Creamy Fruit & Nut Breakfast Cereal

This recipe is a sweet, chewy, creamy breakfast cereal that is packed with protein, whole grains, and healthy fats. Serve it warm or cool to suit your needs!

1-1/4 c. cooked wheat berries (cook according to package)
1-1/4 c. rolled oats

2 cups milk
1/4 c. dried currants
1/4 c. golden raisins
3 tbl. chia seed gel (see blog about Chia Seeds)
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbl. sliced almonds, toasted
2 tbl. sunflower seeds, toasted

1. Place oats, milk, currants, and raisins in a microwave safe bowl and stir together. Heat in microwave for 3 minutes. Add wheat berries and reheat for 1 minute. Stir in salt, brown sugar, and vanilla. Let cool for 10 minutes and stir in chia seed gel. Top with a mixture of toasted almonds and serve at desired temperature.

It is best not to heat reheat this recipe at any point due to the chia

content. Chia seeds are an excellent source of both protein and monounsaturated fats that is not stable under heated conditions. However, this recipe will keep in the refrigerator for one week.
