Spooning is for Cereal!



Made my best cereal ever this morning!

Started with some cooked oats




Sliced a banana on top...


And generously sprinkles with dark chocolate chips!


Plus a few splashes of almond milk softened it up a bit :)



Question: What was the last cereal you ate?

omg that looks so yummy. It's almost dinner time here and now I'm flirting with the idea of doing a breakfast dinner :D

Last cereal I made was muesli with flax seed meel, wheat germ, banana and almond slices with vanilla rice milk and a dollop of peanut butter on top of course.. mmMMm

Why is breakfast soo good?

Chelsea said... [reply]

This looks so good! I love how you combined cereal and oatmeal. That's a great idea to make cereal more filling!

The last cereal I had was Kashi Honey Almond Flax in my yogurt mess this morning.

Ooo delicious looking. It's been a while since I added cereal to oatmeal, and you're really making me crave it again. And with chocolate and bananas? Swoon.

The last cereal I had was some Kashi GoLeanCrunch mixed with fruit and yogurt. Love, love.

ahhh this looks so good! normally i don't go for cereal for breakfast because it doesn't fill me up - but i bet this would. never thought to make an oatmeal-cereal combo!
I do love cereal for night time snacks, though. I had a bowl of puffins with banana and sunflower butter last night. Yum!

I try to stay away from what I'm about to say since I am trying to put on a facade of being a classy lady, but "nom nom NOOOOOM!!!!" That looks delicious.

I have my nightly concoction of a blueberry muffin toasted and crumbled up, some fruit, nuts, and dried fruit topped with cinnamon and almond milk. Toatally hits the spot after a long day!

lequan@luvtoeat said... [reply]

Holy moley! How cute are those flake people!!!??? I'm still in awe! My cereals are sooo plain compared to yours. You are super creative! I just have plain ol' mini wheats (blush). Have a fantastic weekend, dear!

Where did you get those dark mini chocolate chips? SO CUTE! <3

The last cereal I ate was gluten-free rice krispies last night. I love cereal. Your bowl looks too delish. I'd explode with excitement before I could get my spoon in. :)

Oatmeal with honey kix, diced apple, strawberry preserves and peanut butter on it. Last night for a treat! I love layering cereal and fruit on oats! Perfect!

Erica said... [reply]

Oh, that looks really good!

The last cereal I had was Mesa Sunrise Flakes, mixed with coconut yogurt :)

Aimee said... [reply]

I feel like a novice. My last was Honey Bunches of Oats with almond milk and cinnamon. Yours looks yum. Def want to branch out heh.

mariposai said... [reply]

Haha I especially like the second picture :-) I'm pretty boring with cereal and I usually have Branflakes for breakfast...

I love mixing different cereals with each other or with oats. I had a bowl of Newman's Own Wheat Flakes this morning, with rice milk, sunflower seed butter, and fresh blackberries and peach slices.

Sara said... [reply]

I'm definitely trying that out tomorrow...it looks so good! I like mixing different Kashi cereals together....I'm such a Kashi whore haha

greekyogurt said... [reply]

Wow it looks impressive.

Today I went to the super market to buy cereals. After half an hour of giggling with the cashiers and the guys at the veggie part, I bought some purple pasta, 3 types of jam, a pair of golden flip flops (!) and of course I forgot the cereals!

So until Monday the only cereals I ll see are at your pictures :)

Christina said... [reply]

The last cereal I ate was actually Wheaties. Very plain but I of course added tons of toppings :)

Kristy Sayer said... [reply]

Oooh yum, this looks delicious!
I actually just finished eating cereal - super crunchy honey flavoured wheat/oat/bran pillow things :P Kinda like puffins

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) said... [reply]

the last cereal i ate was ages ago..other than oats if that counts. those mini dark choc chips look fabulous and your comment last nite, thank you for the intelligent insights and musings and ponderings. comparing a certain amt of blog success to celebrity..all of a sudden strangers feel they know you and can stalk you...oh yes, indeed. It's such a surreal thing!

Anyway honey, enjoy the weekend!

Lindsay Cotter said... [reply]

wow, some seriously good cereal. I haven't had cereal in ages either. usually just oats. But we used to get nature's path pumpkin flax. So good!

Krista said... [reply]

That sounds AMAZING! Aside from my oats this morning, the last bowl I had was Kashi U...

Sandra - If it comes in pink said... [reply]

It sure looks yummy:) I don't really eat cereal, so it was a while ago.

Christina said... [reply]

YUM! best combo ever!! i need to try that banana cereal. the addition of dark choc chips was perfect!

eatmovelove said... [reply]

I love the simplicity of your posts. Keeping it real :)

LOVE the chocolate chips ! They are the BEST addition to cereals, oatmeal...etc.

Oh...and the last cereal I had was recently - um, Puffins!

shesarunner said... [reply]

Your breakfast looks so good! It kind of reminds me of this banana split oatmeal that I made once upon a time, except it used overnight oats, chocolate amazing grass, coconut, and no cereal! Okay, so it was pretty different, but it still had oats, banana, and chocolate...and um, that's a killer combo!

Other than oats, I've had lots of raw granola. I'm not sure about any other cereals..haven't had them in years. Most of them are not gluten free and once I tried a GF one and it was kind of funky...so I stick to grawnola (which is awesome). I kind of miss Nature's Path granola sometimes. That stuff is pretty addictive.

And thanks for your dehydrator thoughts love! <3 <3

Love the picture of the milk soaked cereal!!

I don't eat a lot of cereal, but one of my favorite things to eat is a banana - chilled in the freezer for about 10 minutes, then rolled in Kashi's Go Lean Crunch!

Hope you had a great Saturday!

Elaine @ Om Sweet Om said... [reply]

oh my, that's a gorgeous cereal bowl that you made! you get the soft, crunchy, chewy, and sweet all in one! yummm

Seriously, I adore your photos. I don't know whether it is the food or the pictures that I am in love with.

blueeyedheart said... [reply]

That second picture is priceless! ;)

For some reason, I cannot remember the last cereal I ate... that is weird.

<3 <3

Emily said... [reply]

looks like a delish breakfast!

i'm completely an oatmeal girl all the way. i had muesli this morning with oats, peaches, almond milk, yogurt, and walnuts..delish!

Megan D said... [reply]

WOW. I am bookmarking this just so I remember to make this for either brek or a snack! The last cereal I ate (other than oatmeal) was Kashi GoLean. The honey almond flax kind- love ittt!

Monet said... [reply]

This looks so yummy! I love the dark chocolate sprinkled on top. And I adore the little cornflake people...so cute! The last cereal I ate was Puffins (my absolute favorite!)

Jen said... [reply]

Oh my word!!! That cereal looks WONDERFUL!!! Just the other morning I had some oatmeal with chocolate pb spread and choc. protein powder mixed in! sooooo good!!!!!!!!!!

lizzyj1305 said... [reply]

hey gorgeous girlie!!
OH MY goodness your cereal creation looks amazing...definitely puts my bowl of Rice Chex to shame :(
Nature's Path cereals are the best, I have never had the one you used in this bowl, ill have to keep my eye out for it!
I am definitely inspired now to make a tasty bowl :)
I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
xoxo!

Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter said... [reply]

That looks insanely delicious! How did you do that picture of the cereal-people. I love it!

determinedtoshine said... [reply]

Cereal and oatmeal are amazing together. How did you make the little cereal people picture? That's the cutest thing I've seen!

Joanne said... [reply]

God I haven't had cereal in FOREVER. Last one had to be chocolate cheerios when I stayed over at my friend's house early this year. I miss cereal :(

erinsloves said... [reply]

You always have the best breakfasts!!! Ughh Im jealous (:
But as for cereal, I sometimes add the GF Peanut Butter Puffs to my yogurt, but I don't eat cereal that often. I do not like cereal in milk- only dry, weird??

Ashlei said... [reply]

I had some Bakery On Main granola yesterday or the day before. I love this post title :)

Michelle said... [reply]

I don't eat cereal very often, but I forgot how easy it was! Guess i should start again!

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish said... [reply]

It's been too long since I've had cereal! I'm on a eggs/cheese/veggies/potatoes-for-breakfast kick right now! I think the last bowl I had was filled with Puffins + banana + almond milk.

I love the chocolate chip addition! I would eat cereal EVERY morning if they were in the mix!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, Kelsey!

Ellen@FirednFabulous said... [reply]

Whoa whoa WHOA! This cereal is outta control. Totally just had a foodgasm. Seriously, it looks SO good! I really enjoyed my Cornflakes this am, but your bowl of yumminess totally puts it to shame!

Angela (the diet book junkie) said... [reply]

oh wow, that looks yum!!! the last cereal i had was about an hour ago. i always use a combo: 1/2 my bowl is high fibre stuff (similar to raisin bra)then 1/4 oats, and 1/4 muesli. i LOVE muesli but i know it's high in calories so i mix it with other shizo. (as you can see, i take my cereal very seriously. :)

Allie said... [reply]

Mmm I had Fruit Loops this morning :) It's my cheat day, don't judge me! Hehe!

Angela said... [reply]

I never thought about putting dark chocolate chips in my cereal, but that sounds so good. I'm going to try it. Today I had Total honey almond flax with blueberry yogurt and some peanut butter. Glad I stumbled across your blog. It is wonderful:)

missymiller said... [reply]

Ah. Kelsey. Now you're talking about spooning!
Could it be the gluten still making your hormones cheeky?

LOL. I love your little cereal people!
