Ground Wheat Breakfast Cereal (Whole Foods)

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 30 mins

An interesting sounding whole foods breakfast. Particularly if you grind your own wheat, it could be nice to try. I have amended the salt amounts based on reviews.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup ground wheat
  • salt, to taste


  1. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil.
  2. Mix together the extra 1 cup of water, ground wheat and salt.
  3. Add them to the boiling water, stirring constantly while it thickens to avoid lumps.
  4. Reduce the heat and cook it for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Serve with milk or soy milk or honey or molasses.

I quartered the recipe for 1 person. I used just a pinch of salt and it cooked up nicely. I ground up whole wheat berries in the coffee grinder. I had with a spoonful of honey. Lovely breakfast. Thanks! I ate it up before I realized I hadn't taken a photo!

I love cracked wheat cereal (that's what we call this yummy cereal. I've been meaning to make some and this spurred me on. I am giving this 5 stars because I know how yummy it is if you use less salt, which is what I did today when using your recipe but I would reduce the amount of salt by at least 1/2 (I think the amount might be a typo) Yummy healthy recipe and actually very quick!

Tasty, unique, easy and delightfully healthy. BF is still raving about how much he enjoyed ladypit's Kamut Pancakes (#75548), so I figured this recipe made with freshly ground whole grains might be a hit as well. I made a half recipe (3 servings) for breakfast for BF and myself this morning and we both enjoyed it very much. I ground up some soft wheat berries in my coffee grinder to a fairly course grind (not quite flour, but not too chunky either), which was just lovely. I did not use the full amount of salt called for- I just put in a couple shakes from my salt shaker. If you're serving this as a sweet-type breakfast dish, I see no reason to add all that salt. We both had ours with milk and I had mine with honey and BF had his with maple syrup. The serving size in the end was quite small- BF and I had 1.5 servings each, and it was still not very much, although quite filling for its size. We enjoyed this a lot, though, and it is something I would certainly make again, though it did do a number on the pot I cooked it in. Thanks!
