My morning cereal
« on: April 17, 2013, 12:15:16 PM »
I love having cereal for breakfast, but couldn't find a good alternative.  So I decided to make one up.

I went to Sprouts and hopped on over to the bulk food section and purchased:

Chia Seeds
Pumpkin Seeds
Slivered Almonds
Ground Flax    ( now I buy this at Costco )
Hemp    ( also buy this at Costco )

I also purchased Stevia to sweeten things up.

I had to do a little experimenting, but I found a hot cereal combo using these ingredients that I really like:


2 tbsp  Chia
2 tbsp  Pumpkin
2 tbsp  slivered almonds
2 tbsp  ground flax
2 tbsp  hemp
2 tbsp  ground flax
1 tsp  cinnamon
about a cup of vanilla soy milk    ( I like soy milk, but you can do whatever you want here )

I then nuke that for a minute, stir, add stevia to sweeten, and cut up strawberries or blueberries on top.

Yum!!!!

Sounds yummy! I'm going to try your recipe soon--getting a bit tired of eggs every morning.

I have been doing something like this too as I really missed cereal for breakfast.  I use most of the same ingredients however Almond Milk and Blueberry flavored ground flax seed from Trader Joes.  That adds some nice flavor.

Yummy.  Never heard of blueberry flavored flax.

Not a cereal, but a breakfast custard recipe that I found at Dana Carpender's site and it is awesome.
