Hot cereal mixes are convenient and nutritious, but usually too sweet for my liking. Try making your own mixes flavored with dried fruit.
Yield: 14 servings.
- 1 cup barley flakes
- 1 cup whole-wheat flakes
- 1 cup quinoa flakes
- 1-1/2 cups quick rolled oats
- 1/4 cup oat bran
- 1 tablespoon dried fruit of choice
- 1 tablespoon nuts of choice
1. Mix all ingredients together. Place 1/4 cup mixture each into 14 zip-close bags or 1/2-pint canning jars.
2. To prepare, combine mixture with 1/3 cup boiling water. Cover, and let sit 2 to 3 minutes. Stir, and add sugar or honey to taste.
- Peach Almond Maple: Add 1 tablespoon snipped dried peaches, 1 tablespoon slivered almonds, and 1/4 teaspoon maple sugar to each mix.
- Apple Cinnamon Walnut: Add 1 tablespoon chopped dried apples, 1 tablespoon walnut pieces, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon to each mix.
- Blueberry Pecan: Add 1 tablespoon dried blueberries, 1 tablespoon chopped pecans, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or dried lemon zest to each mix.
