1/2 pint (1 cup) mason jar with lid
2 tbsp (30 mL ) steel-cut oats
1 tbsp (15 mL) amaranth seeds
1 tbsp (15 mL) teff
1 tbsp (15 mL) buckwheat groats
1 1/2 tbsp (22 mL) raisins
3/4 cup (175 mL ) boiling water
2 tbsp (30 mL ) milk, optional
1 tbsp (15 mL) nuts, your choice, optional
Measure oats, amaranth, buckwheat and teff into the appropriate sized mason jar. Add raisins, chia and cinnamon. Pour boiling water into the jar. Screw the lid tightly and shake. If time permits, set jar on the counter for 15 to 20 minutes. Shake again and place in the refrigerator for 7 hours or more.
Remove from the refrigerator and reheat in a saucepan or microwave until desired temperature is reached. Stir in the milk and sprinkle with nuts and sweetener if desired. Serve.
For an alternative, top with fresh fruits such as raspberries, blueberries or even peaches instead of using dried fruits.
