Healthy and Yummy Breakfast Cereal

In my initial intake, I always ask what are you eating for breakfast and how soon after you get up do you eat? The answers vary widely, but often include either nothing, coffee, or cereal. [tweetthis]Breakfast is very important, so important, it should never be skipped.[/tweetthis] It’s also essential to eat within 1 hour of getting up.

So here is a great, yummy, and healthy breakfast cereal that you can make on the weekends and enjoy all week long. You can eat it dry or with milk/yogurt. I like mine with almond milk.

I posted this recipe a while back, but like all recipes, I alter them to suit my tastes. Here is my new and improved breakfast kasha cereal recipe along with a video so you can see how easy it is to prepare. Enjoy!

Kasha Cereal

It may sound like a grain, but it’s actually a fruit seed of the buckwheat plant. It’s related to rhubarb and sorrel making it a great substitute for grains, especially for those avoiding gluten. The soft white seed has a mild flavor but when toasted, the flavor becomes much more distinct and intense. I make a batch of this each week and keep in the fridge for a quick and easy breakfast served with almond milk or yogurt, or eaten dry as a snack.

 

Ingredients

  • 4 cups raw buckwheat groats
  • 3/4 cup raw almond butter
  • 3/4 cup chopped raw walnuts
  • 3/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 3 tablespoons REAL maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup dried currants
  • ¾ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  • Spread raw buckwheat groats across a large cookie sheet and bake for about 40 minutes, shuffling them around about halfway through, until slightly golden
  • While the groats are cooking, mix all other ingredients in a large glass bowl
  • When the groats are done, immediately mix them in the bowl with the other ingredients. It may take a bit of effort to get the groats thoroughly coated.
  • Let cool to room temperature
  • Place in a glass jar or large glass container and store in the fridge.

You can use any nuts, dried fruit and nut butter that you prefer. Start with my version and then make variations according to your taste.
