If you are like me and don’t like wasting any food this is a recipe that uses up all those crumbs at the bottom of the weet-bix box. My kids don’t like eating the crumbs and I prefer porridge with Chia so this is a great way to transform those leftover crumbs into a snack to keep the kids happy. It also requires no baking and is really easy for the kids to make themselves.
