Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the water, oats, barley and cracked wheat. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 8 minutes (grains will not be tender). Transfer to a medium bowl; cool for 5 minutes. Stir in yogurt, milk, honey, apple pie spice and salt. Cover and chill for at least 12 hours or up to 3 days.

  • To serve, transfer cereal to a medium saucepan (see Tip). Cook and stir over low heat until heated through. Divide among serving bowls. Stir in apple and dried fruit. Sprinkle with almonds.


Tips: The cereal may also be served without heating. Just let it stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

To toast whole nuts or large pieces, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
