Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 2 mins

My dad died when I was six, but one thing that I will always remember from him is this breakfast that he created himself. It is a sweet way to start your day, especially if you like peanut butter.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 shredded wheat cereal
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter (natural or regular)
  • 2 cups milk (or however much you prefer)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  1. Spread the peanut butter on the shredded wheat biscuit.
  2. Place the biscuit in a cereal bowl and cover with milk.
  3. Microwave the bowl for about 2 minutes, or until the milk is warm and the peanut butter is soft.
  4. Sprinkle sugar on top of peanut butter, and enjoy!

We don't get shredded wheat in my country anymore (sadly), but I tried this on Weet-bix, using honey as my sweetener and I have to say, I love your Dad's "outside of the box" take on cereal - this was great! A wonderful way to get some extra protein into a quicker-than-quick, hot breakfast. So tasty - a definite winner and a keeper for me. Thank you for posting this recipe - I love it :)

I tried this because I like shredded wheat and I like peanut butter, and I am looking for some quick and healthy breakfast solutions before heading out to work. I also love the heart-warming story in its introduction! However, this arrangement doesn't do anything for me, and I won't be making this again for me. I gave this 4 stars because I would definitely try this out on kids! I would think that kids will love it! :) BTW, the first time I made it it exploded in my microwave!

Used 2 teaspoons of sugar and the results were suprisingly good. Will certainly do again for a quick, warm breakfast on a cold winter morning. Thanks APC.
