Hot cereal with raisins, coconut, applesauce + nuts (gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, vegetarian)

Made from brown rice, corn, sorghum, and buckwheat, Bob’s Red Mill’s Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal is gluten-free and worth a try. But you can use these ideas with your favorite hot cereal. The secret ingredient is applesauce, to thicken and sweeten the cereal without sugar.

Ingredients
  • hot cereal of choice
  • soy milk, nut milk, or rice milk
  • raisins
  • coconut flakes
  • unsweetened, organic applesauce
  • sliced or slivered nuts of choice
  • chia seeds
  • fresh fruit (optional)
Method
  1. Prepare the hot cereal according to the package instructions. Instead of using all water to cook the cereal, considering using half milk.
  2. Add the raisins, coconut flakes, and applesauce while the cereal is cooking. When the cereal is done, turn off the heat and let the cereal rest for 5 minutes or so.
  3. To serve, stir in the nuts and chia seeds and add more milk and fresh fruit, if desired.
