Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan

Image
  I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes.  I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour.  That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey.  I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing an

Cereal Tasting



It has been years since I have bought any Kellogg’s or General Mills cereal. I stayed in a hotel that had breakfast included they had these small cereal boxes so I thought I would try them. I notice the ingredients have changed since the past. The Kellogg’s ingredients are pretty simple now grains, sugar, some are using fruit and turmeric for colour some have artificial colour. There is a separate section on the ingredients for vitamins and minerals


The first cereal I tried was FruitLoops. It taste exactly how I remember crunchy, slightly sweet, with a slight fruity flavour. It’s really delicious. 

The next cereal I tried was Frosted Flakes. I was expecting it to be sweeter other than that it tasted exactly like I was expecting. It wasn’t insanely sweet but definitely had sweetness to it. The flakes had a nice crunch to them and it wasn’t insanely sweet but does have a sweetness to it. This wouldn’t be my first choice in cereal but I liked it. 

The next cereal was corn flakes. I would definitely use this for breading in the future. They are crispy and the flavour is mild. I am tasting without milk but I later added almond milk and a banana it was really good.

The next cereal was Cheerios. This is my least favourite so far. This is the first cereal that is not under Kellogg’s brand. It tasted really bland and the texture is dry. It also has the most ingredients. I could tell this was a different brand of cereal from the taste. When I added a sweetened plant milk it tasted much better. This cereal doesn’t taste how I remember it.




The final cereal is raisin bran. It is good the flakes are really crunchy even with milk they have a nice chew to them. The flakes have a very light sweetness and the ratio of raisins to flakes is perfect. Although this cereal is known for helping if you are constipated it actually tastes really good. 



Bonus cereal Oatmeal 

Do you consider oatmeal a cereal? I had a pack of plain oatmeal also from the hotel breakfast. I first tried it with hot water and it was very bland. I added dairy free eggnog to it and it was very good.
