Grains aren't just reserved for dinner. Here nutrient and fiber packed oats and barley combine in a fruit studded, stick to the ribs cereal. If you want to make this the night before, reheat it the next day in a saucepan with 2 tablespoons of water. Quick cooking barley and barley flakes are available in well stocked grocery and supermarkets.
2 1/2 cups water
1 cup milk
3 oz regular rolled oats
3 oz quick-cooking barley or barley flakes
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 oz chopped dried fruit such as dates, apricots, apples, pears, prunes, or raisins
milk (optional)

Cook until barley is tender, about 7 minutes longer. Serve hot with milk, if desired, or cover and refrigerate for serving later.

Favorite Winter Breakfast
I've been making this ever since I discovered Quaker Quick Cooking Barley. Delicious, hearty, great texture & good for you. What more could you ask for to start your day? To make this a quick cook meal, I soak the oats & barley overnight with water (which use instead of milk) and it cuts cooking time down to 5 minutes.
