Snacking, Baking, or Breakfast with Honey Bunches of Oats (Up for Grabs!)

by Pam on May 29, 2012

The contest is closed. Please check the rafflecopter below for the winner.

I don’t want it.” That’s the statement my children usually greet me with when I try to tempt them to eat breakfast. Never mind breakfast is the most important meal of the day, never mind that children who eat breakfast perform better in school. “I’m not hungry” or “I can’t eat this early in the morning,” is their mantra.  I’ve found the easiest way to get them motivated to eat breakfast is to keep a box of cereal on hand. It’s fast, it’s light, and it’s tasty.

Bryan was the one who discovered Honey Bunches of Oats. Searching for something different for breakfast, he found a box of the Honey Bunches of Oats with Strawberries and was hooked.  He asked me to purchase a box every week. Not being a fan of having strawberries in my cereal, I switched to a rotation of the cinnamon bunches,the  honey roasted and the almond varieties.  With ten different blends of Honey Bunches of Oats, we can switch them up and not grow bored.

Each blend of Honey Bunches of Oats contains 10 grams of whole grains per servings, and 0 grams of transfat, saturated fat, and cholesterol.  For someone, like Bryan, who is watching his diet, this offers a healthy  breakfast choice.  While I’ve been discussing breakfast, Honey Bunches of Oats can be used as the basis of any meal or for snacks.  Crush the cereal into pieces and use it as a coating for homemade chicken nuggets or  fish fillets.  Try  it for a topping on pineapple or sweet potato casseroles. The list is endless.

Here’s a money saving tip: Each box of cereal always has a small amount left that is not enough for a serving.  Place the leftovers into a container and store in the freezer. Use it as a topping for parfaits or ice cream.  Want to discover new ways to use cereal? Check out the recipes here. 

Win It!
One person will receive 2 coupons for a free box of Honey Bunches Of Oats in the flavor of your choice.
