Cereal can be such an easy quick food, it can also be a comforting food. Most cereals you find on the shelves today are loaded with food-dyes, pesticide sprayed grains and too much sugar. And while we prioritize protein at the start of our day sometimes moms just need a little snack that reminds us of our childhood. Or an easy breakfast for the kids.
Say it with me. We 👏🏼 don’t 👏🏼 have 👏🏼 to 👏🏼 be 👏🏼 perfect. Tried that. Didn’t work out for me.
I put together an alternative for you, a healthier chocolate puff cereal, to try that’s both fun to make and not full of all the junk. As always it’s gluten and dairy free!
Do you have a favorite cereal from your childhood? This could be a fun recipe series!
gluten free - vegan - yeast free - soy free - corn free
Can everyday be Sunday?
There's something slower, something sweeter, simpler and more divine about Sundays.
Thankful God gave us this day of rest and holiness and beauty. We slept in (thank you Grey!) and made our way slowly,but hungrily, into the kitchen where my little one helped make fluffy, warm and sweet ooey gooey vegan cinnamon rolls from scratch.
More laborious than most of my other recipes, but so worth it. I would definitely mark them down in the treat column because it's one of the very, very few recipes where I used cane sugar, but they are gluten free, soy free, yeast free, corn free and completely vegan!
The trick to making buttermilk cinnamon rolls without the buttermilk? Lemon juice in coconut or almond cream! A trick I'm SO glad I learned early on. Have a blessed and happy Sunday with those you love.

So I did a thing.
And it was amazing.
My son asked for donuts last weekend and I awoke to find I was out of our gluten free 1 to 1 flour. What's a mom to do?!
I grabbed a bag of our gluten free pancake and waffle mix and decided to sub it for my normal donut recipe flour. Having just returned from his first camping trip, with a newfound love of S'Mores, I tossed a few mini marshmallows on top and some crumbled GF graham crackers.
He. Ate. It. Up. Literally. And I have to say, I love my original donut recipe, but the pancake mix added a subtle sweetness and moist, chewy, cakey consistency that made these highly addictive and disappear before the weekend was over.
It's been a minute since I've posted and I though I'm sorry for being MIA for a little while, it was nice to focus on family time for the holidays
I've felt extremely under the weather for a couple of weeks, so work has been hard to get through and we've hosted friends and family for the past three weeks and I've literally been sleeping around twelve hours a night to recoup.
Christmas was beautiful and was spent surrounded by Mr. Charming's and I entire family, celebrating our Saviors birth and time together. We also gave some beautiful gifts and received some beautiful gifts and enjoyed PLENTY of good, decadent holiday food. Paleo for the most part, I did indulge in some grain and sugary treats that I am now looking to detox.
Enter oats. Although not Paleo, I've learned that my body does well with gluten-free oats to help aid my digestion.
Having fallen in love with SoyNutButter's Chocolate that I used for my Double Chocolate
1 C. Gluten-Free Oats
1/4 C. Dairy-Free Milk (I used coconut)
1/4 C. SoyNut Butter (I used the unsweetened)
Layer oats, SoyNut Butter and Milk in Mason Jar, place in refridgerator overnight.
In the morning, top with sliced banana and strawberry. Enjoy.
What are your favorite ways to make overnight oats? These are also a great treat to pack up and take post-Christmas shopping. Throw in a cooler bag with spoons, a thermos of coffee and extra fruit for a complete breakfast.
For more information on SoyNutButter, the sponsor of this post, see all of their products here. I am a big fan of their line and it's authentic nutty taste. And all of their soy in Non-GMO!
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. For more of my story you can click here.
All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
