Graham Cereal

This cereal is so good you won’t want to buy cereal ever again! It doesn’t actually have graham flour in it, but is reminiscent of graham crackers.

  • 4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup dry milk powder
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour or oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (or substitute vinegar whey, which is leftover from some cheese making)
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract (or other flavoring of your choice)
  • 3/4 cup warmed honey
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees (or 300 if using convection oven).
  2. Sift the dry ingredients and combine thoroughly.
  3. Beat the liquid ingredients together.
  4. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  5. Spread on 2 rimmed baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Stir to break up mixture and bake another 10 minutes.
  7. Put into food processor and slice to reach desired size. Cool and store in an airtight container. Makes about a quart of cereal. Enjoy!

Homemade cereal is better than store bought. Plus, you won't be paying for the fancy packaging and you'll be reducing the waste that goes to the landfill and the energy it takes to recycle those cereal boxes!

    We grind locally grown grain to make our own flour. We have a little electric grinder that used to be my grandmother’s and it still works great. When cooking with whole grains it is always a good idea to grind your own flour since it will be fresher than anything you can find in a store and will make your creation especially delicious.
