Hold it, I know what you’re thinking…but don’t click to another page so fast. I realize it must not look like the most appetizing sight, especially in the morning, but once you get past this cereal’s muddy color (courtesy of hemp protein powder), you’ll be fine. As per all my hot cereal recipes, it’s got superfoods included and packs a punch that’ll keep hunger away for hours. Try getting that from a bowl of the cold, soggy stuff. This frigid and prolonged winter is the best reason I can think of to give it a try. Here’s to a fortified day!
This can be divided into two smaller servings, but I eat the whole thing when I’m having a late breakfast
1/3 cup steel cut oats
2 Tbs. ground flax
2 Tbs. ground unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup dried mulberries
1 scoop hemp protein powder
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup water
1 Tbs. vanilla (to cut hemp’s bitterness)
8 drops Stevia or 1 Tbs. Agave or coconut palm nectar
Place all ingredients in a small saucepan except for the sweetener and let stand covered on the stove overnight. The next morning, heat on medium low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t stick to the pot’s bottom. When cereal is thickened, but not to the point of stiffness, turn heat off and let sit covered another five minutes. Stir in sweetener and serve.
