GF Hot Cereal Combo: Everything But the Kitchen Sink

I love mornings, and I love breakfast even more.  But during the school year, breakfast is not a leisurely meal.  I want to start my day with a wholesome breakfast that’s quick to make and easy to eat on the run.  But as much as I love smoothies, sometimes I just need a hot breakfast.  Every gluten-free kitchen should have these breakfast cereal options:

  1. Gluten-free Rolled Oats
  2. Quinoa Flakes
  3. Buckwheat Groats
  4. Mighty Tasty GF Hot Cereal
While each hot cereal is delicious on its own, or with a topping of fresh fruit, sometimes I just can’t decide which one to have for breakfast.  Do I want the creaminess of a bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon and bananas?  Nutty quinoa flakes with soft dried fruit and chia seeds?  Chewy buckwheat groats topped with crunchy almonds and a drizzle of molasses?  Or Bob’s corn-based Mighty Tasty GF Hot Cereal?  Oh, the choices!
One morning last week, I decided to have them all, and this Gluten-Free Hot Cereal Combo is now my favorite way to start the day.

All you need is these ingredients (and quinoa flakes, which didn’t make the photo).

A tablespoon and a teaspoon.

This duo was given to me by Pamela, herself, at the Gluten and Allergen-Free Expo!

But back to the hot cereal combo.  All you need is a tablespoon of each of the major ingredients, and a teaspoon of chia seeds.

If your morning is as busy as mine, you may want to scoop all of your ingredients into a bowl the night before.  I keep my cereals in mason jars so they are easy to store and scoop.

Place all of the ingredients in a small sauce pan and cover it with 3/4 cup of water.

I like to let it sit for 10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to gel, but if you’re in a hurry, move right on.  Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat, stir, and cover.  A delicious, wholesome breakfast is waiting for you just 3-5 minutes later.

 What a great way to start your day!

    So you’ve had no trouble with the gf oats from bob’s red mill or the hot & tasty one? We haven’t tried them yet b/c I was a little nervous about trying oats again, though I know they are supposedly gluten free…

      I have never had trouble with any of Bob’s gf products. I know some people are sensitive to oats, but in terms of gluten, I’ve never been let down by Bob. Thanks for commenting, Heather!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
