Boost Flavor And Nutrition With Hot Cereal

Hot cereal from The Soulfull Project

The no-bake oatmeal ball recipes in this article make for nutritious snacks you’ll feel comfortable eating or serving to your family any time.

But if you’re looking for a way to pack even more nutrition into your snack food without making it taste like cardboard, we’ve got the solution for you.

Substitute hot cereal instead of oatmeal and you’ll enjoy even more vitamins, minerals, and nutrients than you thought possible in something that tastes so good!

When you use hot cereal as one of the ingredients in your no-bake oatmeal balls, you get all the benefits of a wide variety of grains, including:

  • Rye
  • Barley
  • Oats
  • Quinoa
  • Chia
  • Flax

That makes good nutritional sense.

And by varying the flavor of the hot cereal you use — such as The Soulfull Project’s Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry Almond, Brown Sugar Pecan, Toasted Coconut, or Cinnamon Spice — you can whip up a batch of no-bake oatmeal balls that even the pickiest eater among you will love in no time flat.

Plus, for every serving you purchase, The Soulfull Project will donate a serving of our hot cereal to a food bank in your area.

With your help, we can make the world a better place, one serving at a time!

If you’re looking for even more healthy, food-allergy-friendly snacks, try Don’t Go Nuts’ many flavors of soy spreads (peanut-free peanut butter) and organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free chewy granola bars. They’re the best!
