I have been enjoying the summer and doing a little traveling. My blogging got moved to the back burner. Today I am back with a recipe for a seeded cereal you can make ahead and then just heat up like you would oatmeal. It is adapted from the Paleo Mama.com website.
Hope you enjoy this. As you know I hate eggs and therefore, always looking for paleo quick ideas for breakfast, a snack or anytime.
To make the cereal add all the seeds into a food processor. Blend until the mixture looks like oats. Place in an air tight container and store in the fridge.
When ready to eat. Scoop out 2/3 cups of the nut mixture. Slowly add in one cup of coconut milk and heat on medium heat on the stove. When the mixture is hot pour into serving bowl, add the protein powder and stir well. This will prevent the protein powder from becoming lumpy.
Add some stevia or honey if you prefer a little sweeter.
You can use any nut combination you like and omit the coconut flakes if you don't like coconut.

My meal prepping this week includes this fabulous Blueberry Crisp. I think this paleo version is better than the traditional. I will enjoy this dish this week for breakfast with a little greek yogurt and for a hearty snack. It is very easy to make.
Add all the ingredients except the blueberries in a food processor until roughly chopped. Place the blueberries in a small banking dish and copy with the crisp. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Let it cool to room temperature before serving.

I saw this recipe on Instagram on the FitFork. I tried the recipe as she provided here but I thought it was missing a few things for my taste so I made it several more times adjusting a few ingredients and the recipe I am providing has incorporated those changes. As you know, if you follow my blog I hate eggs, it would be so much simpler if I could learn to like them but they make me gag! I can usually get away with them in baked goods.
I wanted to pump up the protein power so I added more protein powder, some salt and cinnamon. I experimented with both vanilla and chocolate protein powders. My two favorites are Bio Chem Whey Vanilla protein and Vega Chocolate Protein and Greens. The batter is drier with these additions so I added almond milk to remedy this.
I paired the cookie with half a cooked apple chopped finely and microwaved for a minute and then added a dash of cinnamon on top. This breakfast stayed with me for a long time! I used this handy little gadget to chop my apple. If you haven’t used one you have to get one! I’m not big on kitchen gadgets but this is a must have.
The cookie freezes well so make several of them, pop em in the freezer and you have a nice breakfast when you are crunched for time.

A nice portable breakfast with a nice mix of carbs, protein and healthy fats. When I entered the recipe in My Macros I got 279 calories, 12.86 grams fat, 21 grams carbs and 15 grams protein.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together and form into a ball and press on to a prepared baking pan. Add the pumpkin seeds and chocolate chips and press again to set. Bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Then enjoy or make several and freeze.
