Worth Getting Up in the Morning!

This!! Yum!!

It's like a nutty Sugar Smacks, but without all the sugar smacking you.  A very generous - 1 cup! - filling serving has only 220 calories (add 40 calories with 4 ounces of skim milk).  It's nice to be able to finish reading the comics in the morning and still have cereal left!

7g total fat (1g saturated), 5mg sodium, 160mg potassium, 35g total carbohydrate, 3g fiber, 11g sugar, 5g protein.   I can hear my nutritionist cheer!  2% calcium, 8% iron -- all before adding milk.

Ingredients:  Rolled oats, puffed kamut, cane sugar, almonds, pecans, brown rice syrup, puffed spelt, puffed brown rice, canola oil, molasses, natural flavors, soy lecithin and mixed tocopherols for freshness.

Bonus:  There is a recipe on the side for Maple Peanut Butter Squares!

The 30 ounce box, with two bags, is only $7.55.   Next time I'm back at Costco, I'm grabbing another one.

Grab it while you can! My Costco still has it on the shelves. I'm sure it will be back next year. But in the meantime, I am buying two boxes at a time.
