Mom’s always ask me what can I serve my kids for breakfast that they will eat and that will fill them up until lunch time?

Here is a recipe I have just created that I think will fit the bill. Original Recipe by Shirley Plant

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten- free oats
  • ¼ cup walnut pieces
  • ¼ cup raw pepitas
  • ¼ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries ( I use the juice sweetened ones)
  • 2 tbsp ground chia or flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp hempseed
  • 1 cup puffed rice cereal
  • 1 cup nut butter or unsweetened peanut butter
  • ¼- 1/3 cup honey


Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. If your nut butter is dry from being in the fridge you might have to add a little bit of melted coconut oil, or water to make sure mixture binds. Or you can leave your nut butter out for an hour before making this. I used freshly made peanut butter so it was quite runny. Form into patties and store in a glass container. At breakfasttime put in a large bowl and pour allowable milk over top and enjoy.
  2. The combination of nuts, hempseed and flax will fill them up and keep them going. The added raisins, cranberries and honey will give it a little sweetness without over powering it and sending their blood sugar soaring as most cereals do.
