Multi Grain Hot Cereal (Crockpot)

I wanted to prepare a healthy whole grain cereal in the crockpot.  This is a recipe adapted from the Complete Whole Grains Cookbook by Judith Finlayson.  I modified the recipe to give it more flavor.  It was a little bland so I added natural applesauce and additional fresh cut apples.  It is very healthy and easy to prepare.

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.
