut flour, except making it by yourself, which seems rather frustrating. So can I substitute it with something else? Or maybe omitting it? Mariel Lewis April 5, 2013 Hi Kim! I am sorry you can’t fin coconut flour over there! I honestly haven’t tried this recipe without coconut flour, therefore I am not sure if subbing the coconut flour with another flour will work. If you do end up subbing it, let me know what you used and how it turned out! Kim April 6, 2013 Hm, so would you mind explain to me the use of coconut flour in this recipe, and others? Since I see a lot of recipes with it that i wanted to try, but couldn’t find it, so I thought of subbing it with something else. In order to do that, I’d need to know how it works, first. Thanks.xD Lydia April 7, 2013 Hello again, i might sound silly but i can’t find coconut flour anywhere. So i bought shredded coconut and blended it till it became a flour base. Is that okay? Mariel Lewis November 2, 2013 Yeah, that should work. Try looking for it online next time! Lauren April 22, 2013 Wow this looks so cool! I get so bored with breakfasts sometimes because I feel its always the saaaaame sttuuuuff. Plus I am wheat intolerant, cows milk intolerant ….I get bloating with almost everything I eat. I avoid white sugar as much as I can AND I like to keep things healthy and wholefood so as not to get any lows. PHEW! So this recipe looks great…thanks you for sharing this , I can’t wait to try it 😀 Mariel Lewis April 22, 2013 Thanks for your comment Lauren! Let me know what you think of these when you try ’em. Jennifer May 2, 2013 Made these with the little ones and they were a hit. We doubled the recipe, but with the 6 of us they went fast! Crowd pleaser here, for sure. Used as a special treat/snack or a few with a smoothie for breakfast. Mariel Lewis November 2, 2013 Haha, fun!!! I am so glad the entire family got to enjoy these! Thanks for sharing. Tina Whitcomb November 22, 2013 I am allergic to nuts. Is there anyway I could use coconut flour only or a combination of coconut flour and tapioca flour/starch ? If so, what amounts and how should I change the liquid ingredients? Thank you.
