Grape Nuts Cereal Recipe
Okay, the other day I had a craving for Grape Nuts, so I modified a couple recipes on the Net and came up with this yummy breakfast cereal. I call it Grape Chunks.
3 1/2 cups sprouted wheat flour
1 cup dehydrated cane juice (SuCanNat)
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup agave
1/4 cup molasses (If you don't like molasses, you can use 1/2 cup agave instead, or any combination to equal 1/2 cup liquid sweetener.)
2 cups buttermilk (or 1 cup plain yogurt mixed with 1 cup filtered water)
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately, then pour the wet into the dry and mix until smooth. Spread batter on a greased cookie sheet, or in two greased 9 x 13 pans. Bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees. When done, remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Then comes the fun. Take this baked cake and break it up into a food processor, then process until it's tiny chunks. Next, pour the crumbs back onto the cookie sheet or 9 x 13 pans, and bake again at 210 for 45 minutes to an hour, or until brown. Cool and store in airtight container. This makes enough for 6 people, if two of those are growing teenagers.
