How to

  • Gather Ingredients and Tools.

  • Mix all Grains together in a Bowl, reserve 1 Cup of Mixed Grains, and store the rest in an Airtight Container at room temperature for future use.

  • Combine 1 Cup of mixed Grains with 2 ¾ Cup Water in a Mason Jar or Bowl, mix well, and store covered overnight in the Refrigerator.

  • Next morning add soaked mixed grains to a Sauce Pan and place over medium heat on Stovetop until it simmers.

  • Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent any burning (more frequent towards the end due to liquid evaporation). Taste with *Caution* as Cereal will be hot. Add Liquid to thin if desired. 


  • Add a sweetener - Honey, Fresh Fruit, or Preserves.

  • Add texture - Hazelnuts, Pumpkin, Sunflower, or Flax Seeds (toast for added flavor).

  • Add richness - substitute Milk for Water and/or add Yogurt on top.
