Breakfast Series Part 2- No cooking required

IMG_0700

This was a oat bar recipe gone wrong, but thankfully it was successfully repurposed into oat nut and chocolate granola!

Recipe:

2 cups rolled oats- toasted

2 cups puffed rice cereal

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup flax seeds

1/4 cup pistachios

1/2 cup stevia chocolate chips (you can use any type you’d like)

1/4 honey

2 tbsp melted butter

Mix everything together, chill in refrigerator, crumble when ready to use.

I served it on yogurt with fresh cherries and topped it with almond milk, but it tastes good on it’s own.

  • 1 mango
  • 1 bunch of cilantro

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

 

Directions:

Wash and cut all veggies, into a matchstick shape or thin slices. Fill a mixing bowl with hot water from the tap. One roll at a time, dip a sheet of rice paper in hot water for about 5 seconds. Place sheet on work top and in the centre fill with sliced veggies. Roll wrapper half way over veggies, tuck in sides and then finish rolling, “like a burrito”.  This will make approximately ten rolls, do each one at a time

Add all dipping sauce ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.

If you like a protein in your salad roll, shredded rotisserie chicken is a good addition.
