Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Grapenuts
Ready to Bake
I mentioned my homemade grapenuts in a post a couple of weeks ago and a reader requested that I share it.
Homemade Grape-nuts Cereal
3 1/2 lbs. whole wheat flour (approx. 11 2/3 cups)
3/4 cup oil
3 cups sour cream (I use yogurt)
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. salt
1 tbsp. baking soda
2 cups buttermilk*
Mix together all ingredients except buttermilk. Mix well, then gradually stir in the buttermilk. Divide dough onto 3 greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. When cool, crumble in blender** and then dry in warm oven (200 to 225 degrees), stirring occasionally- this usually takes several hours. When dry, the grapenuts will be crunchy.
* Make your own by mixing 1 Tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup of milk. Let sit for 5 minutes and use as you would buttermilk in baking.
** When the pans are somewhat cool I cut the “cookies” up into pieces and turn them over allowing the cookie to cool faster. Once cool, I blend a few pieces at a time…if you do too many pieces, it won’t blend very easily.
