I have a lot of friends who follow a strictly low carb or Paleo diet and they are constantly searching for non-egg breakfasts. One friend in particular is constantly mourning the loss of her favorite morning cereal. So when I saw this recipe I had it give it a try. And to be honest, I was surprised by how yummy it was. Now I do want to be honest, this won't be exactly like the cereal you remember, but it is nutty and filling and delicious. The almonds and pumpkin seeds are pulsed in a food processor to create an almost granola like consistency and then paired with the chia seeds, milk, and your favorite fruit. It's hearty and a pretty yummy low carb breakfast.
One quick note, if you think you will be eating this often, I recommend pulsing a bigger batch of the almonds and pumpkin seeds and just storing them in an airtight container. That way you don't have to take out the food processor every time.
