Maple brown sugar Cream of wheat




One word, "Delicious". I received a sample packet of 'Maple brown sugar Cream of wheat'. Tonight, while trying to fight my sweet tooth, I gave in and glanced in the cupboard. There it was staring at me, right up front...I paced a few minutes and grabbed the packet. When I turned it over, I noticed it would only take 1 1/2 minute to cook IN THE MICROWAVE!! As a mother, this is perfect. A quick, warm, healthy and tasteful breakfast (or in my case a snack).

Step one- Pour contents into microwave safe bowl.

Step two- Pour 1/2 cup water into mixture and stir

Step three- Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes

Step four- Stir and enjoy! (Use caution, bowl and contents will be hot)

I stirred in a tiny pat of butter into my Cream of wheat for a little creamier taste. The texture is good, not gritty or too runny and it is sweet but, not too sweet.

Since this was a sample packet that I received in the mail, there wasn't any nutritional information on the packet. I googled it for you.
