What grains do you ("you personally") mix together to make a cold cereal that you like?

Asked by MagicalMystery (900points) May 18th, 2010

i have been exploring the idea of mixing up a variety of grains, seeds, dried fruits to make a cereal that i can eat with milk. i know some people do this, as opposed to buying cereal in a box. if you mix your own cereal, what grains, fruits and other flavorings do you mix together to make a mixture that you like?

I just throw together what ever I happen to have on hand. If I want a particular taste, I would limit the mix, but if I want a lot of variety, I will add more. I do buy my cereal in boxes, but that doesn’t stop me from mixing them up. I nearly always buy lots of the cheaper one, and then mix in the more expensive ones to add taste.

I cook enough steel-cut oatmeal to last for five days. Each morning I heat up ½ c.: then I add a little ground flax seed (I grind my own in a Krup’s coffee grinder), some oat bran, a shake of organic cinnamon, some sunflower seeds, some sliced almonds or walnuts and 6 pitted prunes.

For variety, I put ½ c. lo-fat cottage cheese in bowl with ¾ c. fresh berries (or sliced fresh peaches or nectarines), the cinnamon, nuts, oat bran and ground flax seed.

Occasionally I will use ½ c. of high protein dry cereal called Golean and add the usual suspects plus some skim milk.

Fast, easy, filling and leaves me feeling extremely virtuous.

Salted sunflower seeds, granola, raisins, craisins, mini chocolate chips and Capn’ Crunch. Perfect fuel to eat dry or cold.
