Bake for around 30 to 50 min. Halfway through baking, flip the cereal around with a spatula to ensure even cooking. The cereal should be slightly golden brown when finished.

Remove from the oven and allow the cereal to cool so it can crisp further.

After the cereal has cooled and you are ready to eat, add in your favorite dried fruit or chocolate chunks.

Enjoy the cereal with your favorite milk or dairy free milk!
