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.
How to increase the deliciousness of peanut butter:
1. Mix it with honey*
2. Make homemade peanut butter with honey roasted peanuts, cinnamon, and white chocolate chips (made without the cinnamon chips)
3. Mix it with molasses and spices for gingerbread peanut butter
4. Use it in healthy cookie dough dip
*I used natural peanut butter, but for regular you might want to heat it up for a few seconds to allow for easier mixing.

"Cookie Dough" Brownies
Well these look…not appealing.
The base of the cookie dough is chickpeas (no, you can’t taste them at all!) and it made the brownies edible, but as a whole they are not worth eating. The dough tastes amazing on its own, so I scraped it off and threw out the brownies.
