Healthy Home Made Honey Nut Cherrio Snack
This is a High Carb snack so if this scares you off then consider it for when you are doing your endurance running or perhaps great for the endurance athletes out there training for ultras and ironmans! Maybe you make it for your kids just like I love to! They really do enjoy it and so do I to the point I try to stay away from it ;-) Great for on the go sort of like a trail mix! So why is this is so healthy? Lots of carbs, throw in some healthy oils and touch of protein then you can feel satisfied!
4 cups of Honey Nut Cherrios
1 cup of Quick oats
1/2 cup of ground peanuts
1/2 cup of mixed nuts whole
1/4 cup of flaxseed meal
1/2 cup of unsweetened finely shredded coconut
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
1/2 cup honey
There is no order to how you combine, then stir and bake at 375 gently stirring every few minutes to avoid them being burned and then take out and let them fully cool and they stick together nicely for a crunchy, salty snack!
Feel free to toss in dried fruit like raisins and cranberry's and maybe even some mini chocolates for the kids!
Almost a cup of this is calorically dense but filling at about 235 calories which consists about 35 carbs, 5 protein and the rest in healthy fats.
