School mornings are rough for many of us. Whether you are a stay-at-home, work-at-home or work outside of the house parent it’s difficult getting the entire family up, moving and out the door with different personalities at play. That’s why I love grabbing Malt-O-Meal® cereals. Malt-O-Meal® cereals make school mornings tasty, easy and affordable for the family!

My oldest son and I are usually the first ones up in the morning. He is trying to get up and ready and out the door for work while I am trying to roll the other kids and my husband up out of bed. Sounds easy enough but we have learning centers in my area and that means we have staggered start times for the schools. My 12 year-old has to be up first for his bus at 7:05. So once he’s dressed he gets a bowl of his favorite Malt-O-Meal® cereal to start eating while I go and wake up my 7 year-old. Her bus arrives at 7:33. As she comes down for breakfast and my 12 year-old is leaving for the bus I’m left dashing back upstairs to wake my 9 year-old and husband. My 9 year-old has a bus that comes at 7:54 and my husband has to be dropped off at the train station a half mile from us by 7:50. To say our mornings are a long, drawn-out affair is an understatement!

Malt-O-Meal® cereals are a life saver for our family! Malt-O-Meal® makes 34 different varieties of cereal! With that many varieties each of my family members can always find just what they want at a price I love. My oldest has been a fan of the Cinnamon Toasters for a long time now. For me, Malt-O-Meal® keeps my shopping budget on track with great prices! Pair that with this valuable coupon and you can’t beat the price! My other reason for loving Malt-O-Meal® is that with their resealable bags there’s never any waste. This ensures that each and every time we are rushing around on busy mornings that my family is getting a fresh bowl of cereal. No stale stuff for my group!

 

 

 


Star Wars Cereal – Bring The Force to Your Breakfast Table

Star Wars Cereal - Bring The Force to Your Breakfast Table

 

 

I remember as a kid watching the Star Wars movies with my dad, a certified sci-fi fanatic. I loved the movies so much I would make my mom fix my hair in Princess Leia style buns on the side of my head. When Return of the Jedi came out my sister and I each begged and pleaded until we each got our very own Ewok stuffed dolls. One of the clinchers for falling in love with my husband was that he was as much of a sci-fi geek as I was and that he was a Star Wars fan. Oh yes, The Force is strong in my family and household. So much so that we even have a child named Luke. My husband and father both walk around doing heavy breathing and then saying, Luke, I am your father.” Since our Luke is Autistic he can be very particular about his food choices. Cereal is his absolute favorite breakfast food; if it has marshmallows in it even better. So, was I excited to see that there is now Star Wars Cereal complete with marshmallow shaped bits that will bring The Force to your breakfast table!

To make Star Wars Cereal a fun treat for the family you can choose two different packages. That way your young Padawans can choose the side of the Jedi or the Sith. There is the Yoda package that has a quiz on the back of the package for fans to test their Star Wars knowledge. There is also a Darth Vader package that has a board game on the back of the package for fans to play as they enjoy their delicious cereal.

The marshmallows come in 6 fun shapes that any true Star Wars fan will appreciate:
• Yoda (green)
• R2-D2 (blue and white)
• Jedi Fighter (pink/red)
• Stormtrooper (white)
• Lightsaber (blue)
• Lightsaber (red)

Start the day off right each day and make sure that The Force is with your family! You can try new Star Wars Cereal and collect both boxes by downloading the $1 OFF coupon and heading to your local store. Hurry though because these packages will only be available for the next few months and then new Star Wars Cereal packaging will be released.

As Yoda would say… Eat Star Wars Cereal you must!

 

 

 


Cinnamon Raisin Puppy Chow

by Jennifer Wieland

I think at this point most people have tried or at least heard of Muddy Buddies, Puppy Chow or Monkey Munch, well at least in the Midwest. It is a cereal based treat that combines creamy peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar with Crispix or Chex cereal. This is a quick easy thing to make and it is a very kid-friendly cinnamon raisin puppy chow recipe. The kids can stir and shake and really enjoy feeling like they made something with just some minor adult help and supervision.

So how does mine differ from the standard recipe? First off, I changed it up by using my favorite go to peanut butter again for recipes. Yes, that’s right. Peanut Butter & Co Peanut Butter but this time Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter inspired me. Then when I noticed that there was Cinnamon Chex Cereal too I knew I had to make this new concoction. I changed up the chocolate and used white chocolate instead too and oh my goodness! This stuff is amazing! I kid you not. The flavors went perfectly together and make it less sweet than the original. At least in my opinion it’s less sweet. It is definitely one of those snacks where you can easily grab a handful to munch on only to notice that you are already went back and grabbed more. This will also make a great lunchbox treat with back-to-school right around the corner. My four year old absolutely loved it. Her praise for it came out something like this… “Mommy”…. crunch, crunch, chew…. shovel more in…. “I love”… crunch, crunch, chew…. shovel more in…. “this stuff! Thanks!” Followed up with a hug. Now that is some high praise from a preschooler!

Cinnamon Raisin Puppy Chow

Cinnamon Raisin Puppy Chow

9 c. (13.5 oz box) Cinnamon Chex
1 c. white chocolate chips
1 c. Peanut Butter & Co. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter
1/4 c. butter
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar

Measure out the Cinnamon Chex into a large bowl and set aside.

Place the white chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute and stir. Continue microwaving for 30 second intervals and stirring until completely melt.

Pour the melted mixture over the cereal and stir to coat. Then pour into a 1 gallon sized Ziploc baggie and pour the powdered sugar over the top. Seal the bag and shake, shake, shake until everything is coated.

Spread on wax paper to cool and then store in an airtight container.
