People often ask me where my sense of inspiration comes from when creating recipes. That’s a great question and one that I don’t have a straightforward answer for. My inspiration comes from the food that I grew up on (good ole family favorites), TV commercials, magazine covers that I spy while standing in the checkout lane, browsing grocery store aisles, ingredients I have on hand… the list goes on.

And believe or not, my own site inspires me. While I am creating one recipe, I start getting ideas for the next. While I am shaping a raw bread loaf, I wonder if the same batter would work for a cracker. While rolling out crackers, I wonder if I could make a cereal from it. In the past couple of years, a lot of my inspiration has been driven by our household dietary needs. Bodies change, therefore, the foods we eat change…and my recipes often reflect that.

Speaking of inspiration, this recipe came from one of my cracker recipes. I absolutely adore the whole cereal-making process. There is something so gratifying when it comes to scoring and snapping apart those itty-bitty tiny cereal squares. This simple cereal requires only four ingredients, so let’s quickly chat about them.

Four Ingredients Only!

Fresh Pears

Finely Shredded Coconut

Maple Syrup & Sea Salt

These cereal squares can be enjoyed in several ways. Experience them in manner that tickles your taste buds and comforts your belly. I added banana slices, as well as frozen blueberries, which turned my milk a lavender color.

raw vegan gluten-free coconut Crunch cerealIngredients:

Yields 144 cereal squares (I counted!)


  1. Process the pears, sweetener (if used), and salt in a food processor, fitted with the “S” blade, until creamy.
    • To avoid brown flakes in your cereal, I recommend removing the skins from the pears.
  2. Add shredded coconut and process until mixed.
  3. Line the dehydrator tray with a non-stick teflex sheet.
  4. Spread the batter into a large square.
    • Make sure that you spread it evenly, so it dries evenly.
    • Score the cereal squares into desired shapes and sizes (think bite-sized).  You can use a pizza cutter or a long metal ruler to create the score marks.
    • My favorite tool for this job is my pastry cutter, which you can view (here).
  5. Dehydrate at 145 degrees (F) for 1 hour, then reduce to 115 degrees (F) and continue drying for up to 24 hours until dry and crispy.
    • Why start at 145 degrees and will the cereal still be raw? To answer your questions, click (here).
  6. Snap apart and let cool before storing in an airtight bag/container.
  7. The cereal should last several weeks in the pantry and in the freezer for 2-3 months.  If the squares start to soften due to humidity, throw them back in the dehydrator to crisp up.
