Sugar Free Cereal

Sugar Free Cereal

Twice a week my boss asks for cereal. Simple, except he does not, or more accurately should not eat sugar. I was serving him brown rice, sugar free rice crispies for a number of years until he got bored. I bought 8 different "sugar free" brands from Whole Foods. We did a taste test, but he unfortunately - and typically - liked the one which contained some maple syrup. So, I had to make a version of the cereal he chose that was also healthy for him.

Enter, Michael's Sugar Free Cereal.

Ingredients
3 Cups Organic Oats
1 Cup Flax Seeds
1 Cup Pumpkin Seeds

Maltitol

Half the calories of sugar, with a lesser effect on blood glucose

This is what you should end up with.

Allow to cool completely. If some oats are sticking together, give it a little smash and they should seperate.

Puffed Rice
