Let’s Swap Secrets For Cereal

by HEAB on June 29, 2011

Attune Foods sent me two free boxes of gluten free cereal. Thanks Attune! I received a box of brown rice cereal and a box of their corn flakes. The ingredients for each cereal could not simpler:

Brown Rice Cereal: Organic brown rice, Organic brown rice syrup, Sea salt.

Corn Flakes: Organic milled corn, Sea salt.

Truth be told, both cereals tasted kind of bland on their own. However, add a few raisins and some cinnamon?


Perfection In A Bowl

Oh, and since I didn’t feel like making any nut milk, I drowned my cereal in a diluted version of Sarena’s coconut cream simply by whisking together 2 TBSP coconut flour with 1/2 cup water. ‘Twas good. You should try it. Love how it gets all thick and creamy.

Besides eating several bowls of cinnamon raisin goodness, I tried each cereal in a recipe.


I used the corn flakes as a crunchy topping for a tuna noodle casserole. Into my baking dish went one box of prepared brown rice noodle mac & cheese from Trader Joe’s, frozen peas, two cans of tuna, and a layer of corn flakes. Loved the crunch the cereal added, but the casserole was missing something…perhaps a can of creamy soup. Was that mom’s secret?

Speaking of secrets, one of my friends once told me the best way to make chocolate chip cookies is to add Rice Krispies to the batter. Everyone loved her crunchy cookies, and so I decided to replace 1/2 cup of the rolled oats in this oatie recipe with 1/2 cup of the brown rice cereal.



Success and sooooo good!
