Hot Cold Cereal Bake

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by AprilShowers

Here's another one mom used to make while us kids were growing up! Think I'll make it for my kids in the morning. Suppose the results vary depending on what type of cereal/fruit combination you use, so just choose your favorites I guess!

This was very good and a great change from a plain bowl of cold cereal. I doubled the recipe and took this to the office for our Friday breakfast. For the cereal, I used a mixture of riced krispies, whole wheat chex, cornflakes, and honey nut clusters. We topped it with non-fat plain yogurt. The possibilities are endless and I'll be making this again. Thank you AprilShowers for sharing this recipe.
