I love cereal.
We eat cereal every Sunday night for dinner.
Fall season is upon us, and last weekend we went apple picking...leaving us with 40 lbs. of apples...what can I say?...we were a little ambitious...and hungry at the time of harvest.
We set off to make caramel apples (using my favorite honey caramel recipe found HERE) and in effort to add a little more nutrition to the treat we topped to apples with Honey Bunches of Oats instead of traditional candy!
These were a HIT!! I couldn't keep tiny hands away of these!
These made the perfect afternoon snack!
Ok, and I even let my children eat these for breakfast a few days in a row. Honey Bunches of Oats are heart healthy and add 10 grams of whole grain...add that to the nutrition of an apple...and you actually have a pretty healthy breakfast or pre-game snack. I also really enjoyed letting my kiddos have these for breakfast (and snack) because they could be made a few days ahead of time. When school starts life just seems to get busier. A treat like this can be made on a Sunday afternoon and then I don't have to worry about what kind of a snack I'm going to give my kids come Monday or Tuesday before a baseball game...or school event...or just to have after school...because every single day they come home famished.
Here is a coupon to help you try this recipe out!!
