It’s hard to believe it’s thanksgiving already! The start of the holiday season. The holiday season for me starts on my birthday (Nov. 7) and then thanksgiving and then Christmas and then new years! And Christmas is just around the corner…….
Anyways, this breakfast recipe is more of a inspiration than a recipe. It’s what I do whenever I cant think of anything to make for breakfast and is great because you could make it with whatever you happen to have in the pantry. It’s basically a blend of cereal, nuts, seeds, and some kind of fruit and it tastes amazing! Here are some ideas of stuff to put in your cereal blend:
Cereal: shredded wheat (not frosted), nutty nuggets, cheerios, or some kind of plain cereal.
Here are the cereals I was talking about (not the cheerios, I’m pretty sure you heard of that)
Nuts: walnuts, peanuts, almonds, cashews, coconut (I’m pretty sure that’s not a nut, but where else would I put it?)
Seeds: sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds
Fruit: bananas, strawberries, blueberries, raisins, dried cranberries
Sweetener: maple syrup, agave nectar, honey, or good old fashioned sugar!
Toppings: yogurt, milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk
Chop your preferred nuts so there ate still big chunks. Heat the oil in a small frying pan and add the nuts and seeds (not chia seeds) and cook until starting to brown.
Stir in any cereal, dried fruit, sweetener, and chia seeds.
Put in a bowl and add any other fruit and toppings along with other toppings as you wish and enjoy!
I topped mine with raisins, more coconut, and greek yogurt (doesn’t it look like whipped cream?)
