Recipe Features! Cinnamon Roll Chex & Granola

Those of you who have been around a while know that on Fridays I post a recipe of some sort. Today I'm featuring two recipes, from other bloggers, that I have tried. 

First up, Cinnamon Roll Chex Mix.  I found the recipe over at Chef in Training. Kara from Creations by Kara did a guest post there and share this amazing treat.

I have to say that I loved it. It is the perfect crunchy mix. It did not last long at our house.

Here's how mine turned out. Until it cooled and I bagged it up, I could not quit eating it. 

 The second recipe is a healthy treat. Granola! I've seen lots of granola recipes and always wanted to try making it. When Lori from The Stonybrook House linked up her World's Best Granola, I knew I had to try it.

Here are the reasons I really like this recipe: 

It's simple {not an extensive list of ingredients}

not overly sugary {isn't that weird coming out of my mouth, you all know I love my sweets} 

and so yummy! {I have it with yogurt and it feels like I'm having dessert instead of a healthy snack}

 To top it off you mix it up in the pan you bake it in, so there's almost no dishes to do.

I've made this twice, neither time did I add the ground flax seed {only because I keep forgetting to buy it.} The second time I made it I used 7 grain cereal, instead of whole oats. It was just as good but was chunkier, and needed to be cooked a little longer to get it crunchy. 
Head on over to The Stonybrook House for the recipe
