Gluten Free Hot Cereal Recomendations?
0

13 posts in this topic

I really need some hot cereal for mornings now that its starting to get cold out. What do you recomend? I want to stay away from the gluten free oats for now since they are so expensive. What hot cereals have you tried and are they actually good?

BRM oats: $0.13/oz

BRM millet grits: $0.14/oz

BRM mighty tasty hot cereal $0.13/oz

Ancient Harvest quinoa flakes $0.43/oz

Nabisco Cream of Rice $0.19/oz

BRM cream of buckwheat $0.31/oz

(prices online at a.m.a.z.o.n)

Even gluten free, oats aren't all that expensive. You could probably make you're own cream of rice cereal by partially blending up a short grain rice, though it may take some time to cook.

Also, what about eggs and beans? Or a simple soup that you can heat up in the morning?

I love love love cream of rice. BRM mighty tasty hot cereal is pretty awesome too. I got my BRM oats on sale for less than a buck a pound. Oats don't have to be expensive.

I'll admit though, with oats or the BRM cereal my favorite way to have it was always with an over easy or sunny side egg on top. I'd break it open and let it get all runny all over then stir it all up. Sprinkly on some bacon and/or syrup. Yum! That doesn't fix your egg problem though. :P

It's not a cereal, but I've been having split peas for breakfast some days, just add butter & salt after cooking. They take about an hour to cook, so making it ahead might be a good idea to save time in the morning.

The Pamela's Pancake Mix is excellent. The cooked pancakes freeze well (separate with wax paper) so make a batch and eat some/freeze some. For a "sausage biscuit" fix, I will wrap a small pancake around a turkey sausage link. (I will make some of my pancakes on the small side so that I can do this.) My kids go through phases where they will take a pancake (can be for breakfast, lunch or dinner), warm it up, spread half with peanut butter and half with nutella.

Oh yes, frozen pancakes and muffins are a staple at our house. I make banana muffins )from almond meal) 8-dozen at a time and freeze them, the microwave them to either "just-not-frozen" or "steaming hot", depending on if it's for my toddler or me. :)

I freeze Gluten Free Pantry pancakes. I always make more than we can eat so I have some in the freezer. To re-heat, I stack 3 on a plate, microwave for a minute to a minute and a half and they are perfect.

I too like the Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty rice cereal - I make it with more water than it says to. I also mix in some ground flaxseed and an egg just as it finishes cooking (making sure the egg is cooked) and then walnuts and cranberries. I think I use 1/4 cup of cereal to about 1 cup of water. Yum ! Frozen berries make a great add in as well.

Oh- another hot breakie I like is a mix of brown rice & quinoa (keep some cooked in the fridge), about a cup full, with an egg and nuts and cranberries or raisins - nuked for about a minute & a half. It don`t look pretty but it is filling.

Is anyone doing Bob's oats? I tried soon after dx based on my GI's nutrionist advice (just 3/4 cup), but I just didn't feel well back then. I tried once more and still no good.

I am doing very well now, so I thought I would give it a try again.

My cholesterol situation is not good at all, and before dx, I managed to bring my numbers in line with a good low carb diet which included starting the day with

a good oatmeal/flax meal/cinnamon breakfast. It fills you up till lunch time too, so I would like to try again.

just wanted to see how many of us are trying gluten-free oats again.

I seem to have no problem with it but I waited until I was about 9 months gluten-free to try them. I like BRM gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats and have it occasionally, not every day because I'm too lazy to cook it. :lol:

i'm quite fond of 2 poached eggs on Homemade gluten-free Toast in the mornings, and those are plenty warm to heat up during the cold winter months

I've recently been trying to have a little bit of the BRM gluten-free Quick Cook oats, but am having a little issue with them. I'm still trying to test it out to make sure. Not sure if it was the extra protein that is just wrecking my system or the oats.

I've been making it with water and Homemade Strawberry Jam

A Udi's muffin popped in the microwave for a few seconds also does the trick in a jiffy.

Hopes this gives you some ideas.
