Are you STILL eating instant breakfast cereal? Your going to love this one! It’s as easy as instant, healthy and oh so good, hot or cold.
With the dried fruit there is no need to add anything else for flavor. With a small serving it makes a great mid day snack.
Bring 1/2 cup dried fruit (such as goji berries, cranberries, or barberries), 1/2 cup steel-cut oats, 1/2 cup well-rinsed quinoa, 1/4 cup raisins, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoons ground cardamom, and 4 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Cover and let sit off heat overnight. (Alternatively, bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until grains are tender, 20-25 minutes.)
Before serving, reheat cereal in saucepan, covered, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally and adding water if needed, until warmed through, 5-8 minutes. Serve with milk, maple syrup, toasted shelled pumpkin seeds (pepitas), and toasted walnuts.

I’m adding a quick update to this: a tablespoon of NUTRIMEAL from USANA, sprinkled over the top makes this THE best post workout meal. This also makes a great mid afternoon snack.
