Crockpot Wheat Berry Cereal

I’m always looking for new ways to get a serving of grain at every meal. I have several 1/2 gallon mason jars full of different grains in my pantry and I try to rotate them each week for variety. Sometimes I use my rice cooker, other times I experiment using my crock pot. Breakfast in the crock pot is awesome! Who doesn’t want to wake up to a hot meal, especially when you’re as busy as I am in the mornings!

This is one of our favorite wheat berry breakfast combos… so filling and so easy!

Crockpot Wheat Berry Cereal

Crockpot Wheat Berry Cereal

* 1 cup wheat berries, rinsed and drained

* 2 cups water (you can use almond milk if you prefer)

* 1/2 cup chopped fruit – I use apples, dried apricots or dried cranberries

* 1/4 – 1/2 cup raisins

* 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

* 1/8 tsp Stevia

* 1/2 tsp cinnamon

* 1/4 tsp allspice

* 1/4 tsp ground cloves

* 1/4 tsp ground cardamom

* 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted (I also use walnuts, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds)

- Combine everything into crockpot in the evening, stir to mix.

- Cook on low overnight and serve in the morning with your favorite toppings!

Mix all ingredients into Crockpot, cook on low overnight!

Yummy!

    Do you know what type of wheat berries you used? I looked all over my Whole Foods for wheat berries with no success. Would love to make this on school mornings.

    • You know, I’m not sure. I only recently discovered there are a few different varieties. I got them from Whole Foods, that’s all I know. Maybe use another grain instead? Maybe it’s labeled something different??
