Do I Have to Get That Brand?

In this recipe, I do mention the exact brands that I use. Of course, that is optional; whether you can't find that brand in your area or you have never heard of it, that isn't a problem. There are plenty of alternatives that you can use when looking for something similar to Post's Great Grains raisin, date, and pecan cereal. Look for something that has as many whole grains as possible and has the lowest grams of sugar per serving. For the stoneground flakes, try to find an organic ground wheat flake with minimal sugars.

"Cook Time"

Prep time: 2 min
Cook time: 2 min
Ready in: 4 min
Yields: One large serving or two small servings

  • 1 tablespoon organic chia seeds

  • 1/2 cup organic unsweetened almond milk


  1. Mix everything together into your favorite cereal bowl of choice. Pour in your ice-cold almond milk. Another delicious option is coconut milk.

Why Is This Healthy?

It can be difficult for vegetarians and vegans to get certain nutrients and minerals into their diets. Let's quickly break down why this cereal recipe is as healthy as it is delicious.

  • Whole Grains: Packed with protein, fiber, B vitamins, and vital nutrients such as iron, zinc, copper, and magnesium.
  • Oats (Great Grains cereal): High in dietary fiber and the minerals manganese, selenium, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc.
  • Dates: May assist in weight loss, regulating your digestive system, promoting heart health, helping with iron-deficiency, and promoting respiratory health.
  • Raisins: Are nutrient-dense, being that they are dried. They are rich in B vitamins, iron, and potassium.
  • Ground Flax: Extremely high in omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are good for a healthy heart. They also contain some levels of plant estrogen and antioxidants, as well as fiber.
  • Ground Cinnamon: Just a dash of this may help lower blood sugar levels, reduce risk of heart disease, reduce inflammation, and boost your metabolism.
  • Chia Seeds: High in fiber, protein, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, B vitamins, and potassium. In short, if you aren't eating chia seeds, what are you waiting for?

It is evident that this cereal is nutrient-rich, with abundant health benefits—and the best part is that it is super-delicious!
