Cereal for breakfast doesn’t have to be boring.  This Honey Cinnamon Snack Mix takes plain, old cereal to a whole new level.  I love it because it’s perfect for breakfast on the go or a quick snack.

Plus, it couldn’t be easier to make.  Start with Honey Nut flavored cereal and add an equal amount of another type of cereal.  Any kind you choose would be fine.This is a great way to use up the last bit of cereal you have the box, too.

To the cereal, add an equal amount of pretzels — any shape will do.

You mix the whole thing up with some butter, honey, cinnamon and vanilla.  Then bake it for a few minutes and viola!  Breakfast is ready! Once it comes out of the oven and cools you can add fun mix-ins such as yogurt covered raisins, nuts or other fruits.  Or, you can use it to make a breakfast parfait with your favorite yogurt and fruit.

It also makes a great lunchbox treat.  I like to pack it with my son’s favorite Lunch Box Sushi.  He just loves to have “sushi” for lunch!

I also include some carrots, an apple and a healthy drink. This way, he gets a little bit of sweetness without a lot of added sugar and processed ingredients.
