Whole grain muffins

I just put a batch of whole grain muffins in the oven. The recipe is on the package of Bob's Red Mill 8 grain hot cereal. If you aren't familiar with Bob's Red Mill products, look them up.

Ever since I discovered I had heart disease (or rather my doctor says I do, I have cause to dispute that. . . but anyway. . .)I stopped eating bacon/sausage and eggs for breakfast every morning and looked for other alternatives. . . but it had to be good. Bob's Red Mill is now owned by the employees since Bob retired. They have a multitude of really good - and highly nutritious - whole grain products. I make their hot cereals for breakfast most mornings and use them in recipes.

I freeze the muffins and take one or two out at a time. I use them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Love 'em!


  1. They look good..but tell me,what is hot cereal ??
    Ive never heard of it.Is it just a whole grain flour ??

  2. Hot cereal can be oatmeal or, gosh, there are so many varieties. You cook them and serve them hot. In the States, "cold cereal" means you pour it out of the box into your bowl, add milk and eat! This particular 8 grain cereal is one example of hot cereal. I don't care for it cooked as a hot cereal, but it sure makes very nice muffins.
