How to Make Homemade Cream of Wheat


Homemade Cream of Wheat
Buy at Amazon

Like all good preppers, I have a substantial store of wheat berries dutifully packed away in Mylar bags and nitrogen packed buckets.  However, its a lot easier to buy and pack wheat than it is to cook with it.

Because of this I have been purchasing wheat cookbooks and messing around trying to find recipes that work well with my lifestyle.  On of the very first workable recipes I found was this simple recipe for homemade cream of wheat.

This recipe uses a blender instead of a grinder so its easy.  Of course when SHTF I could set my grinder to course or use a mortar and pestle.

Best yet, using whole wheat berries is cheap verses the $5 a box of cream of wheat that lasts all of two bowls in the morning.

The recipe for Homemade Cream of Wheat is simple.


  • Wheat Berries (ration of 1 wheat / 2 water
  • Water
  • Salt to taste
  • Butter to taste


  • Pulse the wheat in a blender until cracked and not powdered.
  • Boil twice as much water as you have cracked wheat. (salt and butter to taste)
  • Once it has thickened add milk, sugar, honey, nuts, berries, chocolate or anything else (My lovely bride prefers lots of cheddar cheese).
  • Cook until it has the texture and thickness you desire.
  • Put it in a bowl and enjoy.

Its a little nuttier than processed instant cream of wheat, and a lot darker.  I find it compares with oatmeal.

Its not my favorite breakfast food, but its a lot easier to store and loads cheaper than a sausage egg and cheese croissant sandwich….
