This is a filling, delicious breakfast, and the flavors of the goat cheese and fig preserves really transform it into something beyond the same old bowl of oatmeal. That said, the recipe amounts are a bit confusing. (There's enough topping for 4 servings, but it only serves 1?) I find it's easiest to make 4 servings of cereal per instructions on the cereal packaging and save leftover cereal & topping in the fridge for another morning. (The cereal reheats just fine in the microwave.)
Creamy 7-Grain with Goat Cheese, Yogurt, and Fig
Whole-grain wheat, rye, oats, triticale, barley, brown rice, oat bran, and flaxseed pack a punch of texture and 37g whole grains per serving. Add fresh figs if you have them on hand.
