I recently read on, "I Breathe Im Hungry" about a Cinnamon cereal with hemp seeds. Of course, not finding hemp seed anywhere I decided to go for Chia seeds. why? because they are oh-so filling, and good for you as well. Look at that, a "win win" in the nutrition world.
The combination of flax seeds and chia seeds will help keep you fuller longer, especially longer than standard refined grain cereal. But feel free to add to your cereal things like: bananas, walnuts, blueberries, strawberries, or eating the cereal on top of a bed of non-fat greek yogurt with coconut flakes! UM, yum!
I also changed a whole lot of the recipe but here is the original and you should definitely check out her blog, she has some great recipes on there!
1/2 c. Flax-Meal, golden
1/2 c. Chia seed
1c. Sweetener of choice, (honey, splenda, agave, brown sugar etc.)
2 tbs. dark ground Cinnamon
1 tbs. vanilla protein powder (optional!)
2 tbs. Coconut oil, melted
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
3/4 c. + 2 tbs. hot Water
Yields 4 1/4c. servings
Directions: Mound your dough into a great big ball, it will be the consistency of sticky read (before its floured up). Begin to spread the dough out until its super thin using a rolling pin. Onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 325 for 15 minutes, then drop it down to 300 degrees F, pull out the sheet and cut into small squares using a pizza cutter (or knife, but pizza cutter is so much easier) cook for an additional 30 minutes.
Put it back into the oven exactly like this, don't separate the pieces. When the 30 minutes are up, pull it out and separate the pieces. Drop the pieces to 200 degrees F for 1 hour. They will be completely dried out at this point. Enjoy with milk of your choice!
