The snacks are at an all time low in the house.
Not wanting to buy fatty or salty foods, we have been bypassing the snack isle in the market for a good part of the summer.
Fresh fruits are great when we can get them on sale, but they are gone quickly.
So I thought I would make up a batch of granola.
Crunchy, sweet, and full of good stuff for the inards.
Measuring the ingredients, I found myself to be short about half the amount of oats I needed.
With the honey/oil mixture all measured out, I really needed those dry ingredients to keep the recipe balanced.
So, into the bowl went some rice krispies cereal.
I wasn't sure how they were going to hold up in the oven or how good they would be to the tastebuds.
Well, I must say, they worked.
They add a different "crunch" from what we are used to, but mixed in with the oats and seeds and of course, the mini chocolate chips, they are quite tasty.
It worked in a pinch, and actually it cuts the cost of making this snack since they are cheaper to buy than the oats.
One snack in the larder - hopefully it satisfies the snacking urge for a few days!
