Toasted Skillet 6-Grain Cereal

Printed from

*Makes 1 Quart

A crunchy granola type cereal that is delicious plain. Or I like to eat it with milk or yogurt and fruit on top. My choices of fruit would be berries (dried or fresh) or peaches.


6 Tbsp. salted butter (or 1/3 Cup coconut oil plus 1/4 tsp. salt)

3 Tbsp. honey

1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 Cups 6-Grain rolled cereal (or alternately use old fashioned rolled oats)

1/2 Cup chopped nuts (my choices would be walnuts, almonds, or pecans)

1/2 Cup toasted coconut chips, optional*


In a large skillet over medium heat melt butter (or coconut oil plus salt) and honey. Add vanilla and mix together. Add 6-grain rolled cereal and chopped nuts and stir until combined. Turn down heat slightly and roast cereal until golden brown about 10-15 minutes. Stir often so the cereal doesn't burn, especially near the end of cooking time. Let cereal cool. It will crisp up as it cools until it is nice and crunchy. Add the coconut flakes, if using. Store in an air-tight container for up to two weeks.
