Today we are going to make some Chocolate Hazelnut baklava cereal!
Did you just say baklava Cereal!!!!…. Do you mean crunchy nutty, gooey honey clusters of amazingness!!! dusted with cardamom and toasted to mouth watering perfection!
Yep I said baklava cereal! Alright!
The traditional Turkish dessert is made by filling the layers in between phyllo dough with nuts such as pistachios, walnuts, and almonds and a honey syrup.
Even though I would love!!! to eat baklava for breakfast it’s not really very healthy.
So I made it into a bit of a healthier option for breakfast!
First by taking out the pesky gluteny phyllo dough and adding extra nuts.
Nuts contain healthy fats and are an excellent source of protein, they also contain vitamin E, folic acid, potassium, and fiber, not to mention lots of other good for you things.
I used raw local honey for yummy sweetness and to add an extra boost of antioxidants.
(I eat mine with coconut milk! Can I just say OMG! it’s an amazing! combo)
To make this amazing cereal even more lick the bowl worthy, I added cacao nibs one of the most antioxidant rich foods on the planet, they also contain polyphenols, flavonols, and minerals such as magnesium, and iron.
Plus I added
80% dark chocolate pieces for an extra creamy and nice bitter chocolate flavor.
(I like my Chocolate like I like my man Strong!)
(Did I mention this cereal has antioxidants! LOL!)
