This recipe just sort of happened… I am going to refer to it as the Big Bang Theory. I stepped into my kitchen, started pulling ingredients out onto my counter and ka-boom! Flavors and shapes just started forming.
Roll it in a ball, it’s a truffle? No. Flatten it and it’s a cookie?! No. Press it flat and square it up and it’s a bar? Naw. Crumble it up on the dehydrator sheet and it’s a granola? Nope! Put the batter in a piping bag and it’s… it’s…it’s a cereal!
Yea, yea that’s the ticket! I mean, this recipe could be anyone of those things that I just mentioned but the more I played around, the more I started craving a cereal.
A long-lost food that I just don’t indulge in that much anymore. I miss snuggling up on the end of the couch, watching the Flintstones (HUGE fan) with my cereal bowl right under my chin as I blindly spooned in bite after bite of cereal and let’s not forget to mention the milk that was always dripping from my chin. Aaah, sometimes I wish life was as simple now as it was back then.
In the picture to the right here, I mixed this cereal along with another new creation, Cacao Buckwheat Puff Cereal. I took this to my girlfriend this morning for her to have for breakfast. She shot me an email later in the day that read, “I did love the cereal. It was the perfect mix of sweet and non-sweet, of crispy and chewy!! I could eat it without milk like trail mix or with milk…both ways were delicious!” Now, it doesn’t have to be paired with the other cereal, it just added another level of depth. Serve it up with your favorite nut milk, turn on the Flintstones and lose yourself!

One of the greatest joys when creating raw food recipes is experimenting with different ingredients… a practice that I highly encourage. Daily I get questions regarding substitutions. Of course we all might have different dietary needs and tastes which could necessitate altering a recipe. I love to share with you what I create for myself, my husband, friends and family. I spend a lot of time selecting the right ingredients with a particular goal in mind, looking to build a certain flavor and texture.
So as you experiment with substitutions, remember they are what they sound like, they are substitutes for the preferred item. Generally they are not going to behave, taste, or have the same texture as the suggested ingredient. Some may work, and others may not and I can’t promise what the results will be unless I’ve tried them myself. So have fun, don’t be afraid, and remember, substituting is how I discovered many of my unique dishes.
