no bake cereal bars!

Since my last post, my life has changed significantly! On April 21, I gave birth to my amazing daughter, Nori-Luz! Since then, I’ve just been getting used to being a new mom, eating a lot of take out and getting little sleep. Its hard to cook myself and husband nice meals when I am constantly feeding our daughter, heck, its hard to even eat a bowl of cereal – enter, the cereal bar. Easy to grab and snack when you’ve only got one free hand and since they’re no bake, a crying baby can’t distract you from taking them out of the oven on time! I made mine with honey bunches of oats, but you could really use any cereal you’d like.

What you need:

  • 3 cups cereal
  • 1/2 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Grease a 9×13 pan and set aside. Combine cereal, almonds and coconut flakes in a medium mixing bowl. In a small saucepan combine honey, brown sugar and salt until smooth. Remove from heat and add peanut butter and vanilla. Pour liquid mixture into dry mixture and stir. Pour mixture into prepared pan and press flat. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars. ENJOY!
