Homemade, Naturally Sweetened "Smacks" Cereal

Sweet cereal is one of those things that I hate loving so much. I don’t buy it often (maybe once or twice a year) because it’s terrible for you and really, doesn’t keep a belly full. One of my favorites is Kellogg’s Smacks. Does the bright red box with a green frog ring a bell? Kellogg's Smacks

These things are so wonderfully light and crunchy that you can eat half a box without blinking. Unfortunately though, the ingredient list looks like this:Kellogg's Smacks Ingredients

So I was determined to create a more natural recipe for Smacks that I could eat with fewer concerns. Yes it still contains sugar, but in natural, unprocessed forms and in minimal amounts. These taste SO LEGIT guys, and they are a piece of cake to make. If you aren’t a big cereal person, this also makes an awesome snack, just like granola. Handfuls and handfuls.
