Grape Nuts is a
cereal that is neither a grape nor a nut. It's made from natural wheat and barley.
This unique, naturally sweet cereal was created in 1897 by C.W. Post.
The unusual name comes from the product's original formula, in which grape syrup combined with the nutty flavor of whole grain wheat flour. The grape syrup has been replaced by malted barley syrup, but the cereal is still a whole grain product.

Recipe for Grape-Nuts Crunch Bread
2 cups milk, scalded
1 cup Grape-Nuts cereal
3 cups sifted flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, well beaten
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup chopped dates
Pour hot milk over Grape-Nuts; cool. Sift flour, measure, then add baking powder, salt and sugar. Sift again. To the Grape-Nuts mixture, add the beaten egg, melted butter, and chopped dates; blend well. Add dry ingredients, stirring just enough to moisten all ingredients. Turn into a greased and floured 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Let stand for 20 minutes at room temperature, then bake at 350° for about 1 hour and 20 minutes. A clean knife inserted in the center should come out clean.
