Does anyone have any recipes for homemade cereals? I don't want to use anything like premade mixes such as Carbquick, etc. Would like to make it strictly from scratch and not use Splenda or any type of flour or grain either.
I have made Maria's wonderful blueberry morning cereal and am looking for more recipes like that. Thanks.

I found these.
Hot Cereals Birgit
2 cups Crude Wheat Bran
2 cups Flaxseed meal
1 cup unflavored whey protein -or vanilla whey protein
Mix it all together.
To prepare take 1/2 cup of this "not oatmeal" mix and add about 3/4 cup of water. I say “about” as the amount depends on how thick or thin you like your hot cereal! Microwave for about 2 minutes on high (depending on your microwave) until it is thick and bubbly. Watch it closely though, as it can boil over in a split second. Stir and let it sit for a minute or so.
Chocolate Cereal Replacement Low Carbin It
1/2 cup vanilla whey or egg white protein
3/4 cup peanut flour or almond flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup coconut oil OR NATURAL almond/peanut butter*
4 tablespoons of erythritol
2 TBS water (just enough to hold dough together)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together the whey, nut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the peanut butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the water and sweetener to form a stiff dough. On parchment paper (lightly greased), roll the dough out to 1/8 inch in thickness. Cut into small diamond shapes with a pizza cutter. Place parchment onto cookie sheets. Bake for 7-10 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are lightly browned (I broke up pieces and baked another 3 minutes to crisp up the pieces). Remove from oven to cool.

I second the one Carolyn posted. I've made it quite a few times times.
Here's one I made up too. Both recipes can be changed up to use what tastes good to you. I'm glad you posted this thread. It's warmer weather so cold cereal will hit the spot!!
