The Paleo Kids Cookbook is a great resource for anyone who wants their children to eat healthy, gluten-free food and actually like it. See the recipe (and a video tutorial) for the Paleo Cereal from the book

I think Jennifer Robins is one of my favorite bloggers since she just keeps putting out amazing cookbooks. If you recall, I raved about the New Yiddish Kitchen that she co-wrote with Simone Miller (hello amazing bagels and bagel dogs) and now she’s done it again with her new book, The Paleo Kids Cookbook.
I am a sucker for kids food. Sue me, but kids food is like the ultimate in comfort food for me. Chicken nuggets, fish sticks, quesadillas, mac and cheese, grilled cheese, corn dogs, pizza pockets, soft pretzels, funnel cakes, gummy worms, waffles, pancakes, french toast sticks, oh man, I could go on and on and eat this stuff every day if I could. But guess what. Every single one of these is in this book in an allergy-friendly, much healthier than the normal way. So yeah, this book is a fave of ours already.
If you’ve been struggling to find food that your kids will like, you should check The Paleo Kids Cookbook out. Not only are the recipes fun to eat but they are also great for making things that look what like other kids eat at school, birthday parties, etc, so your kid doesn’t have to be the only one not eating the animal crackers. And every recipe is grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, shellfish-free, and soy-free so most of the major allergies are avoided! This makes preparing food for my kids’ schools a breeze.
Plus many of these are fun to actually cook WITH your kids. My 4 year old and I even made the Pale-O’s Cereal the other day and created this video tutorial for you. (Recipe used and reprinted with permission from the author, Jennifer Robins).
The verdict on this paleo cereal from both my sons? “Yummy!”
Paleo Cereal Recipe
Here the recipe is written out for when you want some delicious cereal.Print
When your kids have to be gluten-free (Celiac maybe?) and you want them to stay away from those sugary things posing as breakfast cereals, what do you do? Try this cereal!
- 1/3 cup (32 g) coconut flour
- 1/3 cup (42 g) cassava flour
- 1/3 cup (80 g) coconut oil
- 1 tsp 100% vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp (45 ml) 100% maple syrup
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) coconut milk
- Pinch sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C).
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl. The dough should be thick, but able to be piped.
- Once desired consistency is reached, spoon mixture into a sandwich bag or piping bag.
- Cut a small tip off the corner of the sandwich bag.
- On a parchment-lined baking sheet, pipe small dollops of dough, about 1/3 inch (7 mm) in diameter (or to your size preference).
- Bake for around 10 to 12 minutes, depending on your oven, then remove and allow to cool. The nuggets should be nicely browned and will crisp more upon cooling, after about 5 minutes or so. Many kids love these as a fun finger food versus a cereal to submerge in milk, but they are delicious however you decide to serve them!
FOR LITTLE HANDS: Allow your child to help mix the dough ingredients and help pipe the cereal if your helper is a little older.
