The FiberOne Challenge!

So here it is - the result of my FiberOne AR Ambassador challenge - create a recipe using FiberOne cereal. I came in just half a hair's width under the wire, but I did it despite this month being nothing less than chaotic. And to top it all off, I have now lost my voice due to possibly the worst cold I have ever had in my entire life. Yes, this month has been . . . . exhausting.

But, persistence has prevailed and I have created a recipe - FiberOne Salad Crunchies.

The cast of characters: crushed thyme, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, almonds, FiberOne cereal, and non-stick spray. Simple and easy peasy.

First thing to do is to crush the cereal up a bit in a plastic bag. I did this to get rid of the shape - no other reason. And you all know why. :) Once crushed, place on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet and spray lightly with the non-stick spray. Sprinkle on your seasonings, add the almonds, and spray lightly again, mixing to combine everything.
         
Pop that into a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for about 5 minutes - just long enough to get the mixture nice and toasty. Let it cool completely and place on top of your favorite salad. There you have it - FiberOne Salad Crunchies.

That looks appetizing and seems like a tasty way to get more fiber in my diet!

Interesting, i just might have to try them. So many things to do with fiber one who would have known? Next are you going to spice them up and sub them into your firecrackers? ;)

Caroline, I hope you feel better soon. I wouldn't have the slightest idea what to do with Fiber one. I like the salad idea. That sounds like something I would eat. Thanks for sharing.

About Me
I'm currently a SAHM and loving it. I have four children from college age to preschool, and have been a professional cake decorator for years and when it all comes right down to it, cake is my life. :) I love to cook and bake for my family and especially love doing large meals for holidays. I also blog outside of AR - lifebites-savageone.blogspot.com if you'd like to stop in and visit!
My favorite things to cook
I love finding the unusual recipes and trying them out. My grandmother's recipes are often my favorites - watermelon pickles, three (really four) bean salad, etc. I like to find very old recipes (and recipe books) and bring the forgotten recipes to life again.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is actually quite large but VERY spread out so our cooking traditions usually center around holiday fare. Good, hearty, home cooked dishes and stick-to-your-ribs casseroles and such. And butter. Lots and lots of butter.
My cooking triumphs
Finally being able to work with yeast! I had never had the knack for it until recently when I was determined to get over this love/hate relationship with yeast - I loved to use it and it hated me for it! But now I feel I have maybe developed the patience for it? I always seemed to be in a hurry before, but now things are working quite nicely.
My cooking tragedies
A beautiful dish made up solely by me at around age 10 - an astonishing grape jell-o and rice dish that was, oh, how shall I say it? "Different." :)
