“Crumb”-y Waste Reduction

Posted in Food, Gardening, & Agriculture,Recipes,Reduce, Reuse, Recycle by luvmyplanet on 26/11/2010

How many times have you finished that box of shredded wheat biscuits only to find a pile of crumbs at the bottom? Have you ever wondered if they could be put to good use? Well, why not use them in your baking?

Recently, I made a batch of vegan sin bars whose recipe calls for graham crackers in the crust. Not having access to certifiably vegan or organic graham crackers, I glanced over to that aforementioned collection of cereal crumbs (from Kashi Cinnamon Harvest, if you’re curious) and made a simple substitution. The final product came out just as delicious as I expected — and the crust held together perfectly!

Frugal, vegan, and waste-free!
