Paleo Cereal???

Hello, everyone!

It's been awhile since I've done a purely texted based post and I'm sorry for that. I was trying to do one at least once a week but I kind of fell out of my schedule. Thankfully things are starting to get back on track now so I'm here today with a new recipe for you all!

For me one of the hardest parts about being on the Paleo diet is giving up cereal... It's such a quick easy meal to start the day with. Almost zero prep time. Perfect for mornings when you've got to be at work early and you don't have time to fool with a skillet.
Lately I've been taking Siggi's low carb, high protein yoghurt to work for breakfast but it just kind of felt a little like cheating so I started to seek out alternatives. I like egg muffins and sausage balls but both of those are generally served hot and for summer time they just didn't sound very appealing.
I decided to find a Paleo alternative to cereal that I could throw together.
I did a little digging and found some good ideas then hit up our local Whole Grocer. They have a HUGE bulk section where you can get any nut or dried fruit that you can imagine. I picked up a few things that looked yummy, combined them, and topped them with milk. The result was very tasty.

One of my favorite things about this Paleo alternative recipe is that it is still true to the core values of Paleo. It's basic and unprocessed.

This "cereal" is so customizable that I kind of feel silly even telling you a specific recipe but I'll tell you what I used and you can go from there!

These are the ingredients I used:
1/2 cup organic dried blueberries
3/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup organic coconut flakes
1/2 cup organic raisins
1/2 cup organic dried cranberries
3/4 cup almond flakes


I combined everything in a big mixing bowl.
I added a little of each ingredient until I got the proportions I wanted.


Pour in a bowl and top with milk!
I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk and it was delicious.
I actually poured waaaay more than necessary at first because I'm used to normal cereal that absorbs the milk. With this Paleo cereal you only need a little bit because the fruit and nuts don't soak up the milk at all.


Total cost:  $18.15
Cost per serving:  $1.30
I wanted to share the price of this recipe because it is a little more expensive than normal cereal on the front end but the batch I made was so huge that the cost per serving wasn't that much higher.


I hope you all enjoyed this post! Please let me know if you try this out at home. I would love to know what you put in your "cereal"!
