A Big, Crunchy, Better Breakfast Cereal


I’m going to share with you a bigger, better, crunchier breakfast cereal. Some of you aren’t going to be interested in this concept at all, and that’s cool (I think a taco recipe is up next). For some of you, this is going to be a game changer. I’ve been making my own dry cereal breakfast blends in recent months. But, here’s where things got interesting. I started making it in increasingly larger, and larger batches. Now I cherry-pick boxes of favorite cereals, dump entire boxes into the most massive bowl I can find, and add quick oats, oat bran, ground flax, and freeze dried fruit. Give everything a really good toss, and transfer to two XXXL glass Weck jars. The big-batch thing is the magic. Especially if you’re at all lazy, but still want a great breakfast. I’m including the recipe for what I think of as my "master" cereal recipe, but use it as a jumping off point, and don’t get hung up on whether you can track down the exact cereals I use.

So much to say about this. My cereals of choice are oat flakes, shredded wheat, and some sort of dense nugget cereal – but a mix of sugar-free / whole grain / high-fiber cereals is what you’re going for. Said another way, a mix of textures, and nutrient diversity. Because the components are dry, it means weeks of quick breakfasts, and you can easily scoop some into baggies for simple travel breakfasts.

This is the berry version. There are times I do a "tropical" version, swapping out the berries for freeze-dried bananas, pineapple, and apples. You can also add fresh fruit when you add the milk, and anything else you have on hand.
