Grape Nuts

I had to share this recipe becuase I love Grape Nuts cereal, but I can't fork out the cash to buy 'em. My father-in-law found this recipe a few months ago, and it's pretty good. Plus, it's a whole lot cheaper.

3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups buttermilk
2 tsp. vanilla

Mix ingredients thoroughly and spread in a greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Cool completely. At this point, it looks like and smells like a cake. Once the cake has cooled, cut it into pieces and put it in a food processor to make crumbs. Don't process too long or the mixture will become gummy. Spread this mixture into 2 jelly roll pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. After 1 hour in the oven, turn off the oven. Leave the grape nuts in the pan and in the oven overnight.

In the morning: Wahoo. Grape Nuts.
