My taste buds did not immediately adapt with love to Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grains Cereal, but how can I refuse it? This battle of good versus evil caused me to blow my oven top.
It’s flourless with sprouted grains. Organic. A complete protein. What’s not to like?
Look at this lovely list of ingredients:
Organic sprouted whole grain wheat, filtered water, organic raisins, organic malted barley, organic sprouted whole grain barley, organic sprouted whole grain millet, organic sprouted whole grain organic
sprouted whole grain lentils, organic sprouted whole grain soybeans, organic sprouted whole grain spelt, sea salt, organic cinnamon.
“Ezekiel scared the hell out of me when I opened the box. It’s like
bread crumbs that were laser enlarged then mixed with raisins.”
Don’t confuse its appearance with a Raisin Bran knockoff. I nipped at a piece. Eh, crunchy and plain. So I took the advice on the box and mixed with warm milk to create the illusion of a bowl of “normal” oats. This scary-ugly food is actually very good. It’s got a fibrous, oaty, grainy taste, and even though I couldn’t detect the cinnamon, the raisins are a nice sweet touch. You can always add honey or agave to boost the flavor.
It’s called Ezekiel 4:9 for a very good reason. Besides that, I just found a great, new breakfast option when inhaling Greek yogurt and granola for the 50th day in a row starts to bore.
I will eat this for health. Not taste bud entertainment. That’s what cheesecake is for.
