Breakfast Cereal
Something different to eat for breakfast.

1/2 cup blanched white Almonds
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 erythitol
1/2 cup of organic golden flax meal (red bob) its like flour
1/2 cup of Coconut oil
3/4 cup of water

Place all in a food processor and blend until creamy and thin. I then added some crushed walnuts and mixed but didn't blend. I poured the whole thing out onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and baked for over an hour at 250. I broke up it up into pieces after about 30 minutes and kept baking until it was all hard and crispy. Very good, it didn't last long enough to buy any low carb milk, so another batch is warranted.

I may try some dried fruit, cranberrys or blue berrys if I can find some with out the added sugar.

Heheh! See? That's exactly the problem I have around THIS ranch! :D Guess I'll just use cream diluted with water on mine . . . wish I had a food processor, but mebbe the blender will do okay.

Strawberry? I can't get erythritol around here either - I buy mine online at Netrition.

This one deserves a bump & I finally got to try it tonight, so . . . bump bump!!

It is just scrumptious! I can't think of any commercial concoction that tastes any better!

My wife has had a run in with pancreatitus, so we are kind of off the nuts for a while. But I can't wait to make another batch, may try adding something else to the mix.
Do keep us posted on that . . . her issues as well as any good tweaks you come up with for the cereal. I finished mine this evening so will make a new batch tomorrow . . . I got a coupla bags of Ideal brown sweetener (xylitol, etc.) and I may try that instead of erythritol.

And Marty? Chin up, my friend . . . :hug:
