Hot and Nutty Cereal

I’m a huge fan of Carrie Brown‘s Recipes.

I’m slowly going through her recipes.  I try a new one every few weeks.  I have to choose which ones I will try on my own, and choose ones I think the kids will enjoy.

Today’s tired and tested recipe is Carrie’s Hot & Nutty Cereal.

To be honest I wasn’t really sure how this one was going to go.  I tried it, and thought yeah I like this, but I think I will enjoy it more with milk.  So the next time I made it, I tried it with milk.  And I had a taste bud sensation.  Those little taste buds of mine loved it, they were having a happy dance.  I also tried it with coconut milk.  Another win.

So if you are looking for a SANE alternative to porridge then this one is a winner.  Now depending how you like your porridge will determine if you want it with milk or with hot water. For me, it’s milk.

I also found that 1/2 cup was way too much for me, I would always leave some left in the bowl.  1/3 of a cup however is perfect, which means when I make the bulk recipe, I have 15 servings instead of 10, another win.

I just gobbled up a bowl of this on this cold Autumn morning, a perfect pick me up after being up at sparrow’s fart for a run.
