I love eating cold cereal and so does my family. We eat many different kinds of cereal from the sweetened varieties to the plain Jane varieties. We eat cereal in the traditional way with milk, from a plastic baggie in the car when we run out of time in the morning, with yogurt and in cereal bars. My family tried the Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal in different ways and liked all of them!
There are times when my kids don’t have time for a bowl of cereal in the morning because they suddenly realized they have a sheet of homework they need to complete or they take too long in the shower. Cereal bars are great for an on-the-go breakfasts or for an after school snack. So, to make the cereal bars, I put honey, crunchy peanut butter, brown sugar and butter in a saucepan and brought it to a boil.
- ⅔ cup honey
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¾ cup crunchy peanut butter
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3 cups cereal
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Mix together the honey, brown sugar, peanut butter and butter in a saucepan.
- Bring it just to a boil over medium heat, stirring often.
- Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and cereal.
- Press mixture into a foil lined, greased 8x8 inch pan.
