This may be the first time you’ve ever heard of the term “hot cereal” and that is perfectly understandable. But to give you an idea, a hot cereal is ground, crushed, or chopped grains boiled in water or milk until soft. One common example is an oatmeal and other grains such as rice, wheat, and barley.

With that said, here are 15 delicious hot cereal recipes to kickstart your day!

7. Matcha Coconut Toasted Oat Bran Bowl


Continuing this weeks theme of meals in a bowl, I bring you this matcha coconut oat bran bowl! Let’s hereby declare oat bran bowls as the new smoothie bowl. Smoothie bowls are at least one step up from smoothies in terms of filling factor, but I need something a little more stick-to-your-ribs in the morning. This bowl of fiber-rich oat bran simmered with coconut milk does the trick.

Let’s talk fiber for a moment here. Did you know there are multiple types of fiber? Soluble fibers, like psyllium, beta-glucans and gums are fibers that are soluble with water, forming a gel-like substance in the gut that helps digestion and lowers cholesterol. Insoluble fibers, like cellulose and lignan, does not dissolve in water and provides bulk to help keep you regular. Both types of fiber help keep you satisfied, by keeping food in your stomach longer. Oats and oat bran contain both types of fiber, so you get a full spectrum of health benefits.

6. Blueberries and Cream Oatmeal Cereal Recipe


This recipe for blueberries and cream oatmeal was the result of my mission to learn how to make the perfect bowl of oatmeal. I’ll refrain from hyperbole in calling it the best, but I will say, with creamy, toasted coconut oats topped with a sweet-tart blueberry jam, it’s definitely become my go to oatmeal recipe when I want something warm and cozy in the morning. Why you should toast your oats?

If you’ve never toasted your oats before, get ready for an epic oatmeal upgrade! It sounds time consuming, but toasting your oats takes less than a minute. Just heat up a little butter or coconut oil in the pot you’re cooking the oatmeal in and stir in the uncooked oats. Let it cook for about a minute or two, stirring occasionally, until it smells fragrant and, for lack of a better word, oaty, It brings out the flavor in the oats and also makes your kitchen smell like heaven. You can do this for any kind of oats you’re cooking, whether it’s steel cut or quick oats. I think it also helps with the texture of the oats too, keeping them from getting too mushy.

5. Creamy Millet Porridge a Cereal Breakfast Recipes


Millet porridge is a creamy, gluten-free breakfast easily made in the slow cooker overnight and ready when you wake up. With hints of cinnamon and vanilla it’s the perfect base to top with your favorite fresh fruit, nuts and seeds for a hearty start to the day. Especially great when you want to switch things up from oatmeal!

For this breakfast porridge though, the trick to getting the millet nice and creamy is actually grinding down most of the millet so that the consistency is somewhere in between its normal state and flour.
