My latest obsession is the Rawnola Cereal. It’s becoming a part of my weekly food prep, and I eat it for breakfast every day. Not only breakfast, but I also drizzle it on smoothie bowls, and yoghurt, and I eat it as the plain chunks as a quick snack.
But apart from being a brilliant snack, there are actually also some serious health benefits to this cereal (and reasons why you should consider switching up your regular go to cereal).
– Oats are filled with protein and fiber, as well as slow carbs.
– Dates are good for your digestions, and are full of B vitamins, which assist the body in breaking down sugar, energy production and your emotional wellbeing.
– Almond milk is very alkalising (brings your body to the right pH levels :)), and is of course plant-based, which means that it is a good substitute to milk. Furthermore, almonds are also packed full og calcium, iron and magnesium.
What’s not to like about all this?
The recipe itself is extremely easy. It only requires 3 ingredients (sirup and chocolate is optional). Alle you have to do is blend it all together in a food processor or a blender. Enjoy!
Is this too plain for you? Then maybe try this other variation of rawnola, that among other things has hemp seeds and almonds in it.
– INGREDIENTS –
makes aprox. 1 liter
2 cups of pitted dates
2 cups of raw rolled oats
2 cups of dried coconut
2 tbs agave sirup or acacia honey (optional)
you can add some chunks of chocolate if you wish 🙂
For the cereal:
Almond milk (can be bought in most supermarkets)
– DIRECTIONS –
- Using a food processor (or blender if you don’t have one), add equal amounts of all ingredients (except for agave sirup).
- Blend and pulse until desired consistency. I recommend that you stop and scrap down the sides a few times, until everything is mixed well together.
- If you wish to add agave sirup, slowly drizzle a small amount of sirup while pulsing. This helps make it more sticky.
- Store in a glass jar or a plastic container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
- When making the Rawnola Cereal, all you have to do is add the rawnola to a bowl, and top with fresh or frozen berries (I like to use frozen blueberries, it gets a smushy consistency).
- Pour almond milk on top, and you have yourself your own vegan cereal, enjoy!
