This cereal bar recipe is easy to make with cereal, peanut butter, and honey. They can be eaten as an after school snack or a quick on-the-go breakfast.
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.
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 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.
Then, I mixed in the vanilla and cereal and pressed the mixture into a foil lined pan.
My kids really liked the cereal bars saying, “Hmmm…these are so good!” I like how easy they were to make and I didn’t even have to turn my oven on!
