Is your morning cereal starting to become a bit bland? Are you bored of eating the same thing every morning?

A protein cereal topper is a great way of not only getting more protein in your diet and keeping you feeling fuller for longer – stopping the mid-morning snacking! – but it is a healthy way of adding another texture and flavour to your cereal bowl.

You can use this recipe to top your morning cereal, yoghurt or even as a healthy protein snack on its own.

 

Protein Cereal Topping Ingredients

100g coconut flakes

30g desiccated coconut

1 scoop Whey Protein Classic Vanilla

2tsp grounded ginger

¼ cup cacao powder

¼ cup natural sweetener

30g Nutristrength coconut oil, melted

50g oats

1 tbsp almond butter

2 tbsp water

 

Protein Cereal Toppings Method

  1. Place the coconut flakes and desiccated coconut in a large skillet. Cook over a low-medium heat, stirring frequently, until the flakes are golden brown.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the cacao powder and melted coconut oil until smooth.
  3. Then add the natural sweetener, protein powder, almond butter and ginger to the chocolate mixture and combine well.
  4. Fold the toasted coconuts into the chocolate mixture and add the oats and water, stirring until everything is coated with chocolate.
  5. Spread the mixture on the baking sheet and gently push it down using a spatula. This is what holds the cluster together once cooled.
  6. Allow to set in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  7. Remove from the freezer and break into small bitesize pieces. Enjoy!

Easy to make, without the need for an oven!
