This mixed-grain breakfast recipe uses steel-cut oats, barley and cracked wheat. For best color and texture, add the chopped apple and dried fruit just before serving the cereal.
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.
