Morning Bliss Cereal



Morning Bliss Cereal
I found this wonderful recipe while working for an amazing preschool – Stepping Stones. Terri @ http://yogalilaville.blogspot.com/ – who managed the program made this for us almost every morning. It is amazingly filling and very healthy for you. It lends itself to all kinds of flavor combinations. I have added a few – not so healthy things - sorry Terri. I usually buy these things in bulk – so here is an approx mix ratio. These are all whole grains and you can get them at most health food stores and some grocery stores.
Mix these together 1/4 cup of each of these grains…… rolled oats, quinoa, flax seed, wheat berries & barley = 1 ¼ cups total
In a large pot add 3 ½ cups of water , ¼ cup raw or reg. sugar, 2 TBSP. cinnamon and a ½ cup of raisins or other fruit (dried fruits or apples work well here). Set to boil then turn to med low so it simmers. It will need about an hour or so until the grains are soft but not mushy. You can store this in the fridge for several days. It reheats beautifully!
Terri topped this with flax seed oil ( I don’t – upsets my stomach) & brewers yeast. You can add walnuts, yogurt, fresh fruit, honey, milk, soy milk…. almost anything. I’m very fond of yogurt on mine – or blueberries!!! Enjoy….Sarah
