Homemade cereal

Being vegan & gluten free as well as trying to remain healthy is very important to me & my family. That being said, we love breakfast & it’s been difficult to find a good cereal that is nice to eat during the week, and that adopts all of the characteristics we need. So, I make them! This particular one we make often & it’s super good for you as well as filling! Hope you enjoy this recipe & are even inspired to come up with some of your own combinations! Let me know what you think & what you  create! 😀
