Cinnamon Chex Trail Mix Bars

gluten-free-breakfast-bars-hero (1)

I recently developed this recipe for the Chex website – it’s so good!  Not too sweet, not too salt, not too crumbly, and not too gooey… it’s the perfect texture and taste.  I love the combination of Cinnamon Chex and pretzels!  So good.  Oh, and it’s gluten-free.

 

Sweet Potatoes in the Slow Cooker by Super Healthy Kids

Sweet Potato Slow Cooker Final copy

I’m making this now!  I am pumped.  I recently realized how much better baked potatoes taste compared to microwaved ones (I know, I know…).  My issue isn’t how long the baked potatoes take in the oven; it’s how crazy hot it makes my entire house.  With the slow cooker, that’s not a problem.  I hope it’s delicious – I’m sure it will be.  Everything from Super Healthy Kids is good.

    Quiche is really defined by the pie crust. What you’ve made is more of a mini-fritatta. Add bread chunks and it’s called a stratta. These details are important for an egg-lover like myself!

    Yum, those granola bars look fantastic. I would have never thought to put pretzels in my granola bars.

    For some reason when I click on the links for the Chex trail mix bars, I get directed to an American Express website! They do look tasty though in your photos!

    Thanks for sharing Caitlyn! The sweet potatoes in the slow cooker almost taste like they have butter- they are so smooth!

    I tried sweet potatoes in the crockpot last week. So disappointing! They were TOO sweet/mushy. We had a couple of bites and threw the rest away. Maybe mine were overdone? Not sure. I guess the standard one hour in the oven or on the grill is the way to go.

    Love the idea of making the sweet potatoes in the crock pot! I also think that cooking them in the oven makes them taste better than in the microwave.

    This afternoon we got a rotisserie chicken from Publix and my husband made stock. It made the whole house smell so good!

    Thanks so much for the recipes! I always love when I hear someone say they’ve actually tried it AND liked it (and it wasn’t overly complicated). I’m pinning to my already-full Pinterest board. :-)
