Make Your Own Cereal – Why Buy Pr-Made?
The rolled oats are easiest to digest if you soak them in a milk for a couple of hours (or leave them overnight in the fridge to soak). Toasting in a hot oven or dry-frying brings out the flavor of the sunflower and pumpkin seeds. But if you’re in a hurry, as most of us are in the morning, you can just place all the ingredients in a bowl and eat.
- 4-5 Tbsp whole rolled oats
- 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1-2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 4-5 Brazil nuts or 6-8 other unsalted nuts of your choice, chop roughly
- ½ dessertspoon dried fruit if you don’t want to use fresh fruit.
- Almond, oat or rice milk
- Add fresh fruit in season, eg) strawberries, raspberries, chopped mango, peach, pear or apple, gooseberries, blueberries.
Another way with sunflower seeds (even healthier) is to wait until the sunflower seeds start sprouting. This removes any enzyme inhibitors and provides natural sweetness and natural enzymes to the milk. In this way you can use (the even cheaper) unhulled sunflower or pumpkin seeds for making milk.
