Another 100% HEALTHY hot cereal

Now that we know a lot of those "healthy" hot cereals out there are a bit less than "healthy", we need more choices for breakfast. Remember my dear sweet friend, the Nine-Grain Cereal...well this fabulously nutritious cereal is very easy to make and yummy, too. My children literally devoured it and loved every bite of it. You can see the many types of grains in this picture. The nine grains are: red wheat, white wheat, rye, barley, steel-cut oats, corn, millet, flaxseed and buckwheat. You can't beat that combination for a whole-grain start to your morning!!! It is prepared in exactly the same manner as the Hot, Creamy Ground Wheat Cereal.

Hot, Creamy Ground Nine-Grain Cereal

1 C coarsely ground nine-grain cereal flour

4 C water

Pinch of salt

Grind 1 C wheat in a coffee grinder (so it is coarser) on one of the coarsest settings until evenly ground. Mix one cup of ground wheat flour and 2 ½ C water in a pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 7-10 minutes, stirring constantly and adding 1/2 C water every couple of minutes. Makes 5 C of creamy cereal.
