So quick and easy that it really isn't even a recipe. You can have warm cereal on a cold day without any muss or fuss. I have added fresh fruit (blueberries are a favorite) after heating the cereal. Brown sugar could be subbed for the honey. Or, eliminate the extra sweetener and use vanilla soy milk instead of regular milk. The possibilities are endless.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup Grape-nuts cereal
  • 13 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Combine cereal and milk in a microwavable bowl.
  2. Drizzle with the honey.
  3. Microwave on High to taste: 30 seconds for a BIG crunch; 60 seconds for a little crunch.

I followed the recipe directions using a Fire King bowl covered in saranwrap, and nuked it for 60 seconds. A lot of the milk boiled off, and the saranwrap shrunk down on top of the cereal. The cereal was very viscous, almost like toffee nuggets. I added more milk and nuked it again for 15 seconds. It was very tasty -- no crunch, but chewy. Be aware that the Grape Nuts expand a lot as they absorb the milk and honey. I'd say a quarter cup of cereal from the box makes 1.25 cups of warm cereal.
