Breakfast Cereal Alternative: Homemade Grapenuts

Homemade grapenuts are a staple in most Amish and Mennonite homes.


7 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup molasses
2 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup butter
1 Tbsp. salt
2 Tbsp. soda

Mix dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients. You may need to add a little more buttermilk, but this should be thick. Pour into two greased 9 x 13 inch pans. Bake for 1 1/2 hours at 450 degrees F. Let cool, then crumble and toast/dry on on cookie sheets. This should be completely dry. Store in air tight containers. Serve with milk.

God bless,
