  • 3 cups of puffed barley
  • 1 cup of steel cut oats
  • 1 cup of TVP total vegetable protein
  • 2 tablespoons of flax seed
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of sliced / whole almonds or other nut of choice*
  • 4 egg whites**
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup of all natural sweetener: Agave syrup maple syrup, or honey (add more for a sweeter cereal)
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon - dependent upon how cinnamony you want it
  • Pinch of kosher salt


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg whites and sweetener. Add to dry ingredients and mix very well, ensuring all is coated with egg whites. The egg whites act as a binder which is what gives you the crispy nuggets of goodness.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and add mixture in an even layer.
  • Bake in middle rack for 12 - 15 minutes (check for crispy level), then remove from oven and flip cereal. Here is where you'll have large chunks - flip them but ensure that you rearrange so that it lies flat again to the baking pan.
  • Bake for another 10-13 minutes.
  • Cool and then store in an airtight container.


*Add any additional nuts / dried berries you want! ** Don't throw away those egg yolks! Make some Mayonnaise: http://www.servedfromscratch.com/mayonnaise-from-scratch/Make some Chocolate Pudding: http://www.servedfromscratch.com/chocolate-raspberry-pudding/
