Back-to-school means busy days. Make a batch of this S’mores Granola made with HONEY MAID® S’mores so you always have a snack at the ready.
It’s almost back-to-school time! My son is heading to kindergarten this year, and he’s so excited! We’re buying a backpack and a lunch box, school supplies and school uniforms, not to mention name tag stickers to put on everything. And after all that, I started thinking of budget-friendly ideas for lunches and snacks.
A favorite snack of all members of our family is granola. It’s easy to grab-and-go, and the flavor can be customized to each person’s taste. And best of all, it’s easy on the wallet. Take a family trip to Walmart to stock up on everyone’s favorite Post cereal flavors.
It starts with just five simple ingredients: rolled oats, brown sugar, butter, honey, and vanilla. From there, Post Consumer Brands has a wide variety of cereals, located in the cereal aisle of your local Walmart, to add to your granola. If you don’t all want the same flavor, you can make the granola, divide it into containers, and customize it to each family member!
We’re not quite ready to let go of summer by the time school starts, so I added HONEY MAID® S’mores cereal, with squares of graham crackers, marshmallow bits and chocolate cereal pieces, to the granola. It provides all the flavor of s’mores without the mess!
Enjoy this granola as an after-school snack, or pour some into a plastic bag to tuck into child’s lunchbox have as a snack at school. Our, pour some in a bowl, pour on some milk, and enjoy for breakfast!
