Homemade Gluten Free Cereal

Be warned its addictive!

What you will need:

  • 3 cups Desiccated Coconut (Read the product label to ensure there are no other chemical additives present)
  • 1/2 cup Almonds (nibbles, flaked, blanched – any kind you like)
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts (crushed) I usually crush them with a rolling-pin if the supermarket doesn’t have the crushed version.
  • 1/2 cup Hazelnuts (crushed)
  • 1/2 cup Golden Linseed
  • 1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 Sesame Seeds
  • Coconut Oil (1 teaspoon)
  • Pink Himalayan Rock Salt (pinch)
  • Honey (1 tablespoon, however, you can season to taste)

Method:

Oven Temp: 150 degrees Fan Oven

Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Next put the mixture on a flat baking tray. I tend to layer it up to about 1 inch in thickness.  Once the mixture is golden in colour remove it from the oven. Allow it to cool. Place in a storage container.

In a Pyrex jug add the honey and coconut oil. Place the jug in a saucepan of heated water and wait for the mixture to melt. Once melted pour on the cereal and mix it all together

Serving Suggestions:

Coconut milk works great if, like me, you prefer the dairy free option. A brand I am very fond of is “Kara”. You can also use rice, soya, hazelnut, quinoa or almond milk. Add some fresh fruit, dried fruit or natural yogurt.

Recipe Alternatives:

The recipe isn’t set in stone and if you are feeling creative you can mix up the ingredients by adding pecans, cashews, brazil nuts, a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg. I am a coconut fiend so I like to add roasted coconut flakes. Swap honey for agave syrup or molasses. Season it to your taste buds.

Tip:

You can have the mixture pre-made and store it in your press so when you are running low it is easy to throw another batch in the oven.

Eat Real, Great Feel!
