18 Dec 2012
Can someone please tell me where 2012 went? It has been such a productive year and I am grateful for all of the abundance it has brought to us.
I have been a brand ambassador with Attune Foods for one whole year! I started this partnership with a love for their cereals and I have to say ~ every month has been a blast creating recipes using their high quality and very tasty foods.
This crunchy mix is simple to prepare. It answers to
“Mom I’m hungry”
“What’s for breakfast?”
“What healthy snack can I bring to the gym?”
“What can I prepare for a large group of guests for a memorable brunch?”
“What can I have that is good for me?”
This is it my friends.
Dig in and enjoy!
In this recipe all you need to do is grab your favorite Attune Foods cereals.
You can use the three I used. Add more or less. Or change them up to suit your tastes.
All will turn out great no matter what your choice.
Enjoy this crispy creation in a comforting bowl of cereal with milk.
Also make a layered parfait with it.
Need a great trail mix? Bring this granola. Add some more nuts for a greater energy boost.
Love chocolate? Toss in some chocolate chips when it cools down for kicks.
Cereal Granola Crunch
DIET TYPE: Dairy-Free
1 cup (34 g) Erewhon Corn Flakes
1 cup (65 g) Uncle Sam cereal
1/2 cup (30 g) Erewhon Brown Rice Cereal
1/2 cup (60 g) chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans are great)
1/2 cup (55 g) fruit sweetened dried cranberries
1/2 cup (55 g) unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup (120 ml) pure maple syrup (I prefer darker, stronger flavored grade B)
2 tablespoons (30 ml) unrefined coconut oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of fine sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 F with the rack in the middle.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Prepare a cookie sheet with a Silpat liner or parchment paper. Bring maple syrup and coconut oil to a boil. Remove it from the heat immediately. Stir in cinnamon and salt. Carefully pour the maple mixture over the cereal mix. Combine well with a spatula. Layer the granola/cereal mix on the cookie sheet in a single layer. Bake until crispy, about 15 minutes. Let the granola cool and break big pieces apart with your hands if needed.
If you are adding chocolate chips, add them once the granola is cool so they don’t melt.
