You all know how much my children love their oatmeal in the mornings. Well, today I decided to change it up a bit and replace the oatmeal with Grape Nuts cereal. They loved it! My husband wasn't as huge of a fan, but the kids really enjoyed it.
1 3/4 cups milk
1 cup Grape Nuts cereal (mine is the generic brand)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
dash of cinnamon
Pour milk, sugar, and cinnamon into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the cereal and allow to continue boiling for one more minute, stirring occasionally. Turn the heat off and allow the cereal to sit until soft (about three minutes). Spoon into bowls and add a drizzle of milk to help cool it down.
*I have also done the same thing with Shredded Wheat.
