I don't normally want cold cereal, but lately I just had a hankering for some good cold cereal. I have another recipe for cold cereal that I like but I didn't have time to make all the ingredients for that one or have all on hand. Decided to try this and see how it turned out. It turned out wonderful. It's very crunchy, like cold cereal should be. It's a good base recipe to which you can add any other things you like, such as nuts, seeds, coconut flakes, dried cranberries, or whatever.
I normally use erythritol and stevia to sweeten most things, but I wanted to use a flavored syrup for this. If you don't want to use sucralose, You can try a flavored stevia extract. Erythritol sometimes changes the texture of baked things, and makes them softer instead of crunchy, so I didn't use any granulated erythritol, however I used a liquid stevia extract (GV brand from Walmart) which has some erythritol added. But the liquid seems to be okay, and the combo of that and the Torani syrup was good. You could use whatever flavor you prefer. I wanted vanilla but only had the Smore's flavor and that turned out really good.

(I put the brands I use and that is how the nutrition is derived)
1/2 cup almond flour - Honeyville
1/2 cup golden flaxseed meal
1/3 cup whey protein isolate, Isopure -- (1 scoop)
1 tablespoon oat fiber (Trim Healthy Mama, Gluten Free)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup Smore's flavored sugar free Torani syrup (or vanilla or any flavor you like)
1/4 teaspoon stevia extract, GV
1 large egg
Preheat oven to 250F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray.
In food processor, add almond flour, flaxmeal, whey protein, oat fiber and cinnamon, and pulse a few times to blend it all together.
Add vanilla sugar free Torani syrup (or any flavor), stevia extract, and egg.
Process until smooth. It will be thick and sticky. Pour out onto parchment paper and cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with non stick spray and with hands just smooth out to corners until evenly flattened and thin as you can get it.
Bake 30 minutes. Check to see how done it is, and bake 10 minutes longer at a time, keeping watch on it, until completely dry in the middle and lightly browned but make sure not to burn. Takes about an hour altogether.
Let cook completely on wire rack. When cooled break into pieces. Store in ziplock bag in refrigerator.
