This ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS, wholesome cold cereal is even easier than granola, and it’s filled with wonderful flavor and texture. I am going to make this once a week from now is SO GOOD!! Recipe is from Light and Tasty’s June/July 2005 issue. Cook time is chilling in the fridge. You can substitute other dried fruits or nuts: I didn't have any apples on hand, so I used raisins instead. YUMMMMM!!!!

This was so tasty, and so filling. I made one serving (half the recipe) to see if I would like it. I loved it! So the next day, I made an assembly line of the dry ingredients into small covered containers for the rest of the week. Then each evening, I added the wet ingredients to one bowl and put in the refrigerator for the next morning. Perfect for on-the-go breakfasts during the week.

Wonderful! I loved this with some cottage cheese for breakfast. I used a dried fruit mix that was already in small pieces to make this even easier. I also placed some whole almonds in a small bag and gave them a good wack with a hammer, rather than the sliced. I also added some wheat germ to the mix. Next time I am going to use walnuts and think some sunflower seeds would be nice. Personally, I think this makes more than 2 servings, more like 4 and its very filling. Great recipe, thanks for posting. — Jul 14, 2006 Had to up-date post. If you stick it in the microwave for 1 minute and top with a little cream or milk this makes a wonderful hot breakfast. Top with some fresh berries and you have brerakfast heaven lol.

My 90 yo mother rec'd a tray of dried fruit at Christmas which was too chewy for her. So I searched for recipes and now we are both hooked on this for breakfast! The first time I put too much fruit in, which made it too sweet. So I made 1/2 cup plain oatmeal & heated 1/2 cup of this in the microwave & mixed. Top with lowfat milk & WOW, delicious and fills you up for hours. I have eliminated the honey because it is sweet enough. Can use any type of fruit (we had pineapple, prunes & peaches besides the apples & apricots), just don't forego the cranberries or almonds because they really make it. Now I have to buy more fruit & make this every week for both of us!
