A well-balanced breakfast sets up your energy levels, revs up your metabolism and reduces the likelihood of binging later in the day. They don’t call it ‘the most important meal of the day’ for nothing.

This cereal recipe is low in sugar, and made with minimally processed ingredients. Preparing a large batch will save you time and effort every morning. Use a measuring cup as a scoop to make you more mindful of your serving size.

Start your day right with my simple, wholesome, cost-effective, time friendly and, most importantly, tasty recipe.
