It’s time to stock the pantry and fridge with healthy after school snacks, and things to pack in lunchboxes. My littlest loves to get in the kitchen and help so I try to find easy recipes for her. Plus, if it is Gluten Free & Dairy Free we love it because that means everyone at my house can enjoy!
Chex™ Cereal is BOGO this week (8/28 – 9/3/2014) at Publix®. This is a super time to stock up for breakfast, or just to try these great Chex™ recipes!
Because they only take 15 minutes to make, they are an easy way to provide your kids with a homemade lunchbox treat that tastes great! Plus, since Chex™ cereals are “buy one, get one free” this week at Publix®, the recipes are also a great value.
We gathered our ingredients and got busy!
I let her do all the hard work…in a princess dress I might add. Is there any other way to cook? Watch this video below to see just how easy these are to make! You can find the recipe for these Chex™ Apple Almond Bars here or listed below.
- 4cups Cinnamon Chex™ or Rice Chex™ cereal
- ⅔ cup chopped dried apples
- ½ cup sliced almonds
- ½ cup sweetened dried cranberries
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
