Homemade Cereal


My posts have been few and far between so I plan on writing a lot more! I had a maple cinnamon granola recipe on deck last night but my oven wasn't working so I have to call my landlord today...which is weird because in PA I own my condo and I have a brand new oven. I'm not used to relying on someone else! So I had a plan to photograph the granola this morning and post the recipe but I'll have to do that later today! I made this cereal though and it was so delish so good things really do come to those who wait :)

I'm officially in NYC for a whole week and I'm loving it. My yoga teacher training classes are kicking my butt but I get a break at the beginning of every week so I'm workig on writing, studying, working out and making my meditation corner. I'm back to running!!! I can officially run without pain in my leg and the East End trail run is full of beautiful nyc scenery that I will be taking pics of tonight and posting. It's another dreary day in the Big Apple this morning which calls for breakfast in bed!
This cereal is just a slight deviation from overnight oats but you end up with a completely different consistency. This ends up being a chewy cereal, a lot like how your cereal tastes when you soak it in milk for a while. I haven't bought regular cereal in so long. I grew up eating cheerios and bran flakes and all that fun stuff but not all cereal is made with whole ingredients and of course you have to worry about GMOs


So, here is my fun fantastic cereal recipe. Make this the night before consuming...or at least a few hours before.

1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of non dairy milk
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
2 tbsp of almond butter
1 oz of goji berries
1 tsp of cinnamon
2 chopped dates
Blueberries

Combine the oats, milk and protein powder and stir well. Add the goji berries, cinnamon, walnuts and almond butter and mix into the oats. Lastly, stir in the dates and top with blueberries. You will end up with a chewy, sweet delicious treat for breakfast.
Oh my new obsession: almond butter. Get it at Trader Joe's!
