Gluten-Free/Dairy-Free Brown Sugar Corn Flakes Cereal Recipe



This version turned out to be a crispy corn flake cereal with oat clusters and a hint of brown sugar sweetness. It goes perfectly with milk (almond milk for me) or as a topping on yogurt.

  • 3 cups corn flakes (make sure they are gluten-free if you need them to be)
  • 1 cup quick oats (I used Bob's)
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal mixed with 6 tablespoons hot water (sit aside for 5 minutes)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 10 drops NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia


Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Mix everything together is put on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at for 45 minutes to an hour stirring every 15 minutes. It will crisp up more once it cools.
