Cream of Wheat with Maple Walnuts and Cranberries
Classic Cream of Wheat becomes healthier and more filling when you prepare it with calcium-rich fat-free milk and top it with omega-3 packed walnuts and flaxseed. Maple syrup and vanilla add some satisfying sweetness.
- Combine the milk and cream of wheat or Wheatena in a 4-cup microwaveable bowl or mixing cup. Whisk with a fork. Microwave on high power for 2 minutes. Whisk again. Microwave in 30-second intervals, whisking after each interval, for about 60 seconds, or until thickened. Stir in the flaxseed and vanilla extract. Spoon into a cereal bowl. Set aside.
- Coat a small microwaveable plate with cooking spray. Spread the walnuts on the plate. Drizzle them with syrup. Microwave on high power for about 45 seconds, or until sizzling. Using a spatula, scatter the glazed walnuts over the cereal mixture. Top with the cranberries.
