So I am calling this Wade's Cereal because I got the receipe from Beth. It is a bit loose so you can experiment with the flavors you like. Here is what we made:
Pecans, walnuts and almonds.
1 Tablespoon of melted butter per chopped cup of nuts
Flavors of your choice: maple syrup, agave nectar, molasses, cinnamon or other spices
Finely chop nuts in equal parts. I used a food processor and really tried to chop everything about the size of granola.
Mix in butter
Add the flavors of your choice. I had three cups of nuts and 1/4 to 1/3 cup Agave Nectar and about 1/8 cup of cinnamon. For my other flavor I added 1/4 cup of molasses to 3 cups of nuts (this was way too much molasses and could probably be cut in half)
Spread nuts in a thin layer on a baking sheet or dehydrator trays.
I used our dehydrator* with the temperature set at 140 degrees and I let them dehydrate for about 9 hours. You can do the same thing in the oven.
Now for the TREAT! Just add milk (of course we mean unsweetened almond milk, or coconut, etc.) and fruit of your choice. :-)
*We dehydrate alot of food for camping and we've been making our own jerky. We did quite a bit of research before buying one. We have the Nesco American Harvest, I think it was about $70.
