Homemade Cereal Flakes

Cereal Flakes: (From A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock and Roll)

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 300F 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.)
