So, I’m really excited to find a new cereal that is SO YUMMY, my kids love it…but it’s dairy-free and gluten-free, so I can have a bowl, too! My lovelies, I’m so excited, I made you a surprise: Frozen Banana-Chocolate Cereal Breakfast Balls, made with (and it’s ok for you to gasp a little) Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate. Oh, yeah, that’s right. The brand you love, the flavor of awesome…just everything a girl needs for breakfast all in one.
I loved using Honey Bunches of Oats for these Frozen Banana-Chocolate Cereal Breakfast Balls because they’ve always been “dedicated to delicious”–so I knew before I even put them in the bowl that this new chocolate variety would continue that tradition and give me big flavor and that awesome texture. And each spoonful is just the perfect combo of crispy, crunchy and NOW awesome cocoa. I want a bowl now, just describing it…it’s so good…But, onward with the recipe, because THAT’S what you’re really here for, after all.
