Multi grain breakfast cereal !

These were three of the grains I used in the cereal. I forgot to put flax in the the picture. The cool thing is there are so many nutritional benefits to each of these grains. They make a great combination. You can start out the morning with a great breakfast, so you will have energy for the day.
Sorry the lighting was bad on this pictures. It tasted soo good. I loved the combination of everything. I felt very satisfied. :)

4 C. Water
2/3 C. Oatmeal (Old Fashioned)
1/3 C. Buckwheat
1/3 C. Quinoa
1/4 C. Ground Flax Seed
2 tsp. Cinnamon
4 Tbsp. Xagave
1 C. Blueberries any kind of berries would be yummy, or rasins!
8 T. Unsweetened coconut flakes

Served about 4 depending on serving size.
You have a couple of options of cooking it.
1. Cook on the stove. Bring to a boil and then turn to low heat till softens.
2. Put in crock pot on low before you go to bed.
3. I cooked it in my pressure cooker. I set the timer for 7 minutes. When the timer went off I let it sit for 5 min.

Cook all the grains and water together. Then afterwards add the cinnamon. I just drizzled on the xagave in each bowl separately. Then put the blueberries and coconut on top of each bowl depending on preference of how much you want. You can pour a little milk over the top. :) It was wonderful!

* You can read on the side bar the nutritional benefits of these grains. :)


  1. Looks delicious! I need to get a pressure cooker.

  2. I Love my pressure cooker. I had no idea how much I would use it. It is well worth the money!
