  • I recently found Coco wheats in a Walmart store in my area. I usually make one serving with 3 tlbs of coco wheats and 2/3 cup of water. I cook in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. I then add 1 tbl of reduced fat peanut butter. They are really good this way! - 3/26/10

  • This is from my hubby - no great masterpiece that will rock the culinary world but our family loves them! The only thing "extra" is adding the vanilla which makes it so good. - 2/27/10
