3 Ingredient Cereal Bars

Cerealbars I’ve been seeing Cheerio bars on Pinterest a lot but all the recipes I’ve found have an extra cup of sugar and/or corn syrup. These are healthier and faster to make.  Less than 5 minutes & 3 ingredients…go!

  • 3 cups of cereal (I used Kashi Heart to Heart, but feel free to use Protein Cheerios or any other kind your heart desires)
  • 1/2 cup Creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup Honey

Microwave honey and peanut butter together for 20-30 seconds and stir. Pour over cereal and mix thoroughly. Press into an 8×8 pan sprayed with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until firm and cut into 9 squares.

Breakfast Cookies

I don’t like rules when it comes to food. Like the kind that says you can’t have cookies for breakfast (and I’m not talkin’ about Cookie Crisp cereal). Or that you have to eat this particular recipe at breakfast – have these anytime! They’re amazing.

cookie 1

  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup Old fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 tbs Peanut Butter (I like to use crunchy for this recipe)
  • 4 squares Chopped dark chocolate (or 1-2 tbs chocolate chips)
  • Optional add ins: Raisins, Dried Cranberries, 1 tbs ground Flaxseed, 2 tbs protein powder.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix all ingredients together. Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Press down (these cookies don’t spread). Bake 8-10 minutes. Serves 8.
