Hot Cereal with Apple Butter and Walnuts

A small portion of heart-healthy walnuts adds even more flavor.

  • prep: 5 mins
    total time: 5 mins
  • servings: 1




  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 3 tablespoons hot wheat cereal (not instant)
  • 3 tablespoons apple butter
  • 1 teaspoon light-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts

Cook's Note

For a creamy taste (and extra calcium), cook wheat cereal in fat-free milk instead of water.


  1. Step 1

    In a small saucepan, bring milk to a simmer; gradually whisk in wheat cereal.

  2. Step 2

    Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring frequently, until cereal has thickened and is cooked, about 2 minutes (adjust consistency with water, if necessary). Top cereal with apple butter, sugar, and walnuts.
