Almond Flour Flat Muffins

i wasn’t a big milk and cereal eater, pre-gluten/grain-free days, but i do like cereal. and sometimes i just need an easy go-to for breakfast. this is a family favorite. we keep it stored in the refrigerator and it stays so crunchy. it’s not pretty to look at, really, but oh my gracious. it is absolutely delicious with milk poured over. it’s good eaten plain or over coconut yogurt or homemade coconut ice cream.
