I’ve been making this cereal granola for so long I hadn’t even realized my recipe had changed from the original! The first two times I followed the directions and pressed it into the mini tart pans. They turned out way too messy to eat and it was an unnecessary step (as is the “bake for 10 minutes”). It’s a great recipe for using bland healthy cereals even if you don’t like them, as the honey and butter make them taste pretttty good.
Cereal Granola (adapted from Country Living’s Cereal Tarts)
2 1/2 cups cereal (bran flakes, wheat chex etc)
1/2 cup oats
2 tsp or so flax seeds, optional
2 tbsp butter, melted
3 tbsp honey
In a food processor, grind up cereal and oats. Drizzle with melted butter and honey, pulse until mixture comes together. (Squeeze in a few more drops of honey if needed.) Scoop into an airtight container, pressing it down a bit if you want granola clumps.
Eat with vanilla yogurt and fruit. Or just the yogurt.
