How to Make Your Own Cereal


Sure, we all love a fancy breakfast now and then, but the truth is, we’re quite happy starting every day with a hearty bowl of cereal.

But this simple meal can run a little pricey. If you’re eating cereal for breakfast seven days a week, and maybe for dinner every now and then (guilty), you may find yourself going through almost two boxes a week.

Cereal is actually super easy to make yourself. For about $15 a month, you can customize your morning breakfast bowl, using only six ingredients!


All you need is the base (bran flakes are perfect), granola (I chose honey-flavoured, but you can choose cinnamon, hemp, cranberry, coconut, etc.), two toasted nut options (such as chopped walnuts or sliced almonds), and two dried fruit options (like cranberries, strawberries, or blueberries).


The result? Endless options for a healthy, nutty, crunchy, delectable breakfast (or dinner) cereal!
