Oat Groats with Amaranth and Qunioa Cereal

I love this time of year. We still are enjoying great weather. I just love taking deep breaths and soaking it all in. It energizes me. It is a nice time of year to be eating hot cereal. Get your family started on the right foot.  I have oat groats. I decided to eat them whole today instead of making them into flakes. It was a nice morning breakfast with a lot of texture in it. It is a great way to get you started on the right foot. I added fresh peaches. nutmeg, and apple spice seasoning and a bit of honey too. Yum! I love the fresh peaches this time of year. I rushed it today but next time I am going to start soaking it the night before.

1/4 C Amaranth
1/4 C Qunioa

2 C water or milk
