Granola Marshmallow Treat Recipe (+ Giveaway) Recipe

I think I've said it on numerous occasions; our family has a sweet tooth (can an entire family share one tooth?). We always have sugary snacks available on the kitchen counter. One of the girls’ favorites are Rice Krispies treats, but today since I had a bag of granola on hand, I decided to substitute the granola in place of the puffed rice. The granola is called “College Staple”, and I got it from Sarah at Nuts About Granola. It’s similar to her “Plain Jane” product, but with dried cranberries. It’s almost like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in granola form. The texture is not crunchy and rather tastes similar to a chewy cookie, which is perfect for the consistency of the marshmallow treats.

The best part of these sweet treats is that they're one of the easiest treats to make. It took me less than 10 minutes to make them. I also added chocolate-covered sunflower seeds; they paired wonderfully with the dried cranberries in the College Staple granola.  Don't forget to enter our giveaway!

Nuts About Granola (College Staple) Product Review Recipe
As a frenzied college student juggling a heavy course load, two jobs, and a social life, food is almost always an afterthought for me. That doesn’t mean I don’t care about what I eat; on the contrary, I am constantly looking for simple yet tasty treats. My recent addiction has been frozen yogurt. It’s quick, easy, healthy, and now thanks to all of the shops popping up around campus, it’s social, too! However, like all addictions, it’s burned quite the hole in my wallet. Solution: buy your favorite tart yogurt at your grocery store, and instead of paying exorbitant prices by the ounce for toppings, get a bag of granola.

Fruit and Yogurt Parfait Recipe (Grapes and Granola Parfait) Recipe

Fruit and yogurt parfaits are a great breakfast food or late-night snack. They’re very filling and are easy to make. You can use pretty much any fruit you have on hand. For this particular parfait, I used Kyoho grapes. The sweetness, meaty flesh and softness of the fruit contrast well with the crunchy granola. I added Concord grape jelly to repeat the same flavor and condensed milk to give the yogurt a velvety texture.

The result is a tasty, yet still healthy treat. I can't get enough of it. We're stilling make our own yogurt weekly, and the girls just helped me make granola last weekend, but we're already running our of both. Our family is addicted!

How to Make Granola

10.04.10 by Jackie

Granola is a fabulous breakfast food and snack our family enjoys a lot. Making granola is incredibly easy and is a great way to get children interested in cooking. The basic ingredients for granola are rolled oats, nuts, dried fruits and sweeteners. The girls decided to add puffed rice and bake-dried bananas. The little ones stirred the grain mixture and the big girls baked it until crispy.

It will come as no surprise to regular readers, but our family loves to eat. To satisfy our appetite between meals, we always have sweet or savory snack available in the kitchen. Granola makes a healthy and flavorful snack that everyone in the family enjoys. It’s packed with folic acid, which is especially beneficial for women. Plus, you can pack the granola in zip-top bags for your children's school snack or when you're on-the-go.

Cherry and Berry Yogurt Granola Parfait Recipe

Granola parfait has the perfect components to start the day: the crunch of the granola, the creaminess of the yogurt and the sweetness of the fruits. Most important, this will keep you full until lunch time.

I've been married for almost five years, and I think that cooking is the best way to say 'I love you'. It might sound sappy but I love seeing my hubby's smile in the morning when I bring him breakfast in bed. Make this for someone special in your life, and I guarantee they will appreciate it.
