Gluten-Free Hot Breakfast Cereal

Gluten-Free Hot Breakfast Cereal

Kim 0

"This is a whole grain blend of 8 gluten free grains and seeds which are ground in a coffee grinder and cooked. Since going gluten and casein free I have been unable to find any hot breakfast cereals that we enjoy. So I created this one and the whole family loves it. Serve with brown sugar, agave nectar, honey or fruit."

I didn't bother to grind this up. I just put all the ingredients in a container and shook it up. Then I used 1/3 cup of cereal mix to 1 cup of water. My DD left her cinnamon flavored flax wi...

It's an interesting blend of grains, but oatmeal and grits have always been gluten-free.

Wonderful recipe! I've been making changes to our diet as far as going organic and also as gluten free as possible. This was a keeper and with the diet I'm on, this was perfect; healthy and fi...

This is so good! I didn't have any amaranth the first time I made it, so I just omitted it and it was good that way too. It has become a staple in our house. It's really good if you add a tab...

The ingredients sounds very healthy. I will try it. I might add to it some cinnemon and butter for more flavor. Also, I wonder if it can be used as a substitute for flour to make pancake or cook...

Awesome, I didn't have the rice or amaranth but I did add some Kamut flakes, Spelt kernels and sunflower seeds. I didn't grind either, love the texture and chewiness of all the grains. Husband...

Excellent recipe! However, I've noticed that some of these ingredients, like rice and the ones I buy in bulk, should probably be rinsed before cooking. But they have to be dried before grinding...

Great recipe, and inspiration! Make it your own with what you have on hand! We used white rice (will use brown next time), 1/2 c quinoa, 1/4 c chia seeds, 1/4 c. raw walnuts, 1/4 c. raw sunflo...

This was really good. I used teff instead of corn meal and I didn't add sesame seeds. My kids said it tasted just like oatmeal.

Good gluten free cereal. I used a coffee grinder to grind up the flax seed too. The blend takes more time to fully cook than stated. When I remember, I make it the night before and reheat with s...
