Have you ever been stuck in a car traveling away from home or shopping for that perfect dress and all of a sudden your kids get hungry? Your 8 year old all of a sudden turns into a monstrous 2 year old and you swear it is the most disturbing thing you’ve ever seen until you look to the left and see that your husband has turned into a monstrous toddler himself. This is what always happens to my family when hunger takes over their mind, body and soul. One way that I try to prevent the hunger tantrums is by having SNICKERS® Almond Granola Mix ready when needed. This is a simple recipe that is easy to take with you anywhere that you go and there are very few ingredients.

SNICKERS® Almond Granola Mix

SNICKERS® Almond Granola Mix is a simple recipe that uses few ingredients and it’s also a recipe that allows you to incorporate different mix-ins. I chose to use cranberries, sunflower seeds and SNICKER® Almond. The next time I make SNICKERS® Granola Mix I will use Peanut Butter Squares so that my family can enjoy a different flavor when we are away from home and hunger strikes!

SNICKERS® Variety Bag

 Whenever I know that our family will be traveling away from home or that we will be out running errands for a long period of time it is my job to bring the kid’s official snack bag. When I forget to bring this bag it can get really ugly. Often times we have at least 3-4 little girls with us and my husband, so I try to make sure that I pack a variety of snacks that include fruit but also delicious snacks that have a sweet and salty flavor. The SNICKERS® Almond Granola Mix is not only a quick snack to prepare but it also has a great flavor that not only adults love but that kids love and keep coming back for.
