Paleo Breakfast Cereal [Gluten free, Grain free, Dairy free]

Leave the eggs aside this morning and make yourself some paleo cereal that’s well worth the effort

I’ve been thinking about a breakfast cereal recipe for some time and it’s been sitting in my ‘drafts’ section for ages. I considered making a version of my sunflower and tahini crackers but adapted and tweaked to be more ‘breakfasty’ (it’s in the urban dictionary so I’m going with it!). 

Then I made some almond milk yesterday and had the leftover pulp just aching to be used. This is when inspiration struck and I got into my kitchen and started mixing things together. The result? A deliciously chewy cereal, flavoured with a hint of cinnamon and vanilla, and with a dash of almond milk, well, it’s pure joy! 

This is an indulgent breakfast treat and I would not recommend you make a huge batch and store it for ages – remember there are no preservatives in this so it won’t keep for more than a day or two. Also, it isn’t the cheapest of breakfasts either but once in a while… don’t mind if I do, Sir! 😉
