Healthy warming breakfast! Gluten free, high fiber, low carb, vegan, high protein

I have been eating this awesome breakfast “cereal” type of bowl for the past year and love it when the weather turns cold outside.  It is so warming and good for me!  Sometimes I have this several times a day during the cold winter months in Chicago.

This dish is very good for you, containing heart-healthy Omega 3’s, high fiber, no gluten, high protein, low carbohydrates and low sugar.  You will need the following ingredients:

-unsweetened almond milk (please make sure no carrageenan) I use Whole Foods 365 unsweetened vanilla almond milk

-ground flaxseeds

-apple cider vinegar

-liquid stevia

-coconut flour

In a bowl, one you would eat cereal out of, add 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds.  Add 1/4 cup boiled almond milk.  I use a teapot to warm my almond milk, which only takes a minute.  But you could always resort to the microwave (which I do not recommend).  Add 1-2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar to the almond milk and ground flaxseed mixture and stir for about 1 minute.  I like to add more apple cider vinegar as it gives the dish an apple-kick.  Then add 20-30 drops liquid stevia, depending on how sweet you would like this to be.  You can always add more, so start with less.  Finally add 1/4 cup coconut flour and stir.  You will notice the mixture becoming thick like cream of wheat cereal.  You can adjust the thickness by adding more/less coconut flour.

That’s it!  Now enjoy!!!  This is super simple to make in a few minutes and a very healthy-powered breakfast or snack.

If you don’t like coconut, you can always substitute with almond meal/flour or hazelnut flour.  I’ve used almond flour/meal on occasion to change things up.

If you have questions about where to purchase or what brands, let me know!
