8 C. old fashion oats
3C. wheat germ or 2 pkg. shredded wheat (big squares)
4C. bran flakes
1C maple syrup
Mix the wet ingredients together and bring to a boil in the microwave and then add the vanilla
Pour over the oatmeal-flake mixture and put it on a jelly roll pan---Cook in the oven at 300 for 6-8 mins. stir it and cook another 6-8 mins.
Note: I half the recipe and use the shredded wheat--cooking time depends on you and your oven---I like mine soft so I only cook for 6 mins
Enjoy it with yogurt, as your cereal, fruit and add ins are always good too (coconut, nuts, raisins, craisins ect.)
