Warm Grape-Nuts Breakfast
Warm Grape-Nuts Breakfast is great on a cold day when you don’t have a lot of time but want something filling and good for you.

Grape-Nuts is a breakfast cereal developed in 1897 by C. W. Post, a former patient and later competitor of the 19th-century breakfast food innovator, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg. The cereal originally prepared by C. W. Post when developing the product was a batter that came from the oven as a rigid sheet. He then broke the sheet into pieces and ran them through a coffee grinder to produce the “nut”-sized kernels.~ Wikipedia

Warm Grape-Nuts Breakfast Makes You Feel Better

Well, I guess The Good Plate is “poopular” because our old host said we were too busy, so we moved to a new host. Lots of things happened while we were away, and I’ll have to get you all caught up. We had a wonderful Halloween, and quite the turnout.  I was sick all that week, but I still made Halloween happen.  I cut my hair, and you can see in this photo that I look a little pale.  I was still sick. When you are sick, you want something warm and comforting, and this is it.

But, enough about me, let’s talk about food!  It’s been very cold lately, and I don’t like sending Spane off to school without a warm breakfast.  When he was a toddler, his favorite breakfast was Grape-nuts and milk warmed up, softened, in the microwave.  I don’t like hot cereal, so I never tried it.  Well, after I doctored it up, it was very good.  You have to try this!

I tend to like things on the sweet side. You could omit the sugar in this if you wanted to. I use whole milk, but you could use low-fat, non-fat, or a vanilla-flavored almond or other milk would also be fine in this. You could add cinnamon if you want to add a little spice to this.

    I don’t usually do reviews and I was a little hesitant about this one. But, I happened to have some Grape-Nuts and it was cold, so I made it. I loved it.
