Some Like Em Hot

April 23, 2014 § 4 Comments

When I was a kid my Dad taught me how to make “Hot Grape Nuts.” At the time we followed a recipe they used to print on the box which called for brown sugar, but during our Year of No Sugar I rediscovered this extremely simple recipe and just left the sugar out. Between baked goods, sweetened cereals and running-out-the-door convenience food, breakfast can be the hardest meal of the day to do No Sugar style, and a quick hot cereal made with full fat milk can be just the ticket. (And much though I love it, you really can eat only so much oatmeal.)

Hot Grape Nuts

Hot Grape Nuts

(makes 2-3 servings)

  • 1 cup Grape Nuts cereal (similar No Sugar cereals that work equally well can be found under names like Nutty Nuggets or Kashi’s Seven Whole Grain Nuggets)
  • 1 1/3 cup milk (I use full fat milk)
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter

Put all ingredients in a saucepan on the stove and heat until just about to boil- the edges of the milk with start looking frothy. Turn heat down to a simmer and cook one minute.

Top with your favorite berries or sliced banana and a little extra milk if you like.

That’s it!
