cereal options?

Does anyone make their own cereal - besides oatmeal and granola?

I'm looking for a cold cereal recipe that I can make at home. I already do granola and muesli, but I was hoping for a little variety without having to buy boxes at the store.

When you look at the different types of cereal available, I wouldn't even know where to begin to try and copy some of them!

I've always wanted to make this but haven't! Maybe when it cools off more! LMK if you make it & how it turns out!
homemade grape nuts
3 cups graham flour or whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ (or omit wheat germ and use 1/2 cup additional flour)
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups buttermilk, sour milk or kefir
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl.
Beat until smooth.
Spread the dough on 2 large greased cookie sheets.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
While still warm, break the dough into chunks and grate it or process briefly in blender, about one cup at a time.
Return to 250 F oven to crisp for 20-30 minutes.
Store in airtight container.
Serve for breakfast with milk.

I don't normally like grapenuts, but homemade versions are always so much better anyway
I wonder if I could replace the brown sugar with honey...
