My Yummy Warm Cereal

As a child I looked forward to my breakfast bowl of warm, comforting cream of wheat! BUT, that all changed when I was a teenager diagnosed with several food allergies, including wheat and dairy. I am no longer allergic to these foods, but I have found an increase in my energy, and overall health when I eat higher alkaline foods. This recipe is extremely heathy, delicious, and super easy to make in just a few minutes!

This recipe is low carb, keto friendly, gluten and dairy free!
Serves 1


Ingredients

  • Chia Seeds: 2 Tbsp
  • Flax Seed ground: 2 Tbsp
  • Coconut Flakes (unsweetened): 2 Tbsp
  • Almond Butter or nut butter of choice (no sugar added): 1 Tbsp
  • Salt: 1/4 tsp
  • Xylitol sweetener: 1 tsp
  • Water: 1/4 cup
  • Coconut milk (So Delicious or Silk brand unsweetened): 1/4 – 1/2 cup

*I recommend not buying flaxseed pre-ground as it turns into a trans fat when exposed to oxygen in its ground state. You can grind the seeds in a coffee grinder or Blendtec blender. Both work well.
