VERY GOOD. The only thing I did different is added toasted pecans and I toasted the cereal slightly. This is a great snack when my Husband & I travel on the road. So many variations one can add. THANK YOU.

Great Kids Snack

This was a great snack to make with children. It also was a hit with my daughter. She loved the sweetness and I loved the nutrition. Great for taking in the car on the run or for a trip.

My son absolutely loves this snack mix. I didn't have any cranberries in the house, so I used dried cherries. He can't eat enough of this. It will be a great snack to take camping or on road trips.

I keep children and they loved this quick snack! I tried it with dried cherries instead of cranberries! Good idea for groups of kids.

Simple Mix

This was a great simple mix to make. I found it easy to substitute other healthy ingredients if needed in a pinch. My kids can't get enough of this. I made it for the preschool class-it was a hit! I love how easy it is to throw together. Thank you for the shared recipe.
