A Different Sorta Cereal

She couldn't possibly be making something you ingest with this combination of ingredients, can she? C' know that was the first thing you were thinking when you saw this combination in that first photo. Bear with me....i promise it's good!!

When my parents came back from Brasil, my mom bought back lots of goodies from the grocers there to re-inact treats here.

One thing she brought was a bag of corn flakes--not like the USA kinda Kellogg's corn flake, but more like "mashed potato flakes from a box" kinda corn flake. While staying with friends there, they learned a recipe for a cereal that included these Brasilian corn flakes, Brasilian style brown sugar (which Mom says doesn't taste as sweet as our sugar), and peanuts used as an add in to something that looked like runny yoghurt (maybe kefir?)

Mom used our style of yoghurt, thinned with milk, and topped with this cereal. I don't know what she misses most from her trip: this cereal or Brasilian cheese bread.

Now, it's all gone.

And there are two other problems:

1. My daughter really liked it.
2. You can't get the type of corn flakes here.

Enter (me):
Faster than a whirling food processer,
able to make tasty things in a single pot...
it's Anthony Bourdain, no!
it's Emeril LaGasse, nein!
It's, it's....
Experiment Girl!
To the rescue.

In a food processor of some sort, combine (in this order, so you don't end up with chunky peanut buttery goo--chunks being that of corn flake particles):

1.5 cups of US corn flakes, 1/2 cup peanuts, and 1TBSP +1 tsp of Sucanat

Whirrrr the devil out of it until it looks like this:

Use 1/2 cup of this crumbly mixture on top of 1 cup of yoghurt, and you have a yummy breakfast of healthy mush (a no cook porridge of sorts,really) of a different kind that tastes just like you are eating a bowl full of straight peanut butter!

Only this,
won't leave you asking your family the question, "Do my thighs look fatter to you?"
