Grape Nuts + vanilla almond milk + brown sugar.

Sooooo crunchy! I’ve been in love with Grape Nuts since I was little, I only drink weird milks because I can’t pass up anything labeled vanilla, and brown sugar? Uhh… well it’s brown, so it’s healthy. Plus, this tastes really delicious washed down with a margarita.

    I’ve been eating grape nuts & vanilla almond milk for breakfast for the past couple weeks – really is a great combo. I’ve loved grape nuts forever as well and always grab some when I see them on sale.

    I’ll have to try your addtion of brown sugar :)

    Whoa! That’s naughty! Have you tried the Grape Nuts Trail Mix Crunch cereal? No need for brown sugar in that one. It’s delightful as is! I love Grape Nuts :)

    I love that you wash it down with a margarita.

    I was never a Grape Nuts girl. This sounds weird but their uber crunchiness actually makes the roof of my mouth get all scratchy. Weird, but true.

    Have a great weekend! :)

    Sophisticated and well thought through pairing – the tanginess from the margarita will cut through the sweetness of the snack, even if it doesn’t, continue drinking:) Its Friday

    They now sell Grape Nuts flakes. I just tried them yesterday for the first time and they’re great. 110 calories per serving, 4 grams of sugar, 3 grams of fiber. Yum!

      I just saw them! I need to pick some up. But are the as crunchy?? That’s why I love Grape Nuts so much.

        Whaaaa?? I have been eating Grape Nuts Flakes since I was about 10. They are a little sweeter than Grape Nuts, definitely not as crunchy, but sooooo good… in their own way. :)
        And what a perfect idea – great alternative to granola!

    This reminds me of when I’d have cream of wheat as a kid. I’d keep refilling the brown sugar as I ate it! The milk on top added the awesome hot/cold mixture….yum now I wanna make some! Maybe I should try grapenuts…

    For me, Grape Nuts are an old person/dad food (my dad is getting up there so it’s kinda the same thing these days). My husband also loves them and I like them as a snack, too. (I remember talking to my friend about Grape Nuts once and she said something like, “I wouldn’t like that, I don’t like anything grape flavored”–and it blew my mind that she didn’t know what grape nuts were! And that she thought there might be a grape flavored cereal…)
