Many folks are trying to get out of the cold, boxed cereal habit. I stopped serving it regularly a few years ago. But it IS so convenient! What's a busy mom to do?

Why, make this, of course!

Basic Dry Cereal

7 cups dry ingredients consisting of:
2-3 cups flaked oats, and your choice of any of these: wheat or oat bran, wheat germ, grits, cornmeal, kamut, spelt, triticale, or other grain, flaked or ground, nuts and seeds ie, peanuts, almonds, sunflower, flax, sesame, etc., spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.

1 cup of liquid ingredient(s): honey, maple syrup, molasses, oil, butter, peanut butter, milk, cream, or 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp brown sugar with enough water to make 1 cup total

Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Combine wet ingredients in separate bowl and mix well, if needed. Pour the wet ingredient over the dry and mix well. Spread on a large jelly roll pan and bake at 300 degrees for 30-45 minutes, stirring often. When done, add any desired fruit ie, raisins, snipped apricots, cranberries, etc.
