We’ve kicked around the idea of making our own cereal for a while, so when we saw this easy recipe for a knockoff version of Grape-Nuts, we had to give it a try. It’s basically just a cracker made from graham flour that’s crushed into chunks, and it really does have the crunchy, malty flavor of the original. Read more about the cookbook it comes from, Good to the Grain, which is all about baking with whole-grain flours.
What to buy: Graham flour is a coarsely textured flour made of whole wheat. You can find it in bulk at most co-ops and health-food stores or in packages from Bob’s Red Mill online.
