Toasted Chia Ginger Pear Cereal

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

My step-mom just sent me a few books that I will be adding to the PT Mollie library. One of them is called Thrive Foods by Brendan Brazier. It offers 200 plant-based recipes for peak health.


After thumbing through, I found a recipe for breakfast cereal. It sounds so good I might have it as an after work snack too. It makes 4 cups (~5 servings).

1/2 pear, diced
1 cup oats (or cooked or sprouted quinoa, to make cereal gluten free)
1/2 cup diced almonds
1/2 cup hemp protein
1/2 cup unhulled sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 tsp ground stevia leaf
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup hemp oil
1/2 cup molasses
2 tbsp apple juice
1 tbsp grated ginger root
Coconut oil


1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, combine pear, oats, almonds, chia seeds, hemp protein, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, stevia, and sea salt.

3. In a small bowl, blend together hemp oil, molasses, apple juice, and ginger root.

4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well.

5. Lightly oil a baking tray. Spread mix onto tray.

6. Bake for one hour. Let cool and break into pieces.

7. Keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

8. Enjoy with milk. (The recipe then links to Sunflower Seed Hemp Milk and Sacha Inchi Milk)

Let me know if you make any variations to the recipe. Yum!
