A hot morning breakfast loaded with whole grains and fruit, with the added crunch of toasted nuts. I like to make mine on Sundays and warm some in the microwave on weekday mornings for a quick hot nutritious breakfast.

I used cracked wheat berries, 1 C. shredded apple in place of the dried and used 3 T. maple syrup + 1 T. honey in place of sugar. The texture is excellent, crunchy and chewy as expected. The techniques used to cook the grains are spot-on, it came out perfect. I grated a little bit of nutmeg into mine. I will be making this again! Read More

This was fantastic. I replaced the cup of oats with a cup of cooked hulled barley. Replaced the nuts with mixed roasted nuts. Also cut the sugar in half. Cut up a banana instead of the dried apples. Definitely making this again. Read More
