Did You Know ??

Contrary to popular (and my own) beliefs, cereals are not for breakfast. They can make some pretty delicious snacks,too! Both Blissfully Berry and Cocoa Sensation cereal  are great with milk or yogurt, but add a tasty twist in easy recipes like Crunch Chocolate-Banana Sweet-n-Salty Snack Mix and PB & Berry Blast Snack Mix (recipes below).  Each serving of cereal brings 17 grams of whole grains and 5 grams of fiber — all without artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup, egg, dairy or corn. Want to know how to make one or both of these tasty snack treats? Check out the recipes below!
