Gluten Free Breakfast Cereal Mix

Having a hot breakfast cereal, particularly in the wintertime is a wonderful thing, but can be frustrating if you suffer from gluten allergies. Here’s a delicious gluten free breakfast cereal mix that can be prepared ahead of time.

You’ll Need:
* 1 cup brown basmati rice, coarsely ground
* 1/2 cup quinoa coarsely ground
* 1/2 cup millet coarsely ground
* 1/2 cup buckwheat groats coarsely ground
* 1/2 cup sesame seeds coarsely ground
* 1/2 cup flax seeds coarsely ground
* 1/2 cup cornmeal
* 1/2 cup amaranth


Measure all into a large bowl, mixing well. Transfer to a sealed container or package in small ziploc bags for fast convenience packets.

A coffee grinder works great to grind the grains.

To Use:

Combine 2 c. water, pinch of salt and 1/2 c. cereal mix. Reduce heat to medium/low stirring frequently. Cook approximately 20 minutes.

  1. This sounds really good. Has anyone tried this recipe yet. Where is a good place to buy amaranth?

    I hope to grow my own in the near future but for now I will need to purchase some.

  2. Amaranth tends to be expensive, which is why I am planting it next year. Bob’s Red Mill makes it, and I often find that at Big Lots a bit cheaper than the grocery stores.
