Fruit & Seed Protein Cereal

I am not the biggest fan of cereals.  However, I do love when cereals have tons of healthy ingredients mixed together, almost like a trail mix.  When I came across this recipe for a cereal with tons of superfoods, I knew I needed to give it a try.

Fruit Seed Protein Cereal 2

The base of this cereal is oats, so I guess technically it is still more similar to oatmeal than “cereal”, but since I normally prepare my oatmeal the night before so it is soft in the morning and eat that warmed in the microwave, this cereal does not soak oats over night so the oats have a good bite to them more typical of a cereal and they are eaten cold with almond milk poured freshly on top of the oats, seeds, and fruit before enjoying!

This recipe was adapted from here:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup GF rolled oats
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder
  • 2 tbsp buckwheat groats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp dried cherries (or other dried fruit)
  • 1 tsp shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 sliced banana

Directions:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.  
  2. Pour almond milk over dry ingredients and top with sliced banana.

This breakfast is super easy to prepare (especially if you mix together the dry ingredients the night before), filling, and filled with healthy nutrients!  This will be a perfect breakfast very soon on hot summer mornings!

Based on using Trader Joe’s GF Rolled Oats, Sunwarrior Raw Blend Vanilla Protein Powder, and original Silk PureAlmond Milk, this recipe yields approximately 410 calories and 17.5g protein.
