This is a whole grain blend of 8 gluten free grains and seeds which are ground in a coffee grinder and cooked. Since going gluten and casein free I have been unable to find any hot breakfast cereals that we enjoy. So I created this one and the whole family loves it. Serve with brown sugar, agave nectar, honey or fruit.

I didn't bother to grind this up. I just put all the ingredients in a container and shook it up. Then I used 1/3 cup of cereal mix to 1 cup of water. My DD left her cinnamon flavored flax with me, and that made if smell really good as it heated up! Delicious! Read More

It's an interesting blend of grains but oatmeal and grits have always been gluten-free. Read More

Wonderful recipe! I've been making changes to our diet as far as going organic and also as gluten free as possible. This was a keeper and with the diet I'm on, this was perfect; healthy and filling. I even served with fresh berries for a treat. Thank you for sharing. Read More

This is so good! I didn't have any amaranth the first time I made it, so I just omitted it and it was good that way too. It has become a staple in our house. It's really good if you add a tablespoon or so of cocoa powder per cup of cereal--especially if you sweeten it with maple syrup. Reminds me of Cocoa Wheats, only healthier. Read More

The ingredients sounds very healthy. I will try it. I might add to it some cinnemon and butter for more flavor. Also I wonder if it can be used as a substitute for flour to make pancake or cookies. You probably need to add baking powder since the ingredients are gluten free. Read More

Awesome I didn't have the rice or amaranth but I did add some Kamut flakes Spelt kernels and sunflower seeds. I didn't grind either love the texture and chewiness of all the grains. Husband LOVED it!! You can mix this up and have many variations. We sweeten with Stevia as it is a natural sweetener. THANK YOU!! Read More

Excellent recipe! However, I've noticed that some of these ingredients, like rice and the ones I buy in bulk, should probably be rinsed before cooking. But they have to be dried before grinding. In the future I will look for no-rinse-required ingredients; for now maybe rinse then dry in a warm oven. Read More

Great recipe and inspiration! Make it your own with what you have on hand! We used white rice (will use brown next time) 1/2 c quinoa 1/4 c chia seeds 1/4 c. raw walnuts 1/4 c. raw sunflower seeds 3/4 c spelt flakes 1/4 c ground flax seed and 1/2 c steel cut oats for example (we don't do corn or wheat in our house but no matter!). We blend all our grains in the blender then carefully use the handle end of a wooden spoon to stir always keeping the wood on the glass sides of the blender. This way the nuts and grains keep moving not gummed up in the bottom. Add in the end: cranberries raisens cranberry/orange relish from Christmas creamed honey cinnamon banana jam/preserves options are endless! My two- and four-year-olds ate it up! A super welcome change to oatmeal according to them. I think you could probably soak all in water with a teaspoon or so of vinegar and salt 24 hours if you prefer that method of "cooking." Thank you!

This was really good. I used teff instead of corn meal and I didn't add sesame seeds. My kids said it tasted just like oatmeal. Read More

Good gluten free cereal. I used a coffee grinder to grind up the flax seed too. The blend takes more time to fully cook than stated. When I remember, I make it the night before and reheat with soy milk in the morning. Add some brown suger and the kids love it! Read More
