What to do with all this cereal?!

I found a couple of recipes to use some of my boxes of Kashi Go Lean Crunch. It wasn't a moment too soon being that Vocalpoint just sent more Kashi coupons.

Kashi Apple Crunch
Makes 8 servings

5 green apples, cored and cut into ½_ inch pieces
2 tablespoons apple juice concentrate, unsweetened
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 cups apple juice, unsweetened
1 tablespoons arrowroot powder (or substitute cornstarch)

1/3 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup Kashi ® GOLEAN Crunch!™ cereal
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon apple juice concentrate, unsweetened

Combine apples, apple juice concentrate, turbinado sugar, lemon juice,
spices and apple juice in a large saucepan.

Bring to boil, reduce heat and
simmer for about 15 minutes.

Remove about ¼ cup of apple juice from
mixture and whisk in the arrowroot.

Add arrowroot back to hot mixture and
stir until combined.

Remove from heat.

Place topping ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until mixture is the consistency of streusel.

Pour hot apple mixture into a 9-inch pie pan and smooth out.

Evenly disperse topping over the apples.

Lightly press the topping into place (if needed).

Bake at 375° F for 10 minutes, or until mixture is bubbly and
topping is browned.

Kashi Apple Pancakes
Serves 4

1 1/2 cups Kashi Go Lean cereal (or cereal of choice)
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder (baking soda is fine to substitute, though)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1 apple, diced (I prefer Fuji) -optional

1. Combine cereal and milk in a small bowl and let sit for 15 minutes.
2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
3. When the cereal has almost finished soaking, lightly beat the eggs in another separate bowl and whisk in the melted butter, sugar, and yogurt. Stir in the diced apples, if using.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and stir just until combined. Do not overmix or the pancakes will be tough.
5. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto a medium-hot skillet and flip when the bubbles that appear on top of the pancakes begin to pop. Finish cooking on the other side and serve.
