Quinoa & Chia Oatmeal Mix
To make the hot cereal dry mix: Combine oats, wheat and/or barley flakes, quinoa, dried fruit, seeds, cinnamon and salt in an airtight container.Advertisement
To make 1 serving of hot cereal: Combine 1/3 cup Quinoa & Chia Oatmeal Mix with 1 1/4 cups water (or milk) in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, partially cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 12 to 15 minutes. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir in a sweetener of your choice and top with nuts and/or more dried fruit, if desired. Makes 1 cup.
To make ahead: Store airtight for up to 1 month.
Tips: Rolled barley and wheat flakes are steamed, dried and rolled-flat whole grains. They can be cooked to make a hot cereal and used in place of rolled oats in most recipes. They're usually near other whole-grain cereals.
