Blackberry-Hazelnut Power Bowl



  • 2 cups – water
  • 1/2 cup – fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup – kamut
  • 1/2 cup – steel cut oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon – ground nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup – fresh or frozen blackberries (thawed, if frozen)
  • 2 teaspoons – honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon – vanilla extract
  • 1 – banana, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons – chopped toasted hazelnuts
  • Pair each serving with:
  • 8-ounce glass of milk


In a large heavy-bottom sauce pan, bring the water, 1/2 cup milk, kamut, oats, nutmeg, and salt to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until kamut is tender and oats have softened, about 35 minutes, stirring periodically. Remove from heat and let cereal stand, covered, before serving. Add more water as needed during cooking to prevent the grains from scorching and sticking to the bottom of the pan.

While the cereal cooks, combine the berries, honey, and vanilla in a small bowl and coarsely mash with a fork.

To serve, divide cereal between serving bowls and top each with half of the banana slices and half of the toasted hazelnuts. Spoon some of the mashed blackberry mixture on top. Serve cereal with an 8-ounce glass of milk.
