Multi Grain Hot Cereal Recipe
1/2 cup brown rice, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup wheat berries
1/2 cup steel cut oats
5 and 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
23 oz. jar of natural applesauce
1/4 cup sugar or preferred sweetener to taste ( I only added about 1/8 cup)
Combine all the ingredients in a lightly greased crockpot.
Cook on low overnight for about 6 hours or on the high setting for 4 hours.
In the last hour of cooking, add dried fruits such as raisins or cranberries. I added raisins which worked out well in the recipe.
