Blueberry Grape-Nut Porridge
This is a hot cereal that's super easy to make and a fun change of pace from cold cereal or oatmeal. If you're a fan of Grape-Nuts, you'll probably like this one... if only for the novelty of trying something new. The cereal nuggets soften in the microwave but retain their integrity - giving a texture that's somewhat like very firm steel-cut oatmeal. Truth be told, I prefer my Grape-Nuts as a cold cereal, but I was happy that I got to try this alternate method of enjoying an old favorite. (This recipe was tested and photographed in November 2015.)
- 1/2 cup Post Grape-Nuts cereal
1/3 cup vanilla soy milk (regular milk with two drops of vanilla extract works in a pinch)
3 Tablespoons fresh blueberries
2 teaspoons honey or brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
How To Make Blueberry Grape-Nut Porridge

Microwave for 40 seconds.
Immediately stir blueberries into porridge. Microwave 15 additional seconds.
For a special treat, dollop a heaping Tablespoon of vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt or whipped cream on top before serving.
A new, and some might say "better", way to eat Grape-Nuts.
