READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by theAmateurPastryChef

My dad died when I was six, but one thing that I will always remember from him is this breakfast that he created himself. It is a sweet way to start your day, especially if you like peanut butter.

We don't get shredded wheat in my country anymore (sadly), but I tried this on Weet-bix, using honey as my sweetener and I have to say, I love your Dad's "outside of the box" take on cereal - this was great! A wonderful way to get some extra protein into a quicker-than-quick, hot breakfast. So tasty - a definite winner and a keeper for me. Thank you for posting this recipe - I love it :)
