This breakfast treat is more exciting than a bowl of oatmeal could ever be. It makes a fun, healthy, homemade gift, too.



Combine all ingredients, except pumpkin seeds.

Toast pumpkin seeds lightly in a dry saucepan set over medium heat. Set aside and cool to room temperature.

Package the mixture in a pretty container. Place toasted pumpkin seeds in a smaller package and slip into larger container.

Include these instructions with gift:
To serve two, mix 1/2 cup dry mix with 1 1/4 cups cold water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer, covered for 15 to 20 minutes. For thinner cereal, add a bit of water or milk. For a thicker treat, simmer a bit longer. Serve topped with milk or a pat of butter and toasted pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!
