Thanks for adding this basic recipe on the site. I often toss the bag, store the goodies in a plastic wear, and thus have lost the instructions.

Very simple microwave instructions. Dont forget to let it stand 2-3 minutes. As a diabetic I use a sugarless packet for a little sweetner. I add raisons, peanuts and walnuts as a variety to get the breakfast balance of protein.

My favorite wholesome breakfast. Thanks for putting the basic recipe on the site! I prepare this with a little light cream, agave, some sliced almonds, dried cranberries, and a little cinnamon. Delicious!

I love these multigrain cereals. Anyone who was bitten by oatmeal as a small child (me) should really try these. They bear NO comparison to oatmeal! (Shudders) They're delicious and nutty! Yumm!

Any chance of more nutrient detail? I'd love to know about iron, B's etc.

The cereal is great HOWEVER is it possible to get the nutritional information for the recipe on the bag COOKED/PREPARED please. I think a lot of consumers would appreciate the prepared recipe NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION values thank you!

The nutrition facts for 1 serving of our cooked 5 Grain Rolled Cereal (about 2/3 cups) will be the same as the nutrition facts for 1 serving of dry 5 Grain Rolled Cereal (1/3 cup). It’s important to note that our cooking instructions ask for water. This will not affect nutrient value.
