This recipe is from maria's health blog, you can google the name to find more of her recipes. She has recipes in the amoung friends cookbooks too. I have been making this for a couple weeks and it is really yummy!! I would warm the milk and then add it to the other ingredients that way you can adjust how much liquid you need to make the cereal to your liking.


¾ cup of warm unsweetened vanilla or chocolate almond milk
2 TBS freshly ground golden flaxseeds (or more for a thicker "cereal")
1-2 tsp psyllium husk
1 scoop vanilla or chocolate egg white/whey protein
1 TBS vanilla extract
1 drop of stevia glycerite
½ tsp of nutmeg
½ tsp cinnamon Optional: you can add some coconut flakes, nuts or peanut butter to this recipe.

Combine warm milk, flax, whey, stevia, cinnamon and nutmeg (and other toppings) in a bowl. Stir well and let sit for a few minutes until the “oatmeal” thickens. Enjoy!

NUTRITIONAL COMPARISON (per serving): Traditional Cream of Wheat with Skim Milk = 230 calories, 39.6 carbs, 1.3 fiber, 12 protein “Healthified” Cream of Wheat = 230 calories, 5g carbs, 4g fiber, 29g protein

how does the tummy do with all that fiber from the flax

I don't have any tummy upset but it does move things right along, if you know what I mean. I think it's due to the psyllium husk... I use the 2 tsp when I make it.

I think it's the closest thing to cream of wheat I have tried and it's really easy to make.
I make up a large bag and keep it in the fridge so whenever I feel like having a bowl I just measure out about 1/4 cup and add it to warm almond milk or sometimes I use half and half or cream/water mix.

Be sure to drink plenty of liquidd with this because of the added fiber. I always drink a lot of water during the day, so that's not a problem for me.

bumping for winter

I sort of made this yesterday..But after I combined the dry ingredients, I added some
boiling water to hydrate it and get the texture I wanted.

Then I added some heavy cream..Maybe 1 to 2 Tbs. Very yummy..

I have been eating this made with 2 TB goldern flaxmeal, 1 heaping tsp psylium powder, 1/2 to 3/4 c. hot water, sweetner, and maple flavoring. Stir in 1 to 2 TB half n half and enjoy a long lasting breakfast. Love the flax effect!

With the protein powder added, this is pretty much the same thing as one of those super expensive hot cereal mixes for sale.....like 8 bucks a bag. this is much easier on the wallet and customizable to boot.
