Top Review by Carolyn Kamberlane

These turned out great! We can't buy Grape Nuts where I live, and I love them so I was eager to try this out. I have a flour grinder so I ground up some fresh wheat flour and soaked it overnight in the buttermilk. I had to cook it for almost an hour before it was crisp enough to grate in the food processor. The second time around I made a double batch. Thanks for sharing this!
