Buckwheat, Oatmeal and Amaranth Hot Cereal

I have enjoyed this mixture as hot cereal a couple times. Lauri suggested that she puts coconut oil in her hot cereal. She said it gives and extra creamy texture, and I agree. I really like what the coconut oil adds to the cereal. I also like the extra bonus, the oil it helps it to not boil over. :) The combination of all the grains is wonderful. Think of all the nutrition you are starting your day off with. All combined in just one bowl. =)

3 C hot water
2/3 C old fashioned oatmeal
1/3 C amaranth
1/3 C buckwheat
1 1/2 T coconut oil
*I have used quinoa as one of the grains too.
sweeten to your preference
top with cut up fruit, nuts, coconut etc...


1. Put a medium saucepan on the stove. Then pour in all the ingredients. (It adds to the nutrition to let the grain soak for 15 min or more. It is not necessary though.) Then turn to medium heat, and cover with a lid. Stir occasionally. Let cook until all the water is absorbed and, completely softened.

2. Pour into bowl, add sweetener, and desired topping. Have a great weekend!
