Healthy Food Snack of the Month

 

To help promote healthy lifestyle and fitness goals we will have a snack or fitness feature in each newsletter this year.

 

Churro Cheerios™ Snacks

 

4 C. Cheerios™ cereal
1/4 C. butter
1/4 C. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Melt the butter over medium heat in a large skillet.

When butter is completely melted, add cereal and stir to coat.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until cereal starts to turn golden brown.  Watch it carefully because it will burn quickly if you leave it on the heat too long.

Dump the hot, buttery cereal into a large bowl and add sugar and cinnamon.  Stir well to coat.

Serve immediately.

 

Have a great October!

 

Sincerely,
