Homemade Granola Cereal


Yes, I’ve become a member of the card-carrying granola mom club.  Funny thing is, my daughter is actually the one who asked if I’d make it this time.  She is starting to embrace the fact that I am not going to cave and let her have whatever, so she’s working within the whole foods boundaries.  She wanted granola that she could eat as a breakfast cereal, so this is what I came up with.


Homemade Granola Cereal

In a large bowl, mix:
3.5 cups oats
2 tsp. cinnamon
grated ginger (about 1 tsp.)
grated nutmeg (about 1/2 tsp.)

In a sauce pan melt:
6 Tbs. butter
1/2 cup honey

When it’s melted, take off heat and add 3 tsp. vanilla extract.

Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and mix to coat.  Spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in a 250-degree oven for 70 minutes.  The granola will harden as it cools.  Break into chunks and store in an airtight container.

Serve plain as a snack, or with milk as a breakfast cereal.
