Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 300 F
  2. In a coffee grinder, grind flax and almonds separately.
  3. In oven, lightly toast the ground almonds on a cookie sheet for 5 – 7 minutes.  Let cool.
  4. Mix all ingredients and store in an airtight container.  To serve, put ½ cup of the mixture in a bowl and add ¾ of boiling water and a pinch of salt.  Stir briskly, and let the cereal sit for a few minutes before eating.

For flavor you can add a dash of stevia, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a few drops of backstrap molasses, raisins, dried cranberries, and/or shredded coconut.
