Hemp and Flax Seed Cereal

Hemp and Flax Seed Cereal (shutterstock_239882038)If you’re a fan of cinnamon-squared cereals, but not a fan of their high sugar content, you’ll be happy to learn that it takes just a few minutes to make your own, low-sugar, no-preservative version. Rather than sugar, this hemp and flax seed cereal uses apple juice and coconut oil for sweeteners. Plus, because the cereal contains primarily flax seeds and hemp seeds, your breakfast or snack will be high in fiber, which supports your digestive health and decreases the amount of “bad” cholesterol in your circulatory system. Plus, hemp seeds are high in fatty acids that promote a healthy heart, as well as protein, which promotes tissue building and repair.

This recipe will set you up for six, ½ cup servings. So, you can make the cereal on Sunday and be all set for the rest of the week.

Ingredients:
½ cup hemp hearts
½ cup flax seed
½ cup apple juice
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Add the hemp hearts, flax seed and ground cinnamon into a food processor or powerful blender and blend thoroughly. Add in the apple juice and coconut oil and blend again, until the mixture is of a smooth consistency.

Spread the batter out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. The batter should be about 1/16 of an inch thick. Place the sheet of cereal mixture in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Lower the temperature to 250 degrees and bake for 10 additional minutes. Take the cookie sheet out of the oven and cut the batter into small, bite-sized squares with a knife or pizza cutter.

With the oven off, put the cookie sheet back into the oven for an hour. After the hour is up, your cereal should be crispy. If not, stick it back in the oven for another 15 minutes.

Serve the cereal with your choice of milk.
