Weekday breakfasts are almost always cereal since that means the big two can supervise while I take a shower and get set for school. I had been buying cereal at the discount grocery, but we kept running out at odd moments and we were really limited in what we could buy. I don’t like the sugary cereals and there aren’t many commercial ones that don’t include some form of dairy.
I bought a fifty pound bag of rolled oats and started making granola (which is a post for another time). And that was fine for a while but got kind of boring every day.
Then I was looking through my cookbook (More With Less from the Mennonite Central Committee one of the few cookbooks I would not willingly part with) and saw that they had a recipe for homemade Grape Nuts!
Yay! Two cereals I can make at home.
Actually one cereal the six year old can make with some supervision! Even better….
And here’s the recipe!
