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.

Add the chia seeds and milk to a bowl and stir together. This will let the chia seeds begin to gel a bit and expand in size. They won't expand quite like in a chia seed pudding. However if you prefer that texture, you could make this mixture the night before and leave it in the fridge.
Add the almonds and pumpkin seeds to a food processor. Pulse into a granola like consistency.
Add to the chia seeds and top with fruit and cinnamon.
