Breakfast: Hot Flaxseed Cereal

If you are avoiding wheat or trying to eat low-carb, then breakfast can sometimes be challenging.  A wheatless option I've been experimenting with is hot flaxseed cereal. Here is the basic recipe for one serving:


4 Tbs. flaxseed meal
1/2 C almond milk (the 60 calorie per serving variety)
1 tsp. brown sugar
Walnut pieces


Put the flaxseed meal in a microwave-safe bowl.  Measure 1/2 cup almond milk into a glass measuring cup.  Heat the milk in a microwave for one minute.

Very, very slowly pour the hot milk into the bowl of flaxseed meal, stirring the milk into the meal using a fork. Stir until incorporated.  Add the brown sugar.  Put the bowl into the microwave and heat for about 30 seconds.  Stir in some walnut pieces and serve.

This basic recipe can be modified by adding fruit or applesauce, or substituting the sweetener of your choice, just like you would when preparing oatmeal or cream of wheat.
