Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

10-Grain Power Breakfast

8 WWPP Posted by 2 years ago 2 Comments

I ran out of eggs this weekend and because of a nasty ice storm, I didn’t make it to the store for my typical weekly shopping trip. The kids are also off school — AGAIN — but that’s another story.

After the gym and getting the kids all settled in their respective new snow routines, I was ready for breakfast but with no eggs in the house I had to reach for my new backup: Bob’s Red Mill 10-Grain Hot Cereal

Bob's Red Nill 10-Grain Cereal

I don’t work with Bob’s but they do send me sample products from time to time and this was in their latest mailing.

I wasn’t too impressed when I opened the box as I’m not a big cereal girl but the first time I made it I was pleasantly surprised. The mixture of grains makes an interesting taste and the texture is very reminiscent of Farina, something I ate a lot as a child.

10-Grain Power BreakfastThe first time I made this I used a teaspoon of sugar for sweetness but this morning I decided on a half a banana, which added even more flavor. The banana also added bulk. Speaking of, a serving of this dry doesn’t look like much but cooked it really puffs up. Add some fruit and it’s quite a large, satisfying breakfast. I really didn’t expect to like this as much as I did!

Here’s what I did…

  • 1/4 Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain Hot Cereal (42g)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp almond butter (14g)
  • 1/2 banana, mashed (50g)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened frozen blueberries (70g)
  • Dash of cinnamon

Heat the cereal, water and salt in a small pot over medium-high heat. Stir until it starts to boil. Add the almond butter and stir to melt it in.

Continue to boil for about 5 minutes until it thickens to your liking.

Remove from heat mix in the mashed banana.  Add the frozen blueberries which will cool the cereal down while they defrost.

Top with a dash of cinnamon.

    I'm not the biggest fan of oatmeal or hot cereals in general, but I love the Bob's Red Mill 5 Grain Rolled Hot Cereal. It also makes awesome cookies. :D I haven't tried the 10 grain, yet, but it looks like it makes a nice breakfast.

    I tried this morning and it is really good. The first bite was a little weird, but each bite got better and better and I was very satisfied. I will be eating this again soon. Thanks for sharing.
