Crunchy Gluten Free Granola Cereal
In truth, I started my week off in a bad mood. I'm always the first to say, "stop with the negative talk", but today really hit me the wrong way. I felt off from the second I got out of bed and let it ruin me for a good portion of the day. Things just weren't going my way and well, yeah…I had a serious case of the Mondays.

Well, I've decided enough of the negative talk. Somebody posted on my instagram feed that it's all in how you look at it and I'm going to make today better! I'm working on some new projects and I need to look at the adventure part of these things and embrace the change. Negativity only breeds more negativity…so, today, I choose happiness! I'm always so inspired with how Katie puts her positive foot forward. Thank you Katie for making me see the Marvelousness in my Monday!

So, I've decided to share one of my favorite recipes as of late. I made this one up last week and have made it 4 times since. This should tell you how much my guys like it...before I could take a real picture, the container was empty and I was told that I needed to make more. 

This is more of a sweetened cereal than a true granola, in my opinion. You know the Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, well, this is kind of like that. I used Attune Foods cornflake cereal with some Bob's Red Mill oats and their new hazelnut meal/flour to make a super crunchy delicious cereal! This also works as a crunchy topping to baked goods or doughnuts (which is what I did with the picture above). So easy and so delicious!

Crunchy Hazelnut Granola Cereal
(makes about 5 cups)

3 cup corn flakes (I used Attune Foods)
1 1/2 cup quick oatmeal (I used Bob's Red Mill)
3/4 cup hazelnut meal/flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
9 TBSP egg whites
9 TBSP coconut sugar (I used NuNaturals)
3 TBSP melted coconut oil

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 pan with coconut oil.

Combine all of the ingredients in your prepared pan. Stir everything together smashing up the cereal as you thoroughly combine the ingredients. Bake for an hour to an hour and a half stirring every 15 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Happy Monday friends! I hope you're having a great one!
