Fruity Red Lentil Hot Breakfast Cereal

Are you looking for a gluten free breakfast idea; an allergy friendly option for breakfast? Do you have a penchant for eating healthy? Maybe you like to skip grains, even gluten free ones, altogether. Or maybe you are a foodie who likes to try new things. Well, this hot breakfast cereal is for you.

Blog-Lentil Breakfast

Don’t be scared off by the use the lentils (just make sure to use the red ones). It’s a wonderful way to make a grain free/gluten free hot breakfast cereal that is also high in protein. It is also dairy, egg, peanut, soy, sesame and tree nut free! What is even better is that there is NO added sugar or sweetener. Just chuck full of fruit. BONUS! This is truly a healthy breakfast option. With all these “foods” missing you would think this is missing in taste! Absolutely NOT!

I usually make this the night before and reheat it in the morning for breakfast. Let me know how you like it! Enjoy!

I got the idea for this recipe and adapted it from here.
