It was just a couple of weeks ago when I found out that General Mills added a new variety to their Chex cereal line-up. The new variety is….
I was excited about the new Blueberry Chex because I am a huge fan of anything blueberry. I don’t eat a lot of breakfast cereal, but it is nice to know that there are more and more gluten-free options available every day. I didn’t waste anytime breaking open this box and eating a few handfuls of cereal. Very blueberry-y! Kind of sweet for my taste, but excellent with some unsweetened almond milk and fresh blueberries to dilute the sugar a bit. Surprisingly each serving only has 6 grams of sugar, which is less than I expected after tasting the cereal.
Check out the recipe below for a fun twist on an old classic.
Blueberry-Lemon Muddy Buddies
- 1 box Chex™ blueberry flavored cereal
- 1 1/4 cups white vanilla baking chips
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
