I was asked to write a blog post about either the health benefits of Cheerios or using Cheerios in a healthified recipe. Although I LOVE to create recipes and racked my brain on what I could use them for, I could not come up with one thing better that eating a big bowl of Cheerios for breakfast! I was able to make a healthified Peach Crisp using Cheerios back in 2011. Find the recipe HERE.
Check out my cutie with her Cheerios and the comics. A match made in heaven.
And the best part about Cheerios? General Mills does not use GMOs in their Cheerios. This is from their website, "We don’t use genetically modified ingredients in original Cheerios. Our principal ingredient has always been whole grain oats – and there are no GMO oats. We use a small amount of corn starch in cooking, and just one gram of sugar per serving for taste. But our corn starch comes from non-GMO corn, and we use only non-GMO pure cane sugar."
LOVE IT (and so do my kids)!
