Recipe – DIY Holy Crap



There is a certain satisfaction when cooking, baking or making your own concoction of something pre-packaged / store bought. Sometimes it is out of sheer laziness, sometimes it’s a fear from failure that I will either burn, parch, over-bake and be left with a mess. Sometimes, “The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.” – Julia Child.



I began eating Holy Crap for breakfast with my oatmeal the past while because I found that I was left satiated a lot longer with all the wonderful benefits of fibre. But the feeling of paying $10.99 on a good day or $13.99 regularly left my wallet and my stomach little empty.


One day it dawned on me while I was walking through the bulk section of my local supermarket that I should make my own Holy Crap. Maybe I will call it Holy Shit. While some items are not available via bulk, they were at Costco and a local organic foods store.






I like to drink Avalon milk because it taste creamier and I absolutely love the fact they use glass milk bottles. Reuse them as a water jug, cereal / bulk containers! Save them for your flowers. The industrial look is priceless.


I don’t have a particular recipe when I made my Holy Shit. But if you must 1 cup of each and a tablespoon of cinnamon for taste. I just funnelled everything in layers like you would for decorative sand jar. In the end give it a good shake before every meal.

As you can see from the approximate breakdown, there is significant savings to be made. A package of Holy Crap lasts me approximate 8 days with two spoons / day.
