From My Kids to Yours...

**This isn't a recipe- just passing on a cute idea for a fun kids' lunch treat**

Last night my husband and I had to run by Trader Joe's for a few things and I picked up some of their fruity flakes snacks for the kids as a treat. While at the check out the super nice cashier (they are always so very pleasant and helpful there- I love it!) told us that for a treat for his grand kids he uses the fruity flakes snacks in peanut butter sandwiches instead of jelly. I thought that was such a cute idea for the kids so I just had to try it. And of course my girls loved it and told me I had to post this on the blog. So this is for all the Mommies of kids who love Peanut Butter Sandwiches:-)

From my kids to yours...

All you need is:

Apple Raspberry Fruity Flakes, Natures Own Whole Wheat (or Honey Wheat) bread, your favorite peanut butter, and I added flax seed meal too.

And all you do is:
If using flax seed meal mix it into the peanut butter in a separate dish.

Make a basic peanut butter sandwich and line the fruity flakes on top of the peanut butter.

I served it with banana spears.

It's simple but something different for them on a rainy day. This won't be an everyday meal, of course, but it makes for a nice treat once in a while.

If you make it for your little ones, let me know what they think!

Happy cooking!
