Here is another healthy cereal recipe using coconut flakes and sunflower seeds!

- Can sub stevia for a sugar-free version. This is the best tasting stevia I have found.
Otto’s Cassava Flour
This is my most recent find and it is incredible! Most gluten free flours are expensive, and cannot be used to replace regular flour 1:1. You usually have to combine a bunch of different flours to create a good texture- well not anymore!
Cassava (also known as Yuca) is a root vegetable. Cassava is a staple food for half a billion people across Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
Yuca is an excellent source of non-inflammatory carbohydrate filled with fiber and resistance starch which feeds the good bacteria in your intestines.
Otto’s Cassava Flour is an amazing, grain-free replacement for wheat flour and can be used as a 1:1 substitute in countless recipes. I only use this brand because:
- There are no fillers. Only 100% Yuca (Cassava) and water are used to create this single-ingredient wonder.
- Foods made with Otto’s Cassava Flour do not have that familiar dry or “alternative flour” taste or texture that often comes with gluten-free flours.
- Otto’s Cassava Flour is the very highest quality cassava flour available. Other cassava flours are hand peeled and sun dried. That sounds romantic, but it can produce undesirable results. As the cassava dries in the sun it ferments and takes on a sour, musty smell and taste. If it happens to rain, it must sit longer, allowing opportunity for mold to grow.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Add ingredients into a mixing bowl- begin to stir and mix with a spatuala
- Continue until the dough is just coming together- it will look crumby but will hold together when you form it.
- Start to take some batter and roll into little balls or roll into a big ball flatten with rolling pin or hands. Cut into squares or any shape you would like.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Let cool and Enjoy!
