It’s easy to get in a cereal rut, but hot or cold, I have some hearty breakfast cereal recipes (in honor of Earth Day!) that will satisfy your cravings and fuel you until lunch. First up is an easy overnight granola recipe – just 20 minutes of attention and you can “set it and forget it” until breakfast.
Depending on my mood, I’ll serve this granola with a generous dousing of coconut milk beverage or sprinkle it atop some creamy coconut milk yogurt. If nuts are okay for you, I recommend the Almond Plus almond milk beverage or Almond Plus Greek-style yogurt. Both have an extra dose of protein, and the yogurt is sweet, yet low in sugars. It’s my new favorite!
But I said 10 recipes, didn’t I? The following vegan breakfast cereal recipes use a range of different grains, including gluten-free oats (rolled, quick, or steel cut) and whole grain rice (you can use short or long grain brown rice or even red rice). I also recommend quinoa or millet as a delicious hot cereal option. Both work well in place of rice; they aren’t quite as creamy, but have a nice “nutty” flavor. Another option is to go grain-free, with a muesli of nuts, seeds, or even lentils (recipe below)!
Finally, don’t hesitate to top them with some seasonal, and preferably local fruit. Right now, strawberries and citrus are available in most areas. In the summer, go crazy with berries and chopped peaches. During cooler months, apples and pears are warm and delicious options.
