Lovely Snack Mix

Now here is a treat you can feel good about giving your loved ones.. yes it is technically “something sweet” but there is also fiber, omega 3’s and antioxidants in it too, from the chocolate cranberries and nuts, which certainly which certainly justifies having a handful or two as dessert or a snack.

cinnamon (optional)
Combine cereal, walnuts, cranberries and chocolate chips together in a large bowl, add a dash or two of cinnamon if desired and store in an airtight container
