Mint Chip Apr 22, 2007 05:48 PM

I don't like eating grape nuts plain as cereal, any one have good recipes or suggestions on how to use them? Thanks!

    They are great on top of yogurt. My So mixes it with other cereals for texture.

      I agree! I ran out of granola one day and used Grape Nuts instead. It's a heartier addition and now I eat them every morning!

      Grapenuts pudding!!! Simple and comforting, it's one of my childhood faves... :)

        Have you heated them up with milk? They are pretty good that way - I add berries and a touch of brown sugar. I also love grape nut pudding.

          It's good for breading stuff, or for making healthy crusts for cheesecake or pies. You can mix it into patties or loaves for fiber, too.

          It's also really good stirred into ice cream or parfaits. Trust me.

            Grape Nut Bread
            I have not used this recipe, but I have used the one in my Grange cookbook which is similar. That one differs in that it only has 1 C of sugar, 4 C flour, 4 t baking powder!!!, 1 t baking soda and 1 t salt.
            You might use the recipe from recipezaar, but think about that sugar!!

              Grape-nut ice cream is popular in New England.

                Yes, it's meant to simulate brown bread ice cream here in the Midwest- one of my favorite flavors of ice cream of ALL TIME!

                  Grapenut Pudding! One of life's great pleasures.

                    Heat them up with some milk and honey. Amazing!

                      Bran muffins. Toss some prunes in there and it'll clean you out like a Ferrari. You'll be "movin" like Ginger Rogers. No lie, GI.

                        my great grandmother used to put it on top of vanilla ice cream and black raspberry ice cream - very yummy and great texture

                          Mix peanut butter with a *little* milk and confectioners sugar, form into balls, roll on Grape Nuts, munch!

                            Sprinkle them on top of a salad. They add lots of crunch.

                              LOL Dang it, jbyoga, I was going to say that, so here goes... load up some shotgun shells and use them to keep varminst off your land.

                              Seriously, my wife loves it in yogurt. I have also mixed them in oatmeal.

                                When I used to eat yogurt, a favorite was to top my lemon yogurt with grapenuts...Delicious!

                                    Sprinkle them on vanilla ice cream and pour maple syrup on top.
