We are two months in to school, and life is starting to get crazy. All of my kids are involved in multiple after school activities, and I teach piano lessons after school four days a week.  Yikes!

Because we are always running SOMEWHERE, yummy and filling snacks are a must for us.

When I was in high school, I attended an early morning church class called Seminary.  My good friend Laura used to bring breakfast along with her.  She almost always had Apple Jacks and a lemon-lime soda.  (Don't cringe, parents!)

Since Apple Jacks are made with fiber and whole grain, plus that yummy cinnamon apple taste, I decided to use them as a base for my Grab and Go snack recipe in honor of my friend.

I came up with this idea when I was shopping at Target and noticing how many varieties of snacks they had in the grocery aisles!  You can purchase all these ingredients there.  (So I walked out with throw pillows and some Halloween candy, too.  It's Target).


You will need:
Apple Jacks
Freeze-dried Strawberries
Dried Banana Chips
Fruit and Granola clusters

1.  Place 1 cup of Apple Jacks in a bowl.
2.  Add 2 tbsp each of Strawberries, Banana Chips, and Fruit/Granola clusters.
3.  Mix to combine well.
4.  Place in a baggie and fasten for a secure snack you can throw in their bag or line up in your pantry.

* Recipe size is a generous serving.  Reduce for smaller kids/appetites.

This is super-filling and delicious!  I love the combination of the fruit flavors.  Feel free to try your favorite fruits, or even add nuts or yogurt-covered raisins.
