Cereal is surprisingly expensive relative to the cost of the individual ingredients. Why not make your own healthy cereal at a fraction of the price? Here a variety of whole grains, almonds, and dried fruits make a sure-to-please combination. Store the cereal mix in an airtight container in the freezer to keep it fresh.
|4 cups||thick-cut old fashioned rolled or steel-cut oats|
|3/4 cup||unsalted raw sunflower seeds|
|1/2 cup||wheat germ|
|1/2 cup||oat bran|
|1 teaspoon||ground cinnamon|
|1 teaspoon||ground nutmeg|
|1 cup||Earthbound Farm Organic Dried Cranberries|
|1/2 cup||Earthbound Farm Organic Raisins|
|1/2 cup||Earthbound Farm Organic Dried Plums (chopped)|

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir to blend. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for maximum freshness.
To make individual servings, bring 1-1/4 cups of water to a boil in a small pan. Add 1/2 cup of dry cereal mix and a pinch of salt. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cereal is thickened to your liking, 8 to 12 minutes. Serve hot with maple syrup.
