“Homemade Grape Nuts”

Homemade cereal, what a revelation! This recipe for homemade grape nuts thrilled me. I’ve made homemade granola before, but never grape nuts. So I was excited to give this a try.

You will need the following things: Sprouted Whole Wheat Pastry Flour (I used regular whole wheat flour and it worked well!), Light Brown Sugar, Baking Soda, Salt, Molasses, Buttermilk, and Butter.

First you’ll combine your dry ingredients, then your wet ingredients.

Mmm, molasses.

Mmm, buttermilk.

Give it a nice stir.

It will start to come together until it is uniform in color and texture, but not especially wet.

Press it into a baking dish and put it in the oven to bake.

Once it comes out of the oven, let it cool completely in your baking dish.

Once it’s cool, preheat the oven to 275 degrees F and crumble the mixture with your hands as fine or course as you would like your grape nuts to be. You will need several trays for this. Or you could cut this recipe in half to begin with if you don’t want quite so much on hand!

Place the sheet trays in the oven so that the course mixture dries out slowly.

Let it cool out of the oven once it is firm, and once cool, store it in air tight containers.

This was so much better than grape nuts from the store. It had a better texture and the flavor was fabulous.

Here is the full step-by-step recipe, enjoy guys! Homemade Grape Nuts

  1. Very cool recipe! I’ve never thought outside the box…..of Grapenuts, that is!

  2. Sounds great! But does it chip your teeth any less than the store bought version? <—joking (I love grapenuts)

    Any homemade cereal is usually great, and has a slight wow factor for guests/family. I guess because it's one of those things that over time we have somehow assumed only comes from the cereal aisle of the grocery store.

  3. I can’t wait to make this! Thanks! :)

  4. Mmm…..love grapenuts. This looks amazing!

  5. Wow! I have every ingredient but the buttermilk. Can’t wait to try it!

  6. What a unique and simple recipe. The ingredients sound delicious and right out of the pantry which is so convenient.
