EatSmart Recipes - Caterpillars



  • 2 cups flake cereal

  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated soft breadstick dough

  • Yogurt, fruit, applesauce or cottage cheese

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread a large piece of waxed paper or aluminum foil on the kitchen counter.

Put cereal into a sandwich-size plastic bag and lightly crush. One at a time, unravel dough on waxed paper or foil. Fold dough in half so it's about six inches long. Put the dough into the plastic bag and turn it until it is coated with cereal. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, slightly curving the dough to look like a caterpillar.

Repeat with the remaining pieces of dough. Place the dough pieces about one inch apart on the baking sheet.

Bake until light brown, about 15 minutes. Cool 5 minutes, then eat warm.

Good with yogurt, fresh fruit, applesauce or cottage cheese.
