Sweet 'n Crunchy Mix

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dadenk

My kids love to have this for a snack and my daughter takes it to school in her lunch. I usually make 1-2 batches every time I do a OAMC session--it freezes well. I think I got this recipe from 30Day Gourmet, but I can't remember.

I really liked the taste of this. I made a batch for my DD's preschool snack. I was looking for something that wasn't cookies or pudding like most of the moms send. I used whole grain cereals, but did sub regular Cheerios for the Honey Nut and Oatmeal Teddy Grahams instead of Honey. Next time will try with those actual ingredients and maybe a smidge more butter to make coating easier. I'll let you know what the preschoolers have to say! Thanks for posting!
