Homemade Cereal

Has anyone tried making homemade cereal with unprocessed wheat bran? I found a recipe here: http://www.mrbreakfast.com/superdisp...?recipeid=1439
and thought about adapting it. But I'd love some input before giving it a try.

The process kind of sounds like the Almond Thins process.

This is what I use:

Bette's version, Not Oatmeal
I mix this in a large container and store in a large jar:
3 3/4 c Raw Wheat Bran
3 3/4 c Flax Meal
400 g (approc 4 c) Whey Protein Powder

I use about 1/3 c, water, microwave, then add DaVinci and cream, when it is cooked like oatmeal.
This makes a lot, and is easier for me than making it up so often. My DH is diabetic, and this works for him. Otherwise he is temped to eat regular cereal. This has much more fiber and protein.

I've tried it, and it was pretty good. I didn't roll mine out as thin as I should though. I think it would have been better if I did. I've also made a grapenut type cereal, which was okay, but I've really lost my taste for that kind of breakfast now, so the work doesn't seem worth it anymore.

I make this all the time. It keeps well in the freezer. It is great eaten as cereal, or mixed in yogurt or used as a crunchy topping. Even my very fussy 16 year old son eats it.

The recipe is very forgiving. Leave out what you don't like and add other things that you like.

2 1/2 Cups Rolled oats
2 Cups Textured Vegetable Protein
3/4 Cup Sunflower Seeds
3/4 Cup Coconut, Unsweetened, Shredded
1/2 cup Chopped Walnuts
1/2 Cup Chopped Almonds
1 Cup Wheat Bran
1/3 Cup Flax Seed Meal
1/3 Cup Wheat germ
3/4 Cup Whey protein Powder, (Vanilla, Designer Whey)
3/4 Cup Chopped Dried Cranberries, (Orange Flavored, Trader Joes)
1 tablespoon Cinnamon
3/4 Cup Splenda, Loose ( + or - )
1 Tablespoon Blackstrap molasses
1 cup Butter, Melted
3 Whole Egg Whites

Mix Molasses and Melted Butter in a small bowl

Mix remaining ingredients, hold out Cranberries - to be added durning last 10 minutes of baking.

Combine Butter mixture with granola mixture. Add egg whites. Mix well.

Bake at 275, stirring every 20 minutes for approx. 1 hour. Add Cranberries during the last 10 minutes of baking.
