If you didn’t know, boxed cereals are really worth pennies and they are sold for about $4-$5 a box. What a rip off. Well, we used to had them, but now it has been about two years that we have not even tasted it. Of course, if we did, it’s not a big deal, but honestly, we don’t miss it. Sometimes, when we see them at the grocery store, we wanted to try some but we don’t care for them much. Mom explained to us the process of making dry boxed cereal and the many reasons why we prefer not to buy them.
Instead, we have enjoyed homemade granola, raw buckwheat cereal and homemade corn flakes (We will share recipe soon). To make anything with seeds, nuts and grains, don’t forget to sprout them first, here is why.
You will need:
2 -1/2 cup sprouted and dehydrated buckwheat groats
1/4 cup sprouted and dehydrated sunflower seeds
1/4 cup sprouted and dehydrated pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sprouted and dehydrated and chopped almonds
1/2 cup sprouted and dehydrated chopped walnuts or pecans
3 TBLP coconut oil
4 TBLS sorghum, maple syrup or raw honey
1 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup of dried fruit of your choice. We used raisins and cranberries here.
Mix them all up and dehydrate (118 degrees for about 4 hours).
We like it on our homemade yogurt, homemade ice cream, or homemade frozen yogurt, or also just by itself as a snack when we’re out.
