Hot Almond Cereal Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Hot Almond Cereal which belongs to the Breads recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 cup (170 g) flaxseeds
  2. 1 cup (125 g) ground almonds
  3. cup (50 g) oat bran
  4. 1 cups (125 g) wheat bran
  5. 1 cup (130 g) vanilla whey protein powder

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 300F (150C, or gas mark 2).

Grind your flaxseeds in a food processor with the S-blade in place.

Flaxseeds take a while to grind up, so you may have to run the processor for several minutes.

(You can buy flaxseed meal if you prefer, but flaxseed oil spoils pretty quickly after the seeds are ground, so I much prefer to grind my own.

) While the food processor is running, lightly toast your ground almonds by putting them in a shallow baking pan in the oven for 5 minutes or so.

When the flaxseeds are ground and the almonds are toasted, combine them with the oat bran, wheat bran, and protein powder and store in an airtight container.

To make a bowl of cereal, put cup (60 g) of the mixture in a bowl and add cup (180 ml) of boiling water and a pinch of salt.

Stir and let your cereal sit for a few minutes before eating.

Each with about 16 grams of carbohydrates and 9 grams of fiber, for a total of 7 grams of usable carbs and 11 grams of protein. Try this with a little Splenda and cream or even a little cinnamon. Personally, I like to add just a drop or two of blackstrap molasses to give it a brownsugar flavor without many extra carbs.
