You’ve searched the Googles for “cereal clusters recipe” and here you are. Or, you are a loyal reader and you’ve eaten a bowl of cereal and wished it had more of those honey-nut-vanilla clusters. Either way, you are in for a treat!
This vanilla nut granola became labeled as the “clusters-from-the-box” by my son. Just this week he took a container full as a “snack” to Disney.
Here is the kicker: he doesn’t like nuts! How crazy is that?! Nuts! Yup. As far as he knows, these are cereal clusters and not nuts. My husband and his sister tried to tell him that these were nuts and he said: “These are not nuts. I don’t like nuts.” Can you believe that?
As far as I know… this is ONLY nuts! I eat them over my bowl of strawberries and cream or in a bowl with milk instead of cereal. Since going grain free, I miss the occasional “crunch” from a bowl of cereal… but these are delicious and satisfying.
Of course, I’m not the only fan… Baby G also is. They are perfectly sweet and delicious with the right amount of crunch. This isn’t like every other granola recipe out there… once you make this you’ll be a convert for life!
Instead of having some fruit topping my cereal, I know top my fruit with my “cereal.” I like this a lot better. Wether you serve this with blueberries or strawberries, the delicious factor is all there.
I can’t take all the credit for this recipe. I used this recipe from Against all Grain’s cookbook and changed it to my desired sweetness and nut preference (I found hers to be delicious but a little too sweet and I like my nut mix a little different). Thank you Danielle for having awesome recipes I can build on!
