This warming whole-grain hot cereal recipe pairs cooked wheat berries with rolled oats, fruit and nuts for a filling fiber-rich breakfast. Using a microwave makes preparation speedy, especially if you’ve thawed frozen cooked wheat berries overnight in the refrigerator.

Very delicious! I just diced some apples and strawberries and I have to say it tastes pretty darn good! It fills me up so fast!


This is my new favorite breakfast! I take 5 minutes to make one portion of it in the morning, omitting the sugar as the milk and raisins make it sweet enough for me. I have used cooked whole grain hulled barley at times (instead of the wheatberries) as hulled barley exceeds wheatberries in fiber content and overall nutrition. Keeps me full longer and until lunch which is great! This is a super yummy way to start the day and in the evenings when I go to bed, I'm already salivating about my next day breakfast!


amazing! i used spenda instead of brown sugar and apricots instead of raisins. really good!

I have made this several times for my family and they love it. I even made it for a group of friends when staying at a beach rental for the weekend. Everyone had rave reviews... even the husbands!
