Meals from Mel! “Hempmeal” Breakfast Cereal

February 26th, 2020 | no comments

 

Looking for a hot breakfast that’ll keep you satisfied and NOT raise your blood sugar? 

JUMP TO RECIPE

I really enjoy hot cereal on cold winter mornings, but whenever I eat oatmeal, I wind up hungry an hour later. Why? Because even though it’s a whole grain and better for you than a bowl of Frosted Flakes, it still raises blood sugar. And what goes up, must come down. The problem is, with the “down” comes a return of hunger and food cravings. 

The base of this recipe is hemp seed— a mildly-flavored source of plant-based protein that provides all nine essential amino acids (making it a complete protein). They’re also one of the best plant-based sources of essential anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids! Flax and chia are the others…and I managed to squeeze both into this recipe!

Hempmeal Breakfast Cereal can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for tomorrow’s breakfast. Just add a few tablespoons of unsweetened almond, cashew, or coconut milk, give it a good stir and pop in the microwave for 60-90 seconds. 

I don’t add sweetener to my Hempmeal Breakfast Cereal because the fruit, vanilla, and cinnamon make it sweet enough. If you prefer, add just a drizzle of raw honey or pure maple syrup.
