Frosted “Corn” Flakes Cereal
- 1 lb unsweetened coconut flakes (8-9 cups)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2-1 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp Pure Kal Stevia or sweetener of choice (to taste)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line 2-3 jelly roll pans (cookie sheets with sides) with parchment paper. Using 3 cookie sheets will speed up the dehydrating process (see Fast Method below).
In a large bowl, add water along with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and Stevia. Whisk until dry ingredients are dissolved. Add coconut flakes and stir well until flakes are evenly coated. Be sure flakes are not sticking together. Taste for sweetness. Add more sweetener if desired.
FAST METHOD: Divide flakes between 3 cookie sheets and spread out evenly. Bake for 15 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and carefully stir. Return to oven for another 5-10 minutes or until the flakes are slightly golden brown but NOT BURNED!
OVER NIGHT METHOD: Divide flakes between 2 cookie sheets and spread out evenly. Bake for 15 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and carefully stir. Return to oven for another 5 minutes. Turn off oven and leave for anywhere from 2-4 hours or overnight.
