Sometimes breakfast needs to be changed up or it changes because of a need. This morning we were out of our gluten free oats and so our “granola” cereal option was out. So this Corn-Free Mama got creative and was inspired by a meal the Mini-Foodies and I shared with dear friends at Green Grub in Turlock, CA. The cafe’s version used fortified almond milk (we were not yet reactive to the vitamins) and a granola. My version uses a protein filled smoothie (for a vegan option, omit collagen) and a seed & but crumble inspired by my Cashew Ginger Pie Crust that tastes more like peanut butter, but is legume free.

Blend all ingredients in Blendtec until smooth and fluffy. You may need to adjust amounts or add water depending on how cold the purée is.
