Cinnamon Breakfast Cereal

Updated: Apr 27, 2018








I originally saw this recipe on My New Roots and new straight away that I wanted to try it even though I only had about 20% of the original ingredients....but it turned out just fine! I now keep a bag of theses as snacks on the go which keep me from binge eating when I'm starving!










RECIPE -

100g teff flour

50g coconut flour

40g dark brown sugar

1tbsp cinamoon

pinch sea salt

50g milled chia seeds

125ml + a little bit more of apple puree that I made here

2tbsp coconut oil


Mix all the dry ingredients together well and then add in the coconut oil and apple puree till you form a dough. Roll it out between two pieces of baking paper and cook in a preheated oven at 160C for roughly 20ish minutes.








TEFF FLOUR - 

There has been so much recently about this "wonder" flour. Personally I love the the nutty deep taste it has but this guy has so much more going for it. It's great for circulation, proper bone and cell growth/development (which let's face it, I'm doing a lot right now!) It's said that Teff can help with the symptoms of diabetes - gestational diabetes is a serious issue in Ireland. It's said that if you get gestational diabetes during pregnancy, not only will you more than likely get it again if you become pregnant again but it is also more likely that you'll get type 1 or type 2 in the future! Teff is also said to optimise digestion and help with heart health. See - it's quite a player!

COCONUT FLOUR - 

High in fibre, healthy fats and protein this is a great product if you can get it to work for you. I often find it quite hard to work with but I love adding it in little amounts to things.

CINNAMON - 

This is just a beautiful wonder spice. It's used in certain parts as an antiseptic, for detoxifying and also strengthens and energizes tissue in the body. It can also act as a pain reliever so for all those cramps and stretching we get during pregnancy this is a good one to add. 

CHIA SEEDS -

A great source of omega 3 fatty acids and always handy to just sprinkle!

APPLE PUREE - 

Apples are so good for a number of reasons (some of which I explained here ) but they are also really good cholesterol lowering properties plus they are great at reducing inflammation (another joy of pregnancy!)
