Gluten free Crunchy Flax seeds with Chia served with coconut and berries

that pretty cup

Recently, I had some reader requests to me to post ideas for healthy gluten free meal ideas. (Thank you so much for writing to me – they mean the world to me 🙂 )

I try to incorporate healthy ideas especially in the breakfast meals. I am normally egg n’ toast breakfast fan, and having any other breakfast can be challenging. My kids love cereals, so getting them away from the sugary stuff can be tough. I came across this box of gluten free crunchy box of cereals and it looked perfect for breakfast that is healthy and gluten free.

Interesting thing was, while the breakfast was filling and I had it a bit late, I was hungry again by the time lunch came. It’s semi sweet, and you can have it just on its own, or with yogurt. I combined it with coconut soaked fat free milk and berries.

You can add your choice of milk – almond, soy or fat free. I am lactose intolerant in pure milk form, so I use Lactaid©. Play around with fruits. I have added mangoes, bananas, peaches too since I made this and I particularly liked the mango version (no pics unfortunately).

Look at the coconut flakes and the squished berries…..

in a cup

This is a quick fix but a delicious breakfast that you can also serve to guests, or simply cap it up and take to work and eat while you are working.

    I love coconut anything, so this looks perfect for me. Plus it’s loaded with good nutritious things, that also happen to be yummy. Perfect dish! Thanks so much.

    I love crunchy so I know I would adore this, but sadly, I have a lot of food allergies and intolerances so I don’t think I’d be able to! I will just dream of munching away! 😉

    This looks good. We can’t get flax cereal here (is it a type of cereal brand?) but we can get flax seeds but they look quite different. Is there something else we can use?

    I love coconut flakes and have plenty in my pantry. This sounds like a healthy dish to use my coconut flakes!
