Ingredients

    Qunioa, dry, 0.25 cup
    Steel Cut Oats, dry, 0.25 cup
    Bob's Red Mill Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal, 1 Tbsp
    Wheat Germ 1 Tbsp
    Brown Sugar, 1 Tbsp packed
    Cinnamon, ground, 1 Tbsp
    Almonds, 6 almond, (slivered, sliced, or chopped)
    Cranberries, dried, sweetened (craisins), about 1 Tbsp
    Great Value Frozen Mixed Berries, 0.5 cup
    Molasses, blackstrap, 1 Tbsp

    * Optional, not counted in nutritional data:
    Your choice of milk to pour on top
    Greek yogurt blended with cooled cereal (i.e. second serving, following day) to make it ultra high protein!

Tips

Vary the fruits, nuts, milks - even the grains - to create your own "special blend". I sometimes use barley or brown rice for one of the grains, or sometimes make mega batches, with several different varieties of grain. Variety dried fruit also creates interesting flavor options, so experiment at will! :o)


Directions

Stir quinoa and oats into 1 cup boiling water. Reduce heat and slow simmer for 15 min. or so, at which time add the remaining ingredients and give a final stir. (You might also consider adding a touch of vanilla or other flavoring at this point.)
