Here’s my latest wheat-free, no-added-sugar recipe for homemade cereal. It’s delicious, and you can easily tweak the recipe to change flavors. Enjoy.
1/2 cup unsweetened rice puffs (found in bags with cereal at health food stores)
1/2 cup flaked quinoa (not whole, but flaked, found with oatmeal at health food stores)
1 cup raw cashews, crushed
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1/2 cup of your favorite, unsweetened dried fruit. I use chopped dates.
4 tablespoons organic coconut oil
Favorite sweetener to taste. I sprinkled it with Stevia in the Raw.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together in a big bowl. Toss to coat with the coconut oil.
Transfer to sheet pan and spread evenly. I line my pan with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
Place in preheated oven for 18-24 minutes, toss once mid-way through cooking. Take them out when it appears golden and lightly toasted.
Allow to cool, enjoy with unsweetened vanilla almond milk or vanilla <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/metabolic-drive-low-carb"target=“new”>Metabolic Drive.
TIP: Store in fridge. The thin layer of coconut oil will re-solidify, forming clusters of cereal very much like granola. Great texture.
Makes 2-4 servings, depending on how hungry you are.
This is also great for adding to Greek yogurt.
Replace cashews and pepitas with any nut/seed combo you like.
Replace the dates with any dried fruit you like, just get them unsweetened.
Replace quinoa flakes with oatmeal.
