Homemade Grain Cereal


I love cereal. It’s a quick and easy meal for busy mornings. Check below for the recipes and pics.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tablespoons Millet
  • 2 tablespoons Quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon Amaranth
  • 1/4 Barley
  • Organic oats (Enough to sprinkle on a thin layer Parchment paper)
  • 1 tablespoon Flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Ground Flax + 3 tablespoons of water
  • 1 /2 tablespoon Chia
  • 1 /4 cup Brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons Vanilla
  • 2-3 tablespoons Honey
  • 1/2 cup Almond pieces
  • to taste Raisin
  • to taste Pumpkin seeds
  • to taste allspiceMaterials:
  • 2 small pot
  • 1 medium mixing bowls
  • Cooking spoon
  • Measuring spoons and cups
  • Regular size bowl
  • Baking sheet
  • Scraping scraper
  • Parchment paperProcess:
  1. Mix ground flax and water in the bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cook Amaranth, Millet, and Quinoa until completely cooked. It should have a similar look as thick porridge instead of the regular fluffy grainy look. Takes approximately 20 -30 minutes on medium.)
  3. At the same time cook the brown rice in a separate pot by package instructions.
  4. By now the flax mixture should have thickened. Add flax seeds, chia, vanilla, honey and allspice. Once honey is dissolved. Set aside until grains finish cooking. Give this no less that 5 minutes to thicken.
  5. In mixing bowl mix together grain mix, rice, barley, pumpkin seeds and almonds. Add raisins. Add flax mixture till everything is coated.
  6. Sprinkle oats of the parchment lined baking sheet. Spread grain mixture as thin as you can manage.
  7. Bake on250º F for 1 – 2 hours
    1. Bake time depends on how dry you want it. Baking for 2 hours dries the rice almost completely and it does not dehydrate well. Baking for 1 hour  will give you a softer product. I felt 1 and 1/2 hours  would have given me the perfect texture.

Note sub maple syrup for honey for vegan cereal.
