How to Make Keto Cereal with a Surprising Twist – Salted Caramel Pork Rinds Recipe Included!

Are you on the keto diet and miss having cereal for breakfast? Or are you simply looking for a low-carb cereal substitute that can satisfy your cravings? Look no further than this surprising twist on a classic favorite – salted caramel pork rinds cereal!


Many breakfast cereals are high in carbs and low in fiber, making them unsuitable for those on the keto diet. With the keto diet being a low-carb and high-fat diet, it’s important to find alternatives that align with this diet plan. One such alternative is pork rinds, which are a crispy and savory snack made of fried pig skin. Surprisingly, they make an excellent substitute for cereal when paired with the right ingredients.

The Recipe

To make this low-carb cereal, you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of light and puffy pork rinds
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup of erythritol
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon

For the salted caramel topping:

  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 1/4 cup of erythritol
  • 1/4 tsp of sea salt

To prepare the cereal:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.

  3. Add in the coconut milk, heavy whipping cream, and erythritol. Stir to combine.

  4. Add in the pork rinds and cinnamon. Mix well until the pork rinds are coated.

  5. Pour the mixture into a baking dish and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the pork rinds are slightly crunchy.

  6. While the pork rinds are baking, prepare the salted caramel topping by melting the butter in a separate saucepan.

  7. Add in the erythritol and sea salt. Cook until the erythritol has dissolved and the mixture has thickened.

  8. Once the pork rinds are done, drizzle the salted caramel topping over them and serve with unsweetened low-carb milk alternatives.

To make the cereal crunchy, choose light and puffy pork rinds rather than hard and very crunchy ones. The recipe is simple and easy to make, and can be prepared in bulk and stored in the fridge for up to three days.
