Healthy Find: Bob’s Red Mill High Fiber Cereal

Posted Sep 29 2010 9:01am

A girl and her cereal

I am no stranger to Bob’s products.  His cornmeal, oat bran, polenta and whole grain pancake mix have all been regulars in my pantry for the past few years. I had yet to try his Whole Grain High Fiber Hot Cereal, though — even though I had been intending to since Rachel at Coconut Crumbs blogged about it back in March.

As luck would have it, a recent trip to Whole Foods found me face to face with it’s fiber-y goodness.

Now, when Bob says high fiber, he means high fiber.

To break it down: 
1/3 cup (dry) = 8 grams gut-healthy insoluble fiber plus 2 grams heart-healthy soluble fiber = TEN grams of fiber
. Whew!

I opened it up and gave it a try.  Man, look at all that fiber…

Cooked like the package said:  1/3 cup cereal plus 3/4 cup water.  I stirred in some almond milk, and topped with dried cranberries and walnuts.

Similar to oatmeal, but with a smoother consistency.  I do enjoy me a hot cereal.  The walnuts added a nice crunch.

The best part about this cereal?  I was still full long after my stomach would usually be rumbling for lunch.

As I ate my cereal, I started to think.  The bag presented a very enticing muffin recipe, which I intend to try.  This would be a great addition to other recipes, too, I thought.

The next day, I tested Bob’s out in pancake batter. 1/3 cup Bob’s plus 2/3 cup whole grain pancake mix. Excellent.

(Oh, and served with leftover pomegranate syrup from Pomegranate Poached Pears ! Yum.)

The next day:  Zucchini Apple Bread with Walnuts!  Also excellent! Recipe can be found Here .

I think I’ve found a winner.  Then again, Bob has never done me wrong! :P
