{Cream of Almond} Breakfast Cereal

Atty just ate two whole batches of this warm cereal this morning. He LOVES it! So excited to make a new recipe that he likes so that he can have something new to eat in the morning.

  • 1/2 cup almond meal/flour

  • 2 tablespoons flax meal (count the carbs)

  • 1/2 tsp sugar free vanilla extract

  • 15 drops stevia

  • 2 cups water

  • Add cinnamon to taste if desired

Combine all ingredients in pan and stir (I put 1 1/2 cups water in at first and then the other 1/2 after it has been simmering and thickened up a bit), cook over medium high heat until bubbling hard then turn down to a medium heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Don't let it get too thick, it will thicken as it cools! To me it seems to have the consistency and look of Cream of Wheat. I haven't really been counting the carbs in flax meal for Atty for quite a while now, it just doesn't seem to matter for him. But every child is different. Because I don't count the carbs in the cereal I usually top this with 1/3 of a sliced banana. He really likes that. I tasted it myself of course and it really is pretty yummy!

Yay! That's awesome! Makes momma's job that much easier (not that you have it easy in the first place) to have more meal options for him. Way to go!
