Homemade pumpkin spice cereal that is paleo & vegan? Yes, & it is actually super easy, the hardest part is rolling the dough into little balls! This cereal has the perfect amount of slightly naturally sweetened pumpkin spice flavour in every crunchy bite!




  1. Pre-heat the oven to 325 F & line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl mix all the ingredients together well.
  3. Let the dough sit for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Roll the dough into little balls (I used about 1/2 tsp for each one) & place on a parchment paper lined baking tray. *
  5. I recommend putting on a good show or podcast while you roll because it can be a bit tedious (but worth it)!
  6. Once they are all rolled you’re going to bake them for 25-35 minutes, spread out evenly & not touching each other. Baking times will slightly vary depending on your oven & the size of your cereal balls. Mine took around 30.
  7. After baking for 15 minutes you are going to roll the balls around every 5-7 minutes to ensure even cooking.
  8. Once cooked you want to let them cool completely on the pan as this will ensure they get extra crunchy.
  9. Serve with your milk of choice (I used cashew milk) & enjoy!**


*I recommend trying to keep them all the same size & relatively small. As you will need a longer baking time for the larger balls or they won’t get as crunchy.

**This recipe makes 1-3 servings depending on the size of your balls & how hungry you are. You can definitely double the recipe & store them in a mason jar for up to a week. However, since they didn’t last more than a day in my home I cannot say how this will affect the texture over time & in my experience have been best when eaten the same day. Let me know if you do store them & how it worked out for you!
