  • In a small bowl stir together the water, vanilla, and, if desired, the stevia sweetener. Add the water mixture to the flour mixture; stir until dough comes together. If necessary, use your clean hands to knead a few times in the bowl to get the dough to combine.

  • Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Turn out dough onto parchment paper. Top with another sheet of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin and rolling from center to edges, roll dough into a 12-inch square (do not worry if dough cracks slightly). Remove top piece of parchment. In a tiny bowl combine sugar and the 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over dough. Using clean hands, press in lightly.

  • Bake about 30 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Turn off oven; let cereal sit in oven about 2 hours or until nearly cool (do not cover while it cools). Transfer baking sheet to a wire rack. Cool about 30 minutes more or until completely cooled. Break into small pieces. If desired, serve with milk and berries.
