I also used grape nuts in place of the barley. We put this on top of hot cereal/oatmeal and it was yummy.
Three-Grain Breakfast Cereal with Walnuts and Dried Fruit
This mixture of barley and oats with nuts and raisins will keep you going all morning. Walnuts provide omega-3 fatty acids, but pecans also work nicely in this high-fiber cereal. Serve with yogurt or milk, and top with fresh fruit.
