When it comes to cereal, we try to choose less sugary cereals over the ones coated in sugar and marshmallows. That doesn’t mean we don’t allow it (because we do, and even we eat it.)
There are just sometimes when a good healthy snack or good snack before bed calls for a bowl of cereal. Here are a few of our favorites as of late:
Kellogg’s Raisin Bran
Kellogg’s All Bran
Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Original & Gluten Free (Made with Brown Rice!)
The last one is one of our favorites. With the simple goodness of Rice Krispies® Gluten Free cereal, made with brown rice, help start your day right. Be your best – and enjoy a bowlful for breakfast as well as that timeless taste of homemade Rice Krispies Treats® marshmallow squares.
Which we made.
Here is one of our favorite Rice Krispy Treats recipes. This is the classic, original, no-bake dessert that is quick and easy to make.
