Hot Flax Cereal

When I first did the Atkins induction program back in the Spring of 2002 I found myself craving cereals for breakfast after I grew weary of eggs and leftovers. I tried a few recipes (that failed miserably) and by chance and imagination came up with a hot flax cereal that was so good, my husband and I continue to eat it to this day even when aren't following a strict low carb lifestyle. 

I always have it on hand in a container in the freezer and I've never once made hot oatmeal since 2002 when I started to make this in its place. Oatmeal now pales in comparison both in flavor and health benefits as flax is jam packed with healthy goodness. I also use this mix when I make my Flax Muffins.

Hot Flax Cereal

2 c ground flax seed
2 c wheat bran
4 heaping scoops vanilla protein powder
1/2 t salt
sliced toasted almonds
Cinnamon to taste

This is a dry mix. To store, keep in an air tight container in the freezer. To use, mix about 1/2 cup of dry mix in a bowl with enough water to make a soupy mixture. Microwave for 40 seconds. Remove and add heavy cream and Splenda to taste, similar to how you would a traditional bowl of oatmeal.

The dry mix

After microwaving, add cream or half and half and Splenda to your own tastes
