Jamie says: I bought a box of Publix Nutty Nuggets (the generic brand of Grape Nuts) as a potential cereal to use for a project. Although I did not end up choosing this cereal for the project, I was intrigued by the recipe on the side of the box. So, I tried it out. It was quite easy. In a pan, I melted Smart Balance Omega 3 spread (the recipe had called for butter). I then added cinnamon, light brown sugar, honey, and the Nutty Nuggets and heated it for about 8 minutes. The sweetened Nutty Nuggets tasted a lot more palatable than the plain cereal; and were actually quite tasty- almost like a granola bar. From here, I made the recipe my own. I covered the banana with a 4 oz container of Dannon Activia Vanilla Yogurt, and then topped it with peanuts, raisins, and the Nutty Nugget recipe. Into the freezer it went that afternoon, and out it came for breakfast. It was so good and really filling. I would recommend slicing the banana first so that you don’t break the plastic bowl trying to cut the banana (oops).
