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:
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.
