Mixed Grain and Wild Rice Cereal

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour 40 min.


8-10 servings

My husband and I love this flavorful cereal so much that I often prepare a large batch on weekends. Then on hurried weekday mornings, I simply reheat it.


  • 8 cups water, divided
  • 1/2 cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup medium pearl barley
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Honey, optional


  1. In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups water and wild rice; bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes; drain. Place in a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish. Add the barley, oats, raisins, dates, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and remaining water.
  2. Cover and bake at 375° for 1 hour and 40 minutes or until grains are tender, stirring occasionally. Serve with honey if desired.
