Where does it give directions on cooking the wheat berries? I read it several times over. Ingredients...wheat berries see directions for cooking....then in directions it has you both ways microwave or stove top adding COOKED WHEAT BERRIES....so how long do they cook and what method is best? How much liquid do you use to cook the wheat berries before you add them to the oat and fruit mix?

I buy the large-size Oatmeal box and add raisins, dried cranberries/apricots, nuts, coconut and a little salt to the whole container and mix. Each morning, I scoop out the oatmeal mixture and put in a cereal bowl, add milk and w/i five minutes have a warm, healthy breakfast that is delicious. I do not add sugar because of the sweetness of the added items. Anything dried can be added.

I love this recipe. I have made it many times. It's easy to keep the wheat berries frozen or on hand in the fridge, then whip up this hearty breakfast using whatever fruits, dried, fresh or frozen, that I have on hand.

Delicious! As good as steel-cut oatmeal. It's nice to have an alternative to processed cold cereals for my 15-month-old.

This is very similar to my usual morning oatmeal, so of course I liked it! The wheat berries give it a nice chewy texture. I downsized the portion and added some fruit on top.
