Paleo Cereal!

12 Sep

I don’t even know how I’m having time to write this blog post right now….I am actually waiting for my water to boil so I can start dinner. The first week of school has been stressful. I don’t wanna talk about it.

I accidently got sidetracked Pinterest-ing pumpkin recipes and forgot to start dinner until my husband started complaining he was hungry. Woops.

I am so ready for this pumpkin onslaught. I was going to wait until October but I just couldn’t resist. I have a couple of recipes planned for this weekend. This is what I look forward to. Last night I made pancakes for breakfast (for today and tomorrow) and they were glorious.

Practical Paleo is the best book ever. I tried to add it to this box that I was packing for when we move, and I have already packed it and unpacked it about 3 times. I use it way too often.

How does everyone feel about football? It’s on ALL THE TIME. Annoying.

Anyways, cereal. It’s really good. I could easily eat a whole box. Cheerios, Kashi, Corn Pops, Frosted Flakes, Raisin Brain. I mean it’s so good. Buuuuuut it’s nutritionally crap. It’s sugar in a bowl. And expensive. So I’ve cut it out of my life. I still miss it! I’ve been dancing around the idea of making a Paleo cereal for awhile. I finally did. So good. I was worried about not feeling full from it for long, but that wasn’t an issue. It filled me up all the way until lunch. And it was easy and fast. Here’s my version:

Paleo Almond Cereal

2 tablespoons almonds

2 tablespoons roasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

              (I roasted mine a day earlier in the oven with honey and cinnamon.)

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1/3 cup coconut milk

1/3 cup water

1/2 banana**

handful of blueberries**

**You could add whatever fruit you wanted, this is what I had on hand.

Put the coconut milk in a bowl and add your chia seeds. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes and thicken (I was curling my hair while this was happening).

Take 1 tablespoon of the pumpkin seeds and your almonds and pulse in the food processor a few times. Decide how “chunky” you want it. I didn’t grind mine to a pulp but it resembled granola.

Place the mixture and the rest of the seeds into the bowl with the chia seeds and milk once it’s thickened and add your fruit on top. Add water to your desired consistency. You could also add a sprinkle or cinnamon or honey to the top for sweetness.

Yum!

What cereal do you miss the most? Or do you eat it still?

Are you excited or already sick of pumpkin??
