I am NOT a morning person. During the week it’s usually instant oatmeal or cereal with fruit and milk for breakfast. My husband also tends to eat a bowl of cereal before bed. Needless to say, our pantry is always stocked with cereal. Chex has always been a favorite. Recently they came out with a new flavor: Gluten Free Vanilla Chex. This type of cereal is what we call a “weekend cereal”. Even though the Hubs usually makes us a nice breakfast on the weekends, there we still eat cereal on occasion. This is when we let the kids have something a little sweeter. Vanilla Chex are really sweet which makes them more of a treat. In fact, they’re great in a variety of different recipes including this one:
