Homemade Oat and Honey Cereal

Nutritious recipe using organic ingredients including highly processed, commercial brands as a healthy breakfast alternative to homemade oats and honey cereal.

Knowing how to make healthy cold breakfast cereal is an important skill because commercial versions are some of the most toxic processed foods on the market.

Some people are surprised to learn that virtually all cold breakfast cereal brands are unhealthy.

This includes organic brands that list only a few ingredients on the nutrition label.

Why is this?

It is the processing of cold breakfast cereals that is the most important issue. It’s not just about the ingredients, although those are certainly important as well.

The violent factory extrusion of grains required to make boxed cereals destroys the integrity of the protein molecules.

Eating this stuff is essentially the same as “allergy in a bowl”.

It’s hard to cut cold breakfast cereals out of the diet, though, because they’re so convenient and incredibly addictive.

Thus, you will need a few tricks in your tool bag to wean yourself. In my experience, the homemade version is an effective way to eliminate them for good.

You will find this recipe for oats and honey cereal extremely filling, unlike the experience of commercial brands, which are easy to overeat and do not keep you feeling full for very long.

You can substitute virgin coconut oil instead of the (flavorless) expeller pressed coconut oil in this recipe, but it will add a slight coconut flavor to the cereal.
