Flax Meal Peanut Butter Cereal

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by Elisa72

I found this recipe at http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/breakfast1/r/flaxpdcereal.htm. It's delicious plain or with maple syrup. Very simple to make for a quick nutritious morning meal! Edited to add: After having this as my breakfast for a few days, I've noticed that I get hungry less throughout the day AND my snack cravings have decreased substantially. I'm not ready to call it any kind of diet miracle, but at least in the short term it appears that it may help my dieting efforts considerably. I'm going to try replacing the peanut butter with other types of flavorings and will note those as I go along. EDITED AGAIN: A little research confirms that flax in any form is a natural appetite suppressant. Yay!! I've tried this with only 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and enjoy it just as much, and with fewer calories and fat.

I added raw almond butter instead of peanut butter, it could have used a little sweetner, but I found it very easy and filling.
