I’m eating cereal again!!! Most grain cereals leave me feeling unsatisfied and hungry again midmorning so I often use eggs or other protein sources for breakfast. But a friend named Karen from Nova Scotia introduced me to this raw cereal, and I love it! I have adapted it slightly by using heated goat milk to soak it for the 5 – 7 minutes, and I put a full scoop of raw hemp seeds on top to increase the protein content. Yummy!
Instant Breakfast With Attitude
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
¼ cup raw pumpkin seeds
¾ cup dried cranberries (unsulphured and sweetened with juice not sugar)
½ cup raisins (organic)
½ cup chia seeds
½ cup raw walnuts
½ cup sesame seeds
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger powder
Pulse ingredients in a food processor until desired consistency. Store in a glass jar in refrigerator.
Heat ½ cup milk of choice (I use goat milk) or water and pour over 4 tbsp. of the mix. Let sit for 7 8 minutes.
Add ¼ cup of raw hemp seeds for extra protein.
Add other options if desired: chunks of fruit, or nuts.
This cereal is great for camping!
