Grape Nuts to Corn Flakes: 7 Recipes for Homemade Cereal
If your breakfast of choice is dry cereal with a generous splash of cold milk, these recipes are for you. We had no idea it was so easy to make DIY versions of some of our favorite store brands!
2. Chocolate Cookie Breakfast Cereal from Family Fresh Cooking – Made with cocoa powder and gluten-free flours, this is definitely a healthier alternative for a morning sweet tooth.
4. Coco Puffmaranth from The Edible Perspective – Pop some amaranth and toss it with cocoa powder for this version of cocoa puffs.
6. Homemade Corn Flakes from Dancing in a Field of Tansy – What cornflakes were always meant to be.
7. Nutty Bran Flakes from Mr. Breakfast – This recipe is just waiting for a handful of raisins to round it off.
Fruity Pebbles and Trix might be a bit out of reach for homecooks, but we’d be curious to try grinding dehydrated fruits into a powder and substituting that in the recipes that call for cocoa powder. Could be interesting!
All in all, we’re very curious to see how these recipes stack up to the processed versions we’re used to. Do any of you make your own cereal?
