  • Combine all dry ingredients. Makes 4-2/3 cups dry mix (14- 1/3-cup servings). See steps below for making one or two servings. If you have remaining ingredients, store in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

For two servings:

  • In a medium saucepan, bring 1-1/2 cups water and, if you like, 1 tablespoon butter to boiling. Add 2/3 cup of the combined ingredients; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until cereal reaches desired consistency (cereal will thicken slightly as it cools). Let stand 1 to 2 minutes before serving. To serve, drizzle with honey if you like.

For one serving in a microwave:

  • In a large microwave-safe cereal bowl, combine 3/4 cup water, 1/3 cup of the combined ingredients and, if you like, 1 teaspoon butter. Microwave, uncovered, on 50 percent power (medium) for 8 to 10 minutes or until cereal reaches desired consistency (cereal will thicken slightly as it cools). Let stand 1 minute before serving. To serve, drizzle with honey if you like. Makes 4-2/3 cups dry mix (14- 1/3-cup servings).
