MICROWAVE DRY CEREAL (GF)

MICROWAVE DRY CEREAL
Here is an idea for those who were used to eating cereal every morning for breakfast in their higher carb days of yesteryear. Great served atop yogurt - good for adding fiber and Omega-3's to the diet, not to mention keeping Candida at bay with the yogurt.

2 tbsp sliced almonds
2 tbsp ground almonds
2 tbsp organic golden flax meal
1 tbsp vanilla whey protein
Pinch No Salt
Pepper sprinkle
2 tbsp water

In small cereal bowl, combine sliced almonds, ground almonds, flax meal, vanilla whey protein, salt and pepper. Stir in water. Spray dinner plate with nonstick cooking spray. Spread mixture out in large circle on plate. Microwave 3 minutes on high (maybe this could go longer for a crispier result? I have not tested it more than twice – both times at 3 min.). Break into irregular, small pieces. Serve with low carb milk (See Carolyn’s low-carb milk) or alternative and Splenda Granular to taste. Add a few frozen blueberries, if desired, or chopped pecans or whatever. It’s an easy recipe to play with.

Yield: 1 serving, 214.0 calories; 12.0 g protein; 16.6 g fat, 2.1 g carbs

Helpful Hint: CarolynF (from lowcarbfriends' forum) quadrupled the recipe and spread out on greased wax paper on a 9 x 13-inch pan. Bake at 300 deg. F. for about 10 minutes. Break it up and bake until dry and crispy. Carolyn tells me her husband loves this recipe of mine!
