Toasted & Baked Multi Grain Cereal


We spent a quiet Mother’s Day at home, a typical Sunday, really.
We made breakfast; baked multigrain cereal with chocolate chips, and stayed in bed all day reading.
Breakfast tasted like dessert…
My mom made us promise we wouldn’t make a fuss this Mother’s Day.
Last year we made her brunch, days before this Mother’s Day she’d been humming ‘It Is Well With My Soul’.
Contentment… a trait I wish I could learn from my mom.
The simple joy of sharing breakfast and nourishment with loved ones.


This is my new favourite way to make hot cereal; toasted and then baked in individual-sized cups.
A combination of oats, rye, barley and wheat toasted for a few minutes before baking in almond milk, applesauce, and coconut oil with a handful of chocolate chips thrown in for good measure.
