This warming whole-grain porridge 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.

Here's an easy way to have your wheat berries ready to use in the morning: Place 1 cup clean wheat berries, 1/2 tsp. salt and 2 cups boiling water in a thermos. Cap tightly and let set overnight (about 8-10 hours) It will be softened and ready to use.

Tasty and filling

To Anonymous, Re: sugar grams

Sugars are carbohydrates, so the sugar grams are included in the carbohydrates. All carbs turn to sugar (glucose) in the body so it's pointless to count sugars separately, especially considering that most of the sugar in this recipe is natural (from milk and fruit). You could simply omit the brown sugar and then you have 0g of added sugars in this recipe.

Delicious and filling

I used muesli which already has raisins (as well as other dried fruits), oats and nuts. Popped it in the oven with the cooked wheat berries with milk for about 4 minutes. So delicious and filling. I forgot the sugar and didn't even notice, I don't think it's needed with the raisins already in there. I love using oat groats instead of flakes for my morning oatmeal and now, I can add wheat berry to that too. Really hearty and filling. Kept me going all day!

I took 1/3 cup of cooked WB and 1/3 cup cooked instant oatmeal, mixed in raisins and cinnamon, hot in microwave, added milk after. Could add peach or pear instead of raisins. This was very filling and low cal, high fiber. I cooked 2 batches so I some the next day.
