Healthy Homemade Cereal With Walnuts, Oats and Apricots
  1. Combine oats, spelt flakes, barley flakes, triticale flakes, wheat berries and walnuts on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake in the centre of a 325°F (160°C) oven, stirring often, until grains and walnuts are fragrant and golden, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  2. In large airtight container, combine cooled grains with walnuts, apricots and dates. Store in an airtight container for up to one month.
Recipe Notes

Serving suggestion:
Place 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the cereal mixture into a bowl. Cover completely with milk and place in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to one day (make the night before) and it will be perfect in the morning.

Warm in microwave if desired or serve cold. Add shredded apple, fresh berries or sliced banana. Drizzle with a little maple syrup or honey and stir to combine.

Tip: All the grains can be found at bulk and health food stores. Bob’s Red Mill also makes a 5-grain dry cereal, which makes a fine substitute.
