No-bake cereal bars

You are going to love these super simple no-bake healthy cereal bars…

I began making these little treats when my daughter begged ( I mean literal hold my leg beg) for the cereal bars at the grocery store. Yes! our kids sure know the art of embarrassing their parents. I know I am not alone. But before this dramatic scene, I had given in to these store cereal bars several times with an unsettling mind but a heartfelt smile when you see your kids jump with joy as they cart the items. Now we just whizz past the cereal bar aisle with my daughter saying, “mommy can we go home and make yummy healthy bars and have mommy baby bake time”. SCORE!!

I make these in a flash and let her have not one but two squares without a blink. Also these make for a great on-the-go breakfast, after-school snack, playground snack or just snack-snack.

Enjoy making and eating them with your little ones.
