WELCOME! We are so
glad you are here!

Most women don’t have supportive Christian women in their lives mentoring them.

We spur women on with the Word of God so that we can approach the Bible with confidence, share Jesus with grace, and speak chatter that matters in a noisy world.

“Let us consider how we may spur one another on…” Hebrews 10:24

The Breakfast Club, Part Two

I hope you all had a chance to toast up some muesli last week, because this week I am adding another cereal to the list. This is a little more involved than muesli but still super simple to make. Today we shall make bran flakes! I love raisin bran type cereals, so I figured nothing could beat a fresh flake toasted right from my own oven. And it's true. These toasted flakes are spectacular. So let's start this process, shall we? I discovered this recipe from Willow Bird Baking.

First, measure out your dry ingredients. These include wheat bran, whole wheat flour, almond flour, and a little bit of sugar, baking powder and salt. I found the wheat bran by all the other weird flours. It was a steal at just about $2 bucks a bag. I didn't buy almond flour. I used my food processor to mash up my own. You could probably use other nuts interchangeable with great results. I bet pecan would be amazing...


Then pour in your milk, water and vanilla while balancing a camera in one hand. Okay, you can skip the camera part.


Mix this all together to make a squishy, wet dough.bran3

Pat dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Top with plastic wrap, and roll into a very thin sheet. It will almost be transparent in some parts. The thinner you make it, the crunchier your flakes will be.


Remove plastic. Bake at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool. You have just made a giant bran flake, but we aren't done yet. The flake will be kind of leathery and bendy.


Tear your giant mama flake into little baby flakes. I did this by tearing it into three strips, stacking the strips, and tearing all three strips at once into pieces. Spread into a thin layer on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake at 275 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Allow to cool.


Pour into your bowl and enjoy! My favorite way is to mix the bran flakes with last week's muesli, top with fresh fruit and some whole milk. I can't think of a better way to start my morning. :)
