Homemade Cereal Flakes

At least I'm not in denial that I have gone completely mad in my search for homemade, minimally processed foods.  But when I saw this recipe in a new Mark Bittman cookbook, I knew it was a must try.
This cereal has a wonderful texture and crunch.  It is hardy, yet delicate, and not too sweet.

Here is my adaptation Mark Bittman's recipe...

Cereal Flakes:
((Printable Version))
1/2 c. cornmeal
1 1/4 c. whole wheat flour (plus more for dusting)
1/4 c. ground flax seed
2 T. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 T. vegetable oil
1/4 c. water

Combine the first five ingredients in a food processor and pulse until combined.

Add the oil and 1/4 cup water until it resembles damp sand.

Keep adding more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the mixture just starts to hold together.

Pour mixture out onto a large cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with a light dusting of whole wheat flour, cover with wax paper, and start rolling.  Roll to at least 1/4 inch to an 1/8 inch thick.  (I like it a little thicker.)

Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes until the mixture is dry, crisp, and cracked.

Break into "flakes" or grind in a food processor.  Store in a sealed container for up to a week.  (But it won't last that long.)

I hope you'll give it a try!
(Great to make with the kids.)

*Please note: I tried doubling this recipe and it totally overwhelmed my food processor, cookie sheets, and oven.  At the most I'd say you can make 1 1/2 batches at a time.

  21. After looking at their reviews it was apparent this company set the standard for packers and movers in chennai. It was painless from the start. After speaking with one of their representatives on the phone I knew I was in good hands. What you'd think was the most difficult and stressful process turned out to be a breeze. They provided me with a quote over the phone and assured me there were no hidden costs. Nowadays it's difficult to find anything that doesn't have surcharges or additional fees. Am I right?
