The BEST cereal ... for real

Take one recipe for "Lazy Granola."

Instead of using 7 cups of just granola, mix and match pretty much ANYTHING (Rice Chex, Cheerios, wheat germ, lecithin - WHATEVER!). Basically, you can use up the last little bit in the bottom of those cereal boxes until you reach 7 cups of some sort of whole grain goodness.

Finish making the recipe as described (see link above for that). You can use a full cup of honey and scratch the brown sugar. I'm just saying.

Then practice saying, "OH DEAR GOD, THIS IS SOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOD!" Do NOT start eating until you are prepared to say this phrase approximately 400 times in succession.

NOTE: It is not against the law to eat it all up while it is still burning hot, instead of letting it sit all day or all night in the oven. I do not, however, accept any responsibility for serious injury to any of my readers.

Good! Now there will be a use for the bottom half of the box of GoLean crunch that my husband doesn't like. Top half only. *sigh*
