This recipe does require some heat, but its very very easy to make! These bars are high energy snacks, great for bringing hiking, to the beach, or as a filling breakfast on the go!
Step 1: Gather the ingredients.
- 2 cups peanut butter (don’t get the all natural kind that separates, get the standard Peter Pan or Skippy.
- 1.5 cups honey
- 2 of your favorite cereals
- At least 2 fillings (nuts, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, dried fruit, anything you want)
- Sprinkle of salt
Step 2: Add the peanut butter and honey to a small pot over medium heat.
Step 3: While that is melting, gather your cereals. I choose two different flavors of Chex, because the boyfriend has Celiac disease, so we have a gluten free kitchen. You can really choose anything, OR sub one of the cereals for dry oats. In a 9X12 pan, mix 4 cups of Cereal 1 and 4 cups of Cereal 2 in the pan:
Once you come back to your peanut butter and honey, it should look like this:
Step 4: Give it a stir, and pour it over the cereal mix under every piece is coated. It won’t seem like enough at first, but don’t worry, it is.
Step 5: Add your fillings. I used whole walnuts
And chocolate covered raisins:
Press down into the pan until the top is completely flat, and refrigerate over night. In the morning, sprinkle just a little bit of salt on top to cut the sweetness and give it a sweet & salty flavor. All done!
Let me know what you think of these!
