What isn’t celebrated these days? Did you know TODAY is National Cereal Day! My family loves Cascadian Farm Organic cereals (and their other products too). One thing I personally love about them is they’re local for me in the Seattle area; we went to their farm and had ice cream this past summer. I also love their ingredients list, as it’s real food with no unknown, “secret” foods. As I say this, I have to admit I love to indulge, like anyone!
For National Cereal Day we should think outside the box! I love a fist full of cereal from the box. You can breakdown some of those sugars by eating a bowl full with your favorite milk (we drink raw milk in my house). However, with spring nipping at our heels and thoughts of summer in my head, I can only think school bake sales and s’mores. So let’s combine the two for CEREAL BARS!
S’more Cascadian Farm Organic Graham Crunch Bars
¼ cups butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
1 box (9.6 oz) NEW Cascadian Farm Organic Graham Crunch cereal
1 package (10 oz) dark chocolate chips
1. Melt the butter over low heat in a large pan.
2. Add mallows and stir continuously, with a wooden spoon to prevent sticking, until fully melted.
3. Removed from heat. Pour in Cascadian Farm Organic Graham Crunch and chocolate chips. Stir until combined and all parts are gooey.
4. Allow to cool. Cut into desired pieces. Allow to stiffen up.
Now you can enjoy one piece and wrap the rest of the school bake sale. OR if spring is really lagging in your neck of the wood, get the fireplace going and surprise your family with these s’mores; it’s be just like camping!
Cascadian Farm Organic’s NEW Graham Crunch is kid tested. Daddy tested. Mom tested and approved. (AND school will also love Cascadian Farm Organic as they have a Box Top for Education to support PTA’s fundraising efforts.)
