My New Favorite Snack.
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.

ha! the margarita for sure, it’s friday! and the margarita will give you the fruit portion, limes
Never tried grape nuts, but this sounds good~it must be if you like it!
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 :)
oh my gosh…i went to visit my best friend in portland last week and her boyfriend made the most amazing margaritas that i’ve ever had in my life. he used limeade, fresh oranges, limes, and lemons….then one shot tirple sec and one shot tequila in each glass. i almost died.
Anything tastes better when washed down with a margarita. True fact.
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 :)
You rock. I love that snack too :D
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! :)
Doesn’t anything taste great when washed down with a marg?! Haha!
Enjoy your Friday night!
Lol! I LOVE Grape Nuts, but my boyfriend says only old people eat them so I never buy them!
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
My mom used to make something similar for me all the time as a child–except it had sliced apples too. You should try it out :)
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!
Ha! The last line here is the kicker! ….Everything is >better< when washed down with a margarita! :)
That’s so true about the margarita…I had one at lunch today and not only did everything taste more wonderful, I feel GREAT now, too!
So we ARE long lost twins! I only drink vanilla almond milk too! haha.
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…
LOVE vanilla almond milk! It makes every cereal taste better. I’ve also been making oatmeal with it.
OMG!!! I love grape nuts too… since I was a kid! They’re yummy on yogurt also!!
there’s a place near me that makes “brown bread” gelato – it has grapenuts in it and is amazing:
Haven’t had Grape Nuts in years! I think I would enjoy them even more now, glad you reminded me about them!
I used to have a full-blown Grape Nuts obsession. Now it’s a Cap’n Crunch obsession. Clearly, I’ve matured. :)
I’ve never had grape nuts… my gosh, this looks great! I like buying the unsweetened original almond milk and adding vanilla powder to it. SO intensely delicious.
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…)
I can’t believe I’ve never had grape nuts but this makes me want to try them badly!
It’s been about forever since I’ve had Grape Nuts. Such a yummy, simple cereal. I love cereal as my nighttime snack:)
I love the crunch factor offered with grape nuts but I haven’t had them in forever. I need to fix that!
Mmmmmm, I love Grape Nuts! I eat them almost every morning! I heat them up with rice milk, then drizzle honey over the top…delish!
Haha! I love that you washed it down with a margarita! ;-)
Oh My! We are soul sisters! I am obsessed with grapenuts, agave and vanilla soy milk. I consume it every day! I’m definetly trying it with brown sugar tomorrow.

I’ve never been a grapenuts fan, but THIS I could enjoy. PS – Glad to see you’re still obsessed with instagram :)
Wow – delicious! I am a fan of regular milk, but I would be willing to give it a try….
I’ve been eating Grapenuts just this way for the last few years. Glad to see you’ve caught on.
Oh my, I feel like I could eat this for breakfast and for dessert. Instant love.
I’m going to have to try this! I’m obsessed with Grape Nuts – we buy a 5 lb box (no exaggeration) and I eat them with reckless abandon. Just had a bowl for lunch, actually. :-)
Oh em gee, I ate these ALL the time as a child! Why did I never think of this?!
grape nuts are SO good! have you ever heated it up?! delicious!
OMGoodness I have been craving Grape Nuts for the longest. I think it is a true pregnancy craving and once I saw your picture I knew I needed to get it! I going tomorrow! Arghh! :D
I really like your brown=healthy mentality. I think I’m going to adopt that.
