    May I suggest that you include some nutrition facts with your recipes. This recipe, for instance, contains a huge amount of sugar and fat and you are touting it as a breakfast alternative

    • Don’t forget it’s 8 servings. You can also cut back on the sugar entirely and it will still be sweet but not overly so.

    I love to all your ideas and recipes here on Joy of Kosher…Thank you sooo much!
    My husband has been wanting a fun snack/portable breakfast for awhile and this is it! Going to make it today. :)

    • OH Naomi! Thanks, thanks thanks!!! So happy you found something you think he will enJOY. See my note in the comment above about the sugar and of course you can use other cereals you may already have in the house ie: Rice Krispies etc…
