Morning Warmer Hot Cereal Mix


Most days I'm a dried-fruit-and-granola-with-yogurt guy, but sometimes I need a hot, filling bowl of oatmeal. Our gray winter, and especially these last few chilly, dark days, have had me in the kitchen fine-tuning a hot cereal mix.


Mix together:

  • 3 c. oats
  • 1 c. raisins
  • 1 c. cherries
  • 1/2 c. wheat germ
  • 1/2 c. wheat bran
  • 1/4 c. flax meal
  • 1/8 c. flax seeds
  • 1/2 c. pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 c. sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 c. nuts (cashews, almonds, walnuts, etc.)

At breakfast, scoop out 1/3 c. – 1/2 c. and mix with 1/3-1/2 c. water. Microwave 1 minute, 15 seconds. Add sweetener of your choice — honey or maple syrup are two of my favorites.

  1. Hi,
    I live in Eugene, I love foods, and I blog, too! So much in common ^_^
    Although I’m personally staying away from gluten (I suspect I have some food allergies and my naturopath doc is testing me now), this sounds quite nice.
    And keep up the good work!
